Elizabeth Mah, Owner-Lawyer

Paperclip Law Elizabeth

I started Paperclip Law to create a company that provides legal services in a way that you understand. Easy peasy. I want you to have the peace of mind to make the big legal decisions that are best for you, your family and your business.

"Work" Stuff

I have a Commerce degree from the University of Calgary, with concentrations in finance, risk management and insurance and graduated from the University of Saskatchewan law school in 2004.  I then articled at a litigation boutique firm in Victoria, BC and finally became a lawyer on Christmas Eve.  I returned to the North Shore, where I was born and raised to figure out what I wanted to do when I grew up.  After a short (but awesome) time at a large downtown hotel helping with events, conferences, weddings and pouring many cups of tea, I returned my focus to my (debt and) legal career and joined one of the largest law firms in North Vancouver for about 6 years, first, as an associate and then a partner.

"Why We Work" Stuff

I love experimenting in the kitchen with a very helpful toddler, retreating to the spa and spending precious time with my husband and snuggling with my two little girls. In my pre-mom life, I loved travelling to very far away places, eating warm meals out when they arrived at the table, watching hockey games at the arena or on tv (even on school nights!), sleeping when I wanted to, and peacefully walking the Seawall.
