About Scott Taylor – Senior Counsel

I have been meeting the needs of family law clients throughout the lower mainland of BC for over twenty-five years.

Most often recognized for my trademark fedora, my prior weekly legal columns (Under Appeal), that were published throughout the lower mainland for many years, and my former cable TV program, (Under Appeal), I have provided my unique and practical legal commentary to a variety of major media outlets.

Whether your separation or divorce seems relatively straightforward and amicable, or complex and adversarial, as a family mediator and collaborative divorce lawyer, I have the skills, experience, and understanding to provide you with the legal support you need.

Call today to arrange your thirty minute legal consultation, (and read my blog) – the best ways to help you understand your legal rights and obligations. Let me help you get started!

I practice primarily in the areas of Family Law, Wills/Estates, and Immigration Law. I am regularly involved in mediations and negotiated settlements as a means of avoiding the costly, and time-consuming, court process. However, I also regularly represent clients in both Supreme Court and Provincial Court, should mediation and negotiated settlements prove unsuccessful or inappropriate.
