In her role as associate at Woodward and Company, Caily litigates zealously on behalf of each of her clients– no matter how big or small the case. Her practice focuses on civil and administrative law, with an emphasis on constitutional litigation.
Originally from the States, Caily moved to Canada to study law at the University of British Columbia. Post graduation, she clerked at the B.C. Court of Appeal and was called to the bar in 2009. She developed a broad civil litigation practice at a boutique litigation firm in Vancouver for 6 years. In 2016, she became the Acting Litigation Director for the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association. She moved to Victoria and joined Woodward and Company in 2018.
Caily has acted as counsel on a number of significant constitutional cases, including litigation that struck down the laws authorizing indefinite solitary confinement in federal prisons across Canada. In her current role, Caily’s belief in the transformative potential of the law serves as a powerful motivator, particularly when it comes to working with clients who have suffered decades of historical injustices.
Whether she is litigating a complex constitutional matter, or representing a party in a commercial or employment matter, Caily is a client-focused and committed advocate.
