Ms. Jacqueline A. Small, B.A. LL.B

“Hard work, dedication, fairness, focus, drive, and my passion for competition have proven to be invaluable in dealing with ICBC on behalf of my clients”
Ms. Small is a Partner at Holness Law Group where her law practice is restricted to personal injury litigation in providing legal representation to the injured against ICBC.

Ms. Small obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Pre-Law Political Science from Washington State University and a Bachelor of Laws from the University of British Columbia. Prior to joining Holness Law Group in 2010, she completed her articles at a prominent medical malpractice law firm and she was an associate for several years at one of the province’s leading insurance law firms where she represented ICBC and other private insurance companies while defending against personal injury claims. Through her past experience as defence counsel, she gained extensive knowledge of ICBC’s strategies and inner practices which has proven to be valuable to her clients when advocating for their rights and interests against ICBC.

Ms. Small has been involved in a number of competitive sports since childhood. She represented Washington State University on the women’s varsity tennis team where she was fortunate to have had the opportunity to compete in the Pac-10 Conference against a number of the top tennis programs in the country. After exhausting her university eligibility, she began playing rugby which she continued to do for over 15 years. During that time and for the better part of a decade, she served as captain of the womens’ program at the Meraloma Rugby Club and she represented British Columbia on the provincial rugby team in national competition. The skills she learned and utilized during her years of competitive athletics such as work ethic, focus, dedication and the ability to perform well under pressure are assets which she relies on in her law practice and the approach she takes with her clients.

Away from the office and in her spare time, Ms. Small enjoys spending time with her family, staying active and coaching rugby.
