Ken is the founder and principal of KMK Law Corporation, a boutique law firm in downtown Vancouver providing Estates, Trusts, Elder Law, Litigation and Mediation services. As a long-standing member of the legal community and designated Queens Counsel, Ken has a unique understanding of the disability community combined with his expertise in the area of estates and trusts law to serve families with disabilities.
Ken is extremely passionate and a strong advocate for both the disability and seniors communities and greatly appreciates the opportunity to give back to these important groups. In this regard, Ken has served on numerous boards and committees over the past 25 years with a focus on disability and seniors issues. More specifically, Ken is currently the Chair of the Board for the BC Centre for Elder Advocacy & Supports and Co-Chair of BC’s Elder Law section of the Canadian Bar Association.
However, one of Ken’s biggest passions over the past several years has been in the area of home care supports and specifically, the Choices for Support In Independent Living program (“CSIL”). In fact, Ken has been the forefront in leading the community negotiation with the BC government resulting in two recent rate increases for the CSIL program culminating in over $25 million being allocated to the home care community in British Columbia.
Outside of the legal field, Ken’s diverse portfolio also includes the pleasure of Chairing the Province of BC’s Emergency Medical Assistants Licensing Board since 2011, which oversees licensing and discipline for over 11,000 First Responders in British Columbia. More recently, KMK Law is now in association with Sabey Rule LLP, a well-respected estate and trust firm in Kelowna, British Columbia.
Ken is also a regular and dedicated facilitator of Plan Institute’s Wills, Trusts and Estates Workshop.
