Art Kewin is senior counsel at Integrated Legal & Financial Solutions, a unique Canadian firm that offers both legal and financial services where the law and personal finances converge: life transition planning.

Specifically, when clients are:

a. entering or leaving spousal relationships, and
b. engaged in retirement and estate planning while in a blended family.

The key benefits of integrating legal and financial advice are:

a. expert advice about legal options that make financial sense, and
b. savings in professional fees and taxes.

Art is a senior matrimonial lawyer in British Columbia and a Certified Financial Planner®. He litigated or mediated business and matrimonial cases for 18 years. Since 2000 Art has exclusively offered alternative dispute resolution services as a mediator, arbitrator and collaborative lawyer.

Before practicing law Art served in the New Zealand military, Captain (Rtd) RNZAEC, as an organizational psychologist.

Art, his spouse and their son share their passions for snowboarding and bicycling for fitness and adventure. However motorcycling – whether around the continent on his BMW sport-touring bike or along logging roads of the Pacific Northwest on his dual-purpose bike - remains his own irrational exuberance.

What exactly are the benefits of integrated legal and financial services and of Art Kewin's counsel? Here is a sampling of what real clients have to say:
