Welcome to Foo and Company



I’m Stanley Foo, and I'm a lawyer licensed in the Canadian provinces of Ontario (1994), British Columbia (1995) as well as New York (2010).


For now, I live and work in the Greater Vancouver area in British Columbia, Canada, but I have worked and studied all over North America. In fact, before I became a lawyer, I did my undergrad at the University of Waterloo (1986), my masters at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at the Johns Hopkins University (1989, Donner Fellow 1987-1989), and, finally, my law degree at McGill University (1992).


For most of my legal career, I have done mainly family law, including divorces, child custody and support, child protection, spousal support, and property division. But I’m also a general practitioner, which means I can draft your will, start your company, buy or sell your business, and, fight your criminal charges.


When people come into my office, I always tell them they have to be comfortable with the lawyer they hire, because they will be working with him for quite awhile on issues that affect their lives. So, if you need a lawyer, and you're comfortable with me, you may want to retain me.


What makes my law firm different


My staff is fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin, and we try to make our clients comfortable.


But what really sets my firm apart is case law - I'm known for using lots of case law, because I spend hours in the law library. 


My legal team


I'm the principal of my firm, but I have help from my staff, who have been with me for years.
