About Us

River Valley Law is a law firm in downtown Duncan, BC.

Patricia Blair opened RVL in 2021 to serve the Cowichan Valley.

When Patricia decided to go to law school in 2007, she knew that she wanted to bring that training and expertise back to her home community.  After eight years of practicing law in the valley, opening RVL is the culmination of that dream. 


Family Law and Family Law Mediation

Patricia’s experience of family law in BC is extensive: from drafting cohabitation agreements, to urgent applications for protection orders, to mediated separation agreements, and Supreme and Provincial Court trials.

Patricia understands that changes in relationships are inherently emotional and stressful. 

River Valley Law takes a team approach to resolving family law matters. We work both for and with our clients to determine the best way to move your file forward. We take a practical approach that focuses on timely and cost-effective resolution. While we encourage our clients to keep decision-making in their own hands by resolving matters outside of court, we are also your strongest advocate in court if that is where we need to go.
