David Greig is a Lawyer, Mediator, and Arbitrator, and has been practicing law for 30 years. He was born in Victoria BC and educated there, in the BC Interior, and Vancouver. After a career in music (which was cut short due to a remarkable absence of talent), Mr. Greig married, and then attended and graduated from the University of Victoria in 1983 (English) and 1986 (law).

During his studies he produced more children than research papers, but he managed to graduate in the top 10% of his class, with several bursaries and awards. After completing articles, he practiced for 7 years with a local firm, doing insurance cases, family law, criminal court work, and just about everything else. He then formed a partnership, where he worked as the managing partner and a litigator for 17 years. In 2010 he left that partnership and established South Coast Law Group, an independent practice (not a partnership).

David practices predominantly in the field of family law, but his love of litigation also sees him engaged in personal injury cases, and inheritance (trust) suits. David is active in the Canadian Bar Association, and has been thrice elected to Provincial Council. In addition, he’s served the Law Society’s PLTC program as a guest instructor, as a lecturer at Continuing Legal Education Seminars, and has been on TV and radio and in print (in several newspapers) and has authored a nationally successful “Separation Agreement” book, published by Self Counsel Press (now in its 14th edition), as well as a new book, entitled “The Separation Guide”. He’s also been active in the International Bar Association, ATLA, and several other groups.

In 2016, David obtained his accreditation (at York University, in Toronto) to serve as a Mediator, and in 2017, returned for accreditation in Arbitration. He offers Mediation, Med/Arb, and Arbitration services through Greig ADR (a division of David R. Greig Personal Law Corporation).

He is the father of four children and a grandfather of five. His interests include guitar, travel, hockey, fly-fishing, and other stuff. David always carries a large case load, prides himself on devoted attention to his clients, but is focussed on early negotiation and resolution. He says he tries to return every call in 24 hours. We’ll see. If you have a question about family law, inheritance, or a personal injury matter, David offers free consultations and practical advice.
