Patrick Verrier has a strong allegiance to Family Law and particularly strong advocacy skills in critical areas such as child custody, child support, spousal support, divorce, and division of assets.
He is from Vancouver Island and obtained his law degree from the University of Victoria. He is a practicing member of the BC Law Society.
He brings a firm and reasonable approach to resolving family law matters.

Whether the dispute is complex or highly contested, Patrick’s steadfast commitment to his clients achieves a resolution.
Legal disputes can be financially and emotionally costly: Patrick is mindful of this fact. One of his goals, when he obtains a file, is to plan and achieve the best possible fair resolution in a cost-effective manner that reduces the impact of financial and emotional stress on the family.
In his spare time, Patrick enjoys going to the gym and hanging out with his dog. Patrick is also a huge football and hockey fan.
“Patrick guided me through a stressful three-plus-year divorce process and trial. He is values-driven, straightforward and honest. I found him comfortable to work with and speak to. While Patrick is knowledgeable in family law and divorce proceedings, he researched, consulted with colleagues and considered the case from all angles. I appreciated that he is resourceful and cost-conscious. In court, he is alert to details, firm and articulate. During planning and preparation, he was supportive, kind and patient through my struggles. Our successes in court made the journey worthwhile and I am now on a better path. I sincerely hope that the goodness that Patrick has been paying forward comes back to him tenfold. Many thanks to Patrick and team.”
“I am writing to take this opportunity to express in writing my immense gratitude for the service I received as a client for Mr. Verrier. From the first day I met Patrick, he treated me with respect and professionalism and made an otherwise horribly tumultuous time easier to navigate. He provided concise, direct and helpful guidance and through the entire process, I always knew he would do his best to make my voice heard. He is fair, hard-working and tenacious and went far beyond expectations in order to expedite my case. I have forwarded his name to a number of colleagues requiring advocacy. Thank you again, Patrick.”
