It’s likely that everyone, at some point during their life, will need a lawyer.

Leonard Kompa, a practicing B.C. lawyer since 1988, assumes both these roles. As principal of LPK Law Corporation, he recently established his firm in New Westminster, and brings over 30 years of legal and courtroom experience to meet his client’s needs.

As well, he endeavours to resolve matters out-of-court; however, when necessary, he vigorously advocates his client’s interests in court.
