Christopher Dunsmore

Christopher Dunsmore-Lawyer

On behalf of the GVR Law Family, we announce the passing of our family member, friend and colleague, Chris Dunsmore.


Chris was an intelligent and capable lawyer, who we often referred to as Chris “Does-more”. He was extremely analytical and detailed. And we mean EXTREMELY. He left no stone unturned, and if you wanted someone to be thorough, it was him. It was one of his gifts.


He loved chatting with staff and others and treated those in our firm as family.  He often took time with people in the office to chat about anything from politics to cases we were working on and if you were in your office, there was zero chance Chris wasn’t going to pop his head in for a visit.  Often, he would finish the conversation, walk out of the office only to return seconds later to add some thoughts to what he just said.


Chris had enormous compassion for people particularly his clients. He strongly advocated for each and every one of them inside and outside the courtroom. Many of his clients have expressed words of praise for him and the work that he did for them. He was a true advocate and lawyer, and a good human being.


Chris had no children and no family in the lower mainland but regularly spoke of his mother and kept in close touch with her often speaking of how intelligent and caring she is, visiting often when his schedule would permit.


It is a shock to us all that Chris is not with us anymore, but we will remember him.


Who can forget him.


We won’t.
