Goodwin & Mark LLP’s roots date back to 1953, when our founder, John (Jack) Goodwin, was called to the BC Bar. He then began practicing law as a partner of the firm McQuarrie, Selkirk & Goodwin until 1962 when he struck out on his own as a sole practitioner. In 1970, Jack expanded his legal practice to include Don Mark. They formed a partnership and together established the firm name of Goodwin & Mark. Alex Sweezey joined the firm four years later and became the senior partner after Jack and Don’s respective retirements.

Throughout his 52-year legal career, Jack was always a student of the law. He read voraciously and practiced in an impressive range of civil and criminal areas. His opinions were sought after and highly respected by the legal community. Many partners, associates, and articled students have had the benefit of Goodwin & Mark LLP’s professionalism and mentorship over the decades.

The firm offers representation to both individuals and businesses throughout the Lower Mainland in a wide range of legal practice areas, including corporate and business services, civil litigation, family law, adoptions, trademarks, real estate and wills and estates.

Our Mission

Our mission remains the same today as it was when Jack began practice in 1953: to perform legal services of the highest calibre while remaining active in our community. We look forward to working with you.
