Jesse Dunning was born in Cambridge, England, but it is Abbotsford, British Columbia where he grew up and calls home. He graduated as Valedictorian of Trinity Western University with a Political Studies degree in 2009. After graduation, he worked as a correspondence writer in the Office of the Prime Minister in Ottawa, Ontario, before returning to Law School at the University of British Columbia in 2010. Jesse graduated from UBC with a Juris Doctor in 2013, and has been a proud member of the BC Bar since 2014. Following his graduation, Jesse cut his teeth at a mid-sized full-service law firm in the Fraser Valley. Jesse joined Kane Shannon Weiler LLP as a litigation associate in 2017.
Considering that he thought he wanted to be a solicitor for the longest time, it came as much of a surprise to Jesse as to anyone else when he discovered that he has a passion for litigation. Jesse’s areas of practice include estate litigation, employment law, and personal injury litigation, but he is happy to deal with any area of law which lets him get into court and solve problems for his clients.
When he is not busy fighting the good fight for his clients, Jesse enjoys spending time with his wife and children (preferably outdoors), weightlifting, and writing stories, surprisingly few of which have anything to do with being a lawyer. He is also active in the community and is a youth leader in his church.
AREAS OF PRACTICE:
- Estate Litigation
