Portrait of Carol Cochrane

Knowledgeable. Practical. Creative. Compassionate.

Carol Cochrane brings to her Family Law practice more than thirty years of experience in the negotiation of domestic contracts and the resolution of the challenging issues that arise when a relationship breaks down: custody, access, support and property equalization. Complimenting her representation of clients from all walks of life, Carol is often relied upon by counsel in the Eastern Ontario region to serve as mediator, settlement facilitator and arbitrator by reason of her expertise and proficiency in the field of Family Law.

Carol regularly demonstrates her dynamic presentation skills outside of the courtroom, serving as a lecturer and instructor with the Canadian Bar Association, Ontario Bar Association, County of Carleton Law Association, Carleton University, Algonquin College and the Ottawa Board of Education. Carol currently serves as Co-Chair of the Ottawa Association of Family Law Arbitrators and is the senior member of the Bench and Bar Committee. Carol has been on the stage in the Annual Lawyer Play with the Great Canadian Theatre Company eight times since 2007.

Carol Cochrane is a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada and belongs to the Canadian Bar Association, Ontario Bar Association, County of Carleton Law Association and the Ottawa Association of Family Law Arbitrators.


Interesting Fact:
Carol started her theatrical career in her home city of Montreal. Her role in Centaur Theatre’s “Land Before Time” is available from the National Film Board archives. Have you got a copy?

“Thank you for all of your help and hard work during this separation. Your advice and recommendations were wonderful. It certainly was very comforting knowing that I had such an intelligent and (what seems like such a weak description but I can’t think of another word at the moment) competent lawyer handling my case. Your expertise became evident on so many occasions and the confidence and assurance that I gained every time I spoke with you was incredibly helpful. I’ve never been great with words, I’m afraid, and so this email won’t do justice to the depth of thanks that I would like to say to you, but please know that your help was so very much appreciated, and while I hope to not have to need your services in the future, I know exactly who I would call if required!”

“Thursday’s decision was only reached because of your thoroughness, determination and professionalism. Thank you for your guidance and support. Thank you for everything you have done and thank you for helping me get my life back.”
