Managing Partner

Rowan Davison completed his Bachelor of Political Science at the University of Calgary in 1988. He then moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, where he attended the University of British Columbia (UBC), Faculty of Law. Soon after commencing studies at the UBC, Rowan decided his passion was family law. He obtained his Juris Doctor in 1991. After his articling year, Rowan started his own family law practice in downtown Vancouver, a practice he ran successfully until 1999. Rowan then relocated to Vancouver Island where he joined the family law department at Duncan’s largest law firm, Orchard, and Company.

Moving to the Langley area in 2012, Rowan brings his 29 years of commitment to the practice of family law to his new partnership with Joan Dreyer, forming the law firm of Dreyer Davison Lawyers LLP, a firm with 90 years of collective experience in the practice of family law. Rowan has also practiced extensively in the areas of wills and estates and residential conveyancing.

While practicing at Orchard and Company, Rowan was active in the Cowichan Valley Bar Association, an organization composed of the lawyers practicing in the Cowichan Valley. He enjoyed his tenure, first as Vice-President for a 1-year term, then as President for a 1-year term and then as Treasurer for a 4-year term.

Rowan’s approach to family law is hands-on and sensitive to the turmoil and emotional upheaval that often accompanies the breakdown of a marriage or relationship. Rowan’s own experience in co-parenting two boys from a very young age to their adult years assists him in understanding the personal nature of family law issues.

While adopting a collaborative approach to dealing with family law issues, Rowan has successfully conducted hundreds of hearings and trials to the benefit of his many clients. Keeping in mind that the participants (including the children) in family law matters generally benefit from a negotiated settlement, Rowan will, without hesitation, involve the court should it be necessary.

Practice Areas:

  • Family Law
  • Child Protection
  • Wills & Estates

Rowan Davison did an excellent job with my parenting case. Took the time to truly listen and focus on all things that matter. Highly recommend him and Dreyer Davison Family Law.
