Ronald R. Kumar, B.A., J.D.
Founder of Ronald Kumar Law Group, Vancouver lawyer Ronald Kumar’s passion for the law and his entrepreneurial drive led him to become one of the youngest lawyers to be called to the British Columbia bar at age 25. Now at the age of 33, he is a savvy professional at the helm of a progressive boutique law firm in Vancouver, B.C., specializing in family law, personal injury, estate litigation, civil litigation, immigration appeals, and real estate law. Over the last eight years of his swift ascent as a reputable litigator, he has garnered the respect of both clients and peers for his lawyering skills, unwavering pursuit of excellence, and the personal attention that he shows to every client. But what drives Ronald is not professional accolades or industry status. Having overcome obstacles in his own life, what drives him is empathy, compassion, and his sincere desire to help people.
Born and raised in Vancouver, Ronald established the practice in his home province in 2014 and serves clients across the Lower Mainland as a strong legal advocate. Through either negotiation or litigation, he has successfully obtained favorable results for his clients via settlement or court. With the firm growing at an astounding pace, Ronald recently expanded his practice areas to include family law (divorce/separation cases). His firm provides both collaborative services and litigation services when it comes to family law cases. Despite having a very busy law practice, Ronald commits time to providing pro bono legal services to help people who can’t afford lawyers.
The son of immigrant parents, whose sacrifices allowed him to get where he is today, Ronald’s path to success was not an easy one. He worked hard to achieve his dream of becoming a lawyer. After graduating from Simon Fraser University with a bachelor’s degree in criminology and completing his Juris Doctor law degree, he began articling with boutique law firm, Vertlieb Dosanjh, where his love of litigation was born. Just one week into working at this firm, he was hit with the most formidable challenge he would face—Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Despite the devastating diagnosis, Ronald would not let anything stand in the way of the dream he’d fought so hard for; not even cancer. He continued working full time while battling the deadly disease and undergoing chemotherapy, driven by the same perseverance and determination that had pushed him to overcome every other obstacle that had threatened his goals. In 2017, he was considered cured. After being admitted to the B.C. bar in 2013, he worked as an associate with Vertlieb Dosanjh for one year before starting his own firm in 2014.
Ronald’s passion for law extends outside his practice, as does his commitment to his community. He was the former chair of the New Lawyers Committee, former member of the Membership Committee, and former member of the board of governors at the Trial Lawyers Association of B.C. His active affiliations include being a member of the Trial Lawyers Association of B.C., the Canadian Bar Association, the South Asian Bar Association, and the Law Society of B.C. In service to his own community, he was a former board member of Marpole Oakridge Family Place, and is the founder of the Ronald Kumar Law Scholarship, which is awarded annually to two graduating secondary students at his alma mater, John Oliver Secondary School. He is also an active donor to various cancer research initiatives.
