Sukhmani is an Associate specializing in ICBC claims, slip and fall claims and disability claims.
After graduating with a degree in Criminology and Legal Studies from Simon Fraser University, Sukhmani started her career working for the government, but soon realized that her primary passion was for the law.
Sukhmani was called to the Bar in 2016 and has worked in personal injury and insurance litigation ever since. She has had several notable cases during her career to date, including a motor vehicle accident claim that went all the way to the Supreme Court and was successfully settled for upwards of $300,000.
She says there are many things she enjoys about her job, but it’s the personal aspect that she likes the most. She is committed to building relationships with her clients, and is pleased that they can contact her directly, and vice versa. Sukhmani also welcomes the fact that she works on a contingency basis, rather than an hourly basis, ensuring that she can represent people from all walks of life.
This dedicated approach does not go unnoticed, as one testimonial from a previous client reveals:
“Suki has a most calm and relaxing bedside manner. Always kind, composed yet casual, her poise gave me great confidence and comfort. Suki was very accommodating to my high maintenance needs and queries. She was immediate in returning my phone calls and emails. She even got an advance from ICBC to cover a portion of my out of pocket expenses three months into the claim. I was injured in September 2016 and six months later I have received more than fair compensation. This is all thanks to Suki and the John Mickelson team.”
During her spare time, Sukhmani does a significant amount of pro bono work via the organization Access Pro Bono. When she’s not helping people with their legal matters, she can usually be found swimming, updating her food blog or travelling – which is undoubtedly one of her favourite things in life!
She is a member of the Law Society of British Columbia, the Canadian Bar Association, the Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia and the South Asian Bar Association.
