Lindsey Richardson: A Passion for Law and Wine
Lindsey Richardson, a native of the Okanagan, has always felt a deep connection to the region. Before embarking on her legal journey, Lindsey spent over six years immersed in the Okanagan wine industry. Her passion for wine led her to obtain the WSET Level 3 Certification in Florence, Italy.
Transitioning from vineyards to courtrooms, Lindsey pursued her Juris Doctor from Thompson Rivers University. Throughout her law school journey, she gained invaluable experience working at Jaimie Kidston Law Office. Now, as a fully-fledged lawyer, Lindsey focuses on civil litigation, family law, personal injury and sexual assault survivors, wills, estates, and corporate matters. Beyond her professional achievements, such as her contribution to an Estate Law paper in 2021, Lindsey cherishes moments outdoors with her spouse and daughter, preferably accompanied by a good cheese board.
Jaicee Payette: From Dance Floors to Courtrooms
Jaicee Payette’s roots run deep in the Okanagan. After a brief stint away to complete her law degree and articling year, Jaicee returned to her beloved hometown. She obtained her Juris Doctor in May 2022 from Thompson Rivers University and honed her skills at a prominent firm in Vancouver.
Jaicee’s areas of expertise span estate litigation, wills & estates, family law, small claims, and general civil litigation. She has made notable contributions to various legal publications, showcasing her dedication to the profession. Before her legal pursuits, Jaicee was a dance instructor in Lake Country, BC, and she remains an active member of the Okanagan dance community. When she’s not advocating for her clients, Jaicee enjoys exploring the region’s wineries and embracing the great outdoors.
