Immediate Opening For Either An Experienced Solicitor Or An Opportunity For A Newly Called Or Junior Lawyer

Looking for work/life balance, a great community to raise your family and a firm with longevity, stability and opportunity?

Ridgway & Company is a general practice firm that was established in the Cowichan Valley over 100 years ago and continues to thrive today with six lawyers and many long-term staff.

One of our solicitors, who has many long-term corporate/commercial and wills & estates clients, is retiring at the end of 2023.  We have an immediate opening for either an experienced solicitor or an opportunity for a newly called or junior lawyer who is seeking mentorship by another senior solicitor in the office.

We are looking for someone who wants to become part of our community, and establish themselves for the long-term.  All of our Partners started their legal careers with us and stayed because of the enjoyable, supportive and collaborative work environment, great clients and experienced staff.

Compensation includes salary and bonuses and is commensurate with experience.  We have a full benefit plan, and onsite, free parking in downtown Duncan, which is only minutes away from oceans, lakes, vineyards and mountains.

If you think you would be a good fit for our firm, please send us your resume and a cover letter outlining your education, experience and interests, to Colleen Johel, Managing Partner at

All resumes will be held in confidence.
