Jordan Thorne was attracted to the law because of the endless learning. She was drawn to the educational rigor, and she found that the lessons in law and in life continue each professional day. It guided her to win the both the Insurance Law Award and Tax Law Award while at the University of Victoria, and now she is winning for clients at HSJ.
“The most gratifying part of the practice of law is when you are able to help a client resolve a problem that they once found overwhelming or insurmountable,” she said.
People turn to Jordan when situations occur like collecting on a problematic debt, someone is suing them and they need a defender, or there is a dispute that needs resolution. It can often be stressful and anxious for the client, but Jordan’s job is to craft the happiest ending possible. One of the best feelings she gets to share is telling the client that the problem has been solved.

Jordan is a fighter. During law school she joined Pro Bono Students Canada through the Together Against Poverty Society, she was a peer tutor for the Amicus Student Success Program, and volunteered for the UVic Legal Information and Business Law clinics.
Her drive perhaps comes from a lifetime of competitive athletics. Growing up in Prince George she was active in golf, volleyball, tennis, a long list of sports and activities. Today, a lot of those continue (she nailed the women’s Closest To The Pin shot at the 2019 Commonwealth Cup charity golf tournament), and she has added in going on adventures with her golden retriever Kinley, especially places like Forests For The World.
She values a well rounded life, though, with her artistic side being exercised as a director on the board of the Two Rivers Gallery.
In winter, she and her husband like to get some sun in Mexico but they also enjoy all the activities the snow has to offer back home in Prince George.
