Perry Mazzone is a litigation generalist, taking on causes in diverse areas of the law. However, his primary focus is commercial litigation, wills and estates litigation, and personal injury claims on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants.

Perry is a pragmatic thinker who will provide you with objective and practical advice in order to resolve your issues early through negotiation or mediation. Alternatively, if a trial is necessary, you will want Perry in your corner if you want an effective advocate to make your case.

With over 30 years of trial experience behind him, Perry has seen it all and can use that knowledge to your benefit and advantage. A skilled negotiator who is also trained as a mediator, he will fight for your rights to achieve resolution before trial. At trial, he is a tenacious advocate who has constantly demonstrated the skills of a seasoned barrister. In that regard, he is a guest lecturer for the UBC Law School advanced advocacy course-cross-examination component

Perry has worked at large firms and small firms throughout his career. He joined Virgin Hickman in 2015 in order to take advantage of the collegiality of the lawyers in the firm and to give his clients a more personal level of service. He enjoys the assistance he is able to give to clients who come to him with problems and leave with the solutions.
