Kerry Somerville

I was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and began my legal career on the Prairies. in 1987. I still return "home" regularly. I have made North Vancouver my home for the past 25 years and have, since my call to the BC Bar in 1993, always practiced on the North Shore. I have been a family lawyer for most of legal career, and my practice has been exclusively in the area of family law for many years. I have been a collaborative lawyer since its inception in BC in 1998 and strongly believe that the collaborative approach offers a better and less destructive way for families to resolve conflict when their family structure changes. The collaborative team is there to support and assist families as they transition to a new way of being a family following separatiion.
