What is Legal Coaching?
Legal coaching connects individuals needing legal guidance with a lawyer who can provide behind the scenes guidance, allowing individuals to take control of their own case. Combining tips, strategies, and knowledgeable insights, it’s an affordable option for those that are struggling to access justice through the traditional routes.
A legal coach’s main objective is to assist you in representing yourself in your family matter most effectively and efficiently possible, given the facts of your case. Legal coaching is different from the traditional client-lawyer relationship because you are the one taking control of your own case. Instead of your lawyer being at the forefront, you are in the driver’s seat of your case, and your coach is helping provide guidance.
What your Legal Coach can help you with?
Legal coaches offer a variety of services depending on the facts of the case and what the client needs help with. This includes but is not limited to:
Why Legal Coaches over Family Lawyers?
The legal coach and client work together as a team, setting out realistic goals which the client is responsible for executing and is accountable for. The Coach is a guide, but the client is in charge. A client-lawyer relationship involves lawyers working with their clients on practical goals; however, the lawyers, upon instructions from their clients, are responsible for their execution and accountable for the strategies that have been executed.
Legal coaching is offered Alberta wide, thanks to abundant remote working technology (telephone, email, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams). We don’t need to be in the same location as you to provide legal coaching.
