Originally from a small town in Ontario, Spencer spent seven years posted to Victoria with the Royal Canadian Navy before returning to study history and political science at the University of Ottawa. After graduating from Queen’s Law in 2021, Spencer moved back to Victoria to complete his articles with Crease Harman and was called to the British Columbia bar in 2022.
To hone his advocacy skills, Spencer represented Queen’s Law as an oralist in the Bowman Tax Moot in 2020 and as the student coach in 2021. He also completed an internship with the Canada Revenue Agency.
Spencer has assisted clients in a number of practice areas, including civil litigation, administrative law, wills, estates and trusts, and real estate. He has a particular interest in furthering his knowledge of tax law.
Whether with a ship or with a backpack, Spencer has always been keen on travelling to faraway places. Despite having been to six of the seven continents, he is still amazed by the natural beauty of Vancouver Island and is looking forward to exploring more of this corner of the world. He also enjoys reading classic literature and writing historical fiction.
