WestCoast ADR Law Group

The lawyers, mediators, arbitrators and staff of West Coast ADR Law Group believe that alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is much better suited to family law disputes than litigation, and have worked to make it a more commonly used approach for separating couples in Vancouver, Surrey, New Westminster and other nearby areas.

Westcoast ADR Law Group

West Coast ADR Law Group was established by Carol W. Hickman, Q.C., to assist parties going through separation and divorce to find solutions outside of the court system that are mutually beneficial. Carol has practiced family law for over 25 years and is a skilled litigator having experience in all levels of court, including the British Columbia Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Our lawyers, mediators and arbitrators have seen firsthand the kind of damage done to families in the court system.

Wanting a better approach for her clients, Carol began working as a mediator and collaborative family lawyer over 15 years ago. She has advocated to encourage a healthier approach to family breakdown in British Columbia’s family law system. In 2012, Carol founded West Coast ADR Law Group, and in 2014 obtained her Master of Laws (ADR) from Osgoode Hall Law School.

We have experience dealing with all issues related to separation and divorce, including property division, custody, guardianship and support.
