Lesra N. Martin, L.L.B.

Barrister & Solicitor

ICBC • Brain Injury • Chronic Pain • Personal Injury


Lesra was called to the BC bar in 1999. Of his eight siblings, Lesra is the only one with a high school diploma. He graduated as an Ontario scholar and then went on to receive an Honours B.A. from the University of Toronto in 1988 and his law degree from Dalhousie Law School.

Given his distinguished notoriety with his involvement in the freeing of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, as well as being a published author of the book The Power of a Promise, Lesra has done a remarkable job of putting Kamloops on the map.

As a one-time prosecutor, he is no stranger to a fight. He has perseverance and a “never quit” attitude. He is a civil litigator, and if you are an innocent victim of an accident, you want him in your corner.
