Wesley Sweeney was born in the beautiful city of Whitehorse, Yukon and was later raised in East Vancouver. From witnessing the injustices that people face in our local community Wesley was compelled to pursue a career in Law. He achieved his Juris Doctor in 2017 from UBC and completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations where he was awarded the UBC President’s Entrance Scholarship.
Wesley started his practice in insurance defense at a prominent Vancouver firm where he developed a strong understanding of how insurance companies defend claims. Joining Slater Vecchio in 2019, he now uses this unique knowledge to fight insurance companies on behalf of plaintiffs in order to maximize their compensation.
Wesley is also a strong champion of legal rights for low-income individuals. He volunteered at the University of British Columbia Law Student’s Legal Advice program in order to provide free legal services to those who could not afford the cost of representation.
