Irina focuses on public utility regulation and administrative law, acting on behalf of low and fixed-income residential ratepayers in regulatory proceedings involving electricity, natural gas and auto insurance rate-making matters before the British Columbia Utilities Commission. Irina also practices poverty law, providing legal representation on systemic social and policy issues.
Irina earned her Juris Doctor in 2015 from the University of British Columbia. While at law school, she volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada providing legal advice to migrant workers. She completed her articles with a full-service downtown firm and was called to the BC bar in 2016.
Prior to joining BCPIAC, she practiced personal injury law at a plaintiff-side law firm, helping those who had been injured in motor vehicle accidents. Before becoming a lawyer in Canada, Irina practiced criminal and administrative law overseas.
When not focused on work, Irina is an outdoor enthusiast and avid photographer. To rest and recharge she enjoys hiking along rugged rainforest trails or sitting on driftwood reading her favourite novel while the sun sets over the Pacific.
