People


LEGAL COUNSEL SINCE 1936

Altman & Company was first formed by my grandfather, Hy Altman (Q.C.), who was called to the Manitoba Bar in 1936. My grandfather’s three sons all  became lawyers including my father, Joel Altman, who practiced in Vancouver for 45 years.  I established my law firm in 2003 and with the help of my office staff and awesome clients, I am proud to carry on the family tradition.
