What is Legal Coaching?

Legal coaching tailors training to the specific needs of your case, avoiding the unnecessary breadth of expertise that comes with retaining a family lawyer.

At Jones Divorce & Family Law, our legal coaching is designed to equip you with the essential knowledge for a positive resolution, with a family lawyer assisting you every step of the way, enabling you to confidently self-represent in the Alberta family law system.

“I’d like to express my deep gratitude to Lindsay Ewens-Jones for her patience, professionalism and legal guidance over the past two years. Not only is Lindsay an amazing lawyer, she’s a fantastic human being. The genuine compassion, empathy and personal support she showed my family was invaluable throughout our battle.

In a perfect world, I wouldn’t need the services of legal counsel going forward, but if I do need legal counsel again, it’s an incredible comfort to know that I’ll have one of the best in my corner”.
