Fraser MacLean completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Victoria before earning a law degree from Thompson River University. His experience with family law began with MacLean Law in 2016 as a summer student, then as an articled student after obtaining his Juris Doctorate. After being called to the bar, he has brought the experience gained as a student into an associate role with MacLean Law.
As an articled student, Fraser served as the second chair of a five day trial at the BC Supreme Court, which successfully resulted in the reapportionment of family property for a MacLean Law client (see Dennis v Gill, 2018 BCSC 1533). Fraser has appeared in all levels of court in British Columbia, including the BC Court of Appeal.
Fraser is a forward-thinking lawyer, dedicated to helping his clients move forward with their family matters. He assists MacLean Law’s senior lawyers on complex family law and estate litigation matters and spends time working from the firm’s five other offices in BC and Calgary, where he has gained exposure to a diverse range of family law and estate litigation cases across British Columbia.
As an associate with MacLean Family Law, Fraser has worked to attain a wealth of practical experience, earning a reputation for leadership, dedication, and compassion, always going above and beyond in the practice of law. His clients are grateful for his commitment and guidance in helping them make informed decisions in order to move forward.
In his spare time, Fraser is an avid sports enthusiast. He played hockey for the TRU Law Hockey team and the BC Best Ever Regional Hockey Team. He also enjoys boxing, golf, and travel, always looking to experience new countries and cultures.

My family’s experience with Fraser at MacLean Law brought us great comfort during this difficult time. He can absorb large quantities of information and work it into logical outcomes within the family law system. He stayed abreast of all issues and communicated after hours and while he traveled. Fraser is a passionate, knowledgeable professional but also a caring and honest person."
