Who Are We
Angus F. Bickerton (Law Society of Ontario Member 40313D) is a graduate of McGill University (B.A. Honours, 1989), and of the University of Alberta Law School (LL.B. 1995), a former member of the Law Society of Alberta (1996-1999), and has been a member in good standing of the Law Society of Ontario since early 1998. He began his law practice in Brockville later that same year. In 2002, he and Duncan C. Fraser, QC, formed the law firm of Fraser & Bickerton and opened their office at 36 Broad Street in downtown Brockville, where they have remained ever since. After Duncan Fraser retired in 2005, Angus continued as a sole practitioner but determined that mediation was the only viable future for Family Law dispute resolution, and he began mediating disputes informally. Angus received his Master of Laws in Dispute Resolution in 2017, after completing the prestigious LL.M. program at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School. Angus Bickerton holds the Chartered Mediator (C.Med.) designation from the ADR Institute of Canada and Ontario and is an active member of the Ontario Association for Family Mediation.
Angus is ably assisted in his practice with professional and friendly office staff who treat every single client with respect, patience and understanding in what is often the most trying time of a client’s life.
