We’re pleased to announce the change of ownership and new name for our law firm. Formerly owned by Jeremy Carr, Jeremy Carr & Associates was purchased by Jerry Steele in January 2018, and is now Steele Law Corporation.
To ease the transitions and avoid client confusion, we worked for over a year under the name of J Carr & Associates and are now ready to do business under our new name.
Jeremy Carr & Associates was started by Jeremy Carr in 1983, and was originally located in Esquimalt, BC. Jeremy was extremely well known in the community and across the province. He’s known for his passion for protecting civil liberties and Charter rights, as well as helping his clients avoid time in jail.
Jeremy also developed significant expertise in personal injury claims and impaired driving defenses.
Jeremy was called to the British Columbia Bar after graduating from the University of Victoria Faculty of Law. Prior to law school he earned an undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Alberta. In 1983, Jeremy began his own law practice in Victoria, B.C. Today, clients continue to be drawn to our practice because of the firm’s experience, reputation, and a tradition of excellence that Jeremy set the standard for.
In October 2012, Jeremy received the Contribution to the Law Award. This award is presented annually to a member of the Victoria Bar who has made a significant contribution to the development of a legal issue, and whose involvement has reflected positively on the legal profession. Jeremy received this award in recognition of his lead role in the successful challenge of the former Immediate Roadside Prohibition Regime, which was found to be in violation of the Charter and declared unconstitutional by the B.C. Supreme Court.
