Local lawyers purchase bear on multi-Centre mural

Brad Chudiak and Pat Schmit's company purchased a bear on the Integris mural in Multi-Centre

Brad Chudiak and Pat Schmit are happy to support their community.

For the past approximately 31 years, Brad Chudiak and Patricia Schmit have called Quesnel their home. Both came to Quesnel to article before becoming fully licensed lawyers.

“The community has been good to us and we have always been dedicated to Quesnel clients first and foremost. That’s always been our policy,”Chudiak said.

Over the years, their full service law firm has grown. The firm practices in both Provincial and Supreme court and includes services in virtually all areas of the law.

Schmit was the first lawyer in Quesnel to become a Bencher representing the County of Cariboo (Benchers sit on the board of the BC Law Society which deals with the regulation of the practice of law in the public interest.) Schmit has been named a Queen’s Counsel, the first lawyer from

Quesnel to receive that designation.

Recently, their law firm purchased a bear for $5,000 on the Integris Mural to be included in the design of the proposed North Cariboo Multi-Centre.

“The mural appeals to our love of the

outdoors and it should be an attractive piece of artwork with a bit of variety”, Chudiak said.

“We enjoy the small town feeling in Quesnel and it’s a great place to live with all of the outdoor amenities and the Multi-Centre should add to the attractiveness of Quesnel.

“As such, we want to give back to the community which has been so good to us.”
