Lawyer Profiles

Aharon was called to the Bar of British Columbia in 2012 and has been with Herald Street Law since October, 2017. He practices primarily in the areas of residential and commercial real estate, lender financing, wills, estates, corporate and commercial law.

 

Prior to his career as a lawyer, Aharon studied in both Ireland (B.A., LL.B.) and Victoria (MBA). Ireland continues to be Aharon’s favourite place to visit and he returns nearly every year. Aharon’s philosophy in terms of how he practices law is to emphasize the service experience for the client and to ensure the client feels understood, valued and well informed of the legal process that they are engaged with. Each client is treated as an individual, because no two clients or legal engagements are quite the same.

 

When not in the office, Aharon can be found on a playground or at an ice cream shop with his beautiful daughter.

Kristin graduated from UVIC Law in 1990 and was called to the Bar of British Columbia in 1991. She has been practicing in Victoria ever since, starting her own firm, Herald Street Law, in 2004.

 

After over 30 years of practice, Kristin recently handed over the ownership “reins” for the firm to her colleague, Aharon Ittah, but is continuing a limited practice with the firm in mortgage lending work for several specialty clients.  As well, Kristin regularly acts in the capacity of executor for estates and as attorney under power of attorney appointments for her clients.  Kristin is working on a part-time basis as she eases into retirement, carrying on both her limited client work and supporting her colleagues at the firm as they take on her clientele.

Kristin has island roots, growing up in the Cowichan Valley on a rural farm. She enjoys outdoor activities, wildlife photography and travel and is looking forward to having more time for these activities in the coming years.

Chanelle was called to the Bar of British Columbia in February 2020, and joined Herald Street Law in May 2022. She has called the island her home since attending law school at the University of Victoria. She practices mainly in estate and incapacity planning, estate administration, and real estate. She volunteers as a Director of the Victoria Bar Association, and as the Vice Chair of the Young Lawyers section of the Canadian Bar Association.

 

Chanelle values clear communication, and strives to ensure her clients feel supported and heard. She takes a compassionate approach to law, and enjoys collaborating with clients to find creative solutions to their unique goals.  

Most days after work Chanelle may be found enjoying the outdoors: either in her garden, or exploring local trails with her dog. She also loves baking, playing board games, and the artsy pursuit of pyrography.
