We practice Real Estate law, Estate work (Wills and Powers of Attorney) including various
other contract and notarial services throughout the Fraser Valley (Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford,
and Chilliwack) and have been serving the Vancouver lower mainland and Fraser Valley for
over 22 years! Working with previous owner John Jeffrey as her mentor, Judith received her Royal Decree as a Notary Public on June 10, 1988 later receiving her Mediation accreditation in 1999.
Our office is situated at ground level, is wheelchair accessible, with plenty of parking at the front of the practice and rear parking lot of the building. We are located in downtown Langley City in the “Hacienda” building beside the Langley Community Policing Station and across the street from Langley City Hall and Home Hardware.
We are a well-known and highly regarded between the real estate industry and banking communities. We are on the “approved” lists of most lending institutions and mortgage companies.
Judith Piccolo has worked in real estate law for over 40 years, first working as a leasehold secretary at the National Harbours Board and subsequently at other private practices as a Conveyancer and Paralegal prior to receiving her Royal Decree.
We are unique in that our practice is augmented by a management and consulting team which has over 25 years in office and bank management while specializing in retail and commercial lending. This experience allows us to answer most mortgage/lending related questions providing value-added service that most other practices can not. This helps our clients better liaise with their lender of choice from a position of strength and knowledge.
Judi is an active Rotarian and past-Secretary of the Langley Rotary Club and a Past-Director of the Langley Lodge, an elderly care centre.
The Society of Notaries Public
The tradition of Notaries goes back over 2000 years — to the dawn of recorded history. Notaries laid down the Codex Hammurabi, the oldest evidence of recorded law. Notaries were also employed by the Catholic Church to guide the light of civilization through the Dark Ages. The Notary’s reputation for trustworthiness meant that documents retained a stable reliability throughout centuries of upheaval.
BC Notaries are governed by the Notaries Act of BC and the discipline of their professional society. Today, the position of Notary as a member of one of the branches of the legal profession is sanctioned and safeguarded by law. BC Notaries are unique in North America, providing non-contentious legal services to the public.
The Society receives over 1600 application inquiries from the public annually! On average 20 to 25 students per year are selected.
The professional work of a Notary is covered by an insurance plan that protects the public.
The average age of a BC Notary is 43; 55 percent are women. BC’s Notaries reflect many ethnic backgrounds and languages.
Notaries in BC put a high priority on service to their local communities. Over one third are involved in fundraising and social service, over one third in business associations, and more than 30 percent are active in youth sports and recreation.
