Let's Talk
Keri Grenier

Keri Grenier is a passionate and caring lawyer for those who have been injured in accidents or through the negligence of others. Focusing her law practice on personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death matters, she understands the issues and anxieties facing those who have suffered injuries and responds with practical information and timely solutions to their needs and concerns.

For more than a decade, people who have suffered personal injuries in any way — in a motor vehicle accident, by slipping and falling in a store or parking lot, through a physical assault, by unsafe products, or at the hands of medical professionals such as doctors, dentists and therapists — have turned to Keri to help them obtain compensation and damages. She has also represented the families of people killed through accidents or malpractice, including children and older relatives.

Keri starts helping her clients right away, providing guidance and assistance with obtaining insurance benefits, including employment insurance and both private and ICBC coverage. She also explains the litigation process and how judges arrive at a “fair” outcome in personal injury cases. She gathers all the evidence the court will need and uses it for either settlement or to get a fair resolution. Her goal is to relieve her clients of the stress of dealing with insurance and compensation issues.

Keri accesses a wide range of resources and professionals to support her service to clients. She routinely works with doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists, massage therapists, counselors, economists, accountants and any other specialists who can help her clients recover from injuries, calculate their damages, or testify on their behalf.

Keri is widely respected within the legal community for her professional activities. She writes a monthly personal injury column on Castanet.net called INJURYwise and has co-authored the Employment Chapter in the CLE-BC Strata Property Manual. She is a member of the Kelowna Bar Association and an Executive Member of the Trial Lawyers Association of B.C. Keri is also very active in the Okanagan community with her children, counting Kelowna Minor Hockey, Okanagan Mission Youth Soccer Association, Kelowna Minor Basketball Association and Rutland Minor Baseball among the  many other activities that keep her family busy.

A native of Saskatoon who earned her law degree at the University of Saskatchewan in 2000, Keri has been a practicing lawyer since 2001. Before moving to Kelowna in 2007, she worked as an articling student and associate lawyer with a large Vancouver firm. Her top priority is her husband and three children, but she is also an avid martial arts fan who enjoys boxing and kickboxing along with playing soccer, basketball and other sports.
