Paul J. Hergott

B.Admin., LL.B., Lawyer

Paul grew up on a farm near Melville, Saskatchewan, a child of parents who had each served as Catholic clergy missionaries in third world countries before leaving the Church to raise a family. A strong work ethic cultivated through his farming background fueled his pursuit of a business degree and then a career in law.

Paul joined the Canadian military reserves after grade 11, and continued training while achieving a business degree at the University of Regina and his law degree with the University of Victoria.

Paul has practiced law in the Okanagan since 1996, when he was brought on board with Bassett & Company in West Kelowna. After over 11 years of a rewarding affiliation with the fine lawyers of the now disbanded Bassett & Company, Paul founded Hergott Law in 2007.

Paul’s practice area began in the legal warfare of litigation. Gradually, he developed a passion for and built an exclusive practice pursuing fair compensation for injured victims. Changes in British Columbia law in 2021 and a desire to step back from the rigors of a litigation practice led to developing expertise in the much more sedate practice area of wills and estates.

Paul Hergott and the firm have been recognized by the local Chamber of Commerce for “customer service”, “quality excellence”, and “business person of the year”.

Paul was a founder, and has been a member of Okanagan Business Excellence since 1999.

When not at the office Paul enjoys the beautiful Okanagan with his wife and children. Paul would be happiest outdoors hiking, biking, skiing or trying to make his annual snow hut even larger than the previous years.
