Duncan Allen Law


Duncan Allen Law LLP was founded by Kara Duncan and Laura Allen, two University of Victoria graduates who envisioned a firm where they could apply their own brand of egalitarian and community values to the practice of family law. The result is a boutique, modern law firm that focuses on client experience and service.

Our office is located in beautiful Nanaimo, BC, in the Old City Quarter. The goal is to put you at ease as soon as you walk through our door – we strive to provide accessible, realistic legal advice in a calm, spa-like atmosphere.

Our purpose is to act as a strong advocate for you, whether you need us in or out of the courtroom. We focus on giving thoughtful counsel and encouraging economically sound decisions, while always ensuring the best interest of any child involved is the utmost priority.

We understand that every situation is unique, and that family conflict or breakdown can comprise some of the most stressful events that a person will experience in their life. For this reason we are committed to investing time in understanding each family dynamic throughout the course of our professional relationship in order to offer a service that is tailor-made for you.

We offer further legal, financial, and emotional support in the form of our network of integrated, trained professionals. We love to collaborate and our goal is always getting the best result for our clients – whether it’s with our assistance or someone else’s.
