Vivienne is a senior BC lawyer with experience in a wide range of practice areas.
In family law and divorce matters, Vivienne’s focus is on helping clients resolve their issues as amicably as possible, whether those issues involve children, support or asset division.
When it comes to civil disputes, Vivienne has dealt with cases involving a wide variety of subjects, including negligence, construction defects, shareholder/partnership problems, and business disputes of all kinds.
Vivienne has worked for strata councils and individual owners in Vancouver and throughout the Lower Mainland and has given advice on a number of strata-related issues primarily with a view to helping her clients resolve their problems internally rather than in the B.C. courts. Vivienne has also advised clients and assisted them with preparing their cases for submission to the Civil Resolution Tribunal.
Vivienne is also able to help clients who have been disinherited, or who have questions about their own or a relative’s will or estate.
Vivienne’s first career was as a police constable with the R.C.M.P. in Quebec and Nova Scotia. She obtained her law degree, followed later by an LL.M., from the University of British Columbia.
Vivienne continued to pursue her educational interests and obtained a second LL.M. in information technology and telecommunications law from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. She opened Railtown Law in Gastown in 2011 and in 2016 moved the office to the North Shore where Railtown’s whole team now lives.
Vivienne welcomes inquiries and clients from all over the world on matters relating to the law in British Columbia.
