OUR STORY, VALUES, CULTURE, & CAREERS
In 1997, Marnie Stevenson, Tyler Luchies, and James Legh, decided to come together to form Stevenson Luchies & Legh. More than 20 years later, we keep expanding our services to help people in the diverse legal areas of their lives, and we are now among the top five law firms in Victoria, B.C.
We believe in service.
We believe in the highest level of legal service, in mobilizing a network of lawyers and other professionals to solve your problems with the least use of your emotional and financial resources. It’s not about how much lawyers make. It’s about becoming the professionals you call first.
We believe in family.
Our people are what makes us what we are, and family is what makes them –and us. We believe in supporting our team, as they support their families.
We believe in equality and diversity.
Equality is not only fair but necessary for our legal team and for the community we serve. We embody our belief by keeping opportunities open for all –equally.
We believe in giving back to our community.
We volunteer personally and as an organization. We support Scouts, various sports teams, and environmental causes and businesses. We believe everyone can – and should – try to make our world a little better.
We believe in having fun.
From sports events to staff and family parties, we believe in getting together to enjoy and relax.

ARTICLING WITH US
Every year we hire students to article with us, according to the requirements of the Law Society of British Columbia. You can expect to assist senior lawyers and to actively participate and learn the inner workings of a law firm where team work is a fundamental value.
“My experience during summers and articles was one of mentorship. Mr. Luchies and Mr. Legh’s experience and commitment to the education of young lawyers enriched and expedited my development. The firm’s broad practice allowed for exposure to many areas of law. The entire firm, from lawyers to staff, are welcoming and supportive and I would recommend the firm and experience to prospective students.”
“The calibre of legal talent at SLL is impressive. Everyone, including the partners, is willing to take my call, if I have a question. My experience has afforded me a depth of involvement and responsibility I would not have had elsewhere.”
I was exposed to a broad range of practices areas, including family, estates, real estate, corporate and personal injury law. Tyler took his role as my principal very seriously and made a concerted effort to ensure that my articling experience was positive. After completing my articles, I continued to practice with SLL for nearly a decade and received an enormous amount of support from the staff, associates and partners. My experiences at SLL provided a solid foundation for my ongoing practice in the legal profession.
