Recently, many self-represented clients have contacted me about providing coaching and support services. While full-service lawyering is always useful, many clients are now choosing to represent themselves in their family law or child protection proceedings because of financial or personal reasons. In our experience, coaching and support can be an effective use of limited resources and usually leads to high client satisfaction with the lawyer’s services.
Given the explosion in interest in this service, the below are our answers to some commonly asked questions about these services. Please note that the below is intended as information only and is not legal advice. If you want more information about how a lawyer can help you represent yourself, please contact us.
