Guiding You to Justice®
When in 2007 the Provincial Government put in place a pilot project meant to help the growing number of people struggling with their family law problems, I signed up to help. For over a decade I acted as “Family Advice lawyer” almost every week, learning more and more as time went on about what Self-Represented Litigants (SRLs) need in order to reach a better quality of justice.
The Guidebook ‘Journey to Justice’ is one of the answers I came up with.
I went from thinking I was providing a “band-aid” service to people without lawyers to realizing just how well they could do on their own.
In January 2021, I decided to retire from litigation completely, including providing coaching and support to Self-Represented Litigants. It was a difficult decision, but made a little easier knowing that the guidebook I worked so hard to prepare for people facting court proceedings who don’t have a lawyer, “Journey to Justice: A Practical Guide to Effectively Representing Yourself in Court”, was still available to help them.
I learned so much from working with Self-Represented Litigants over the years and credit them for the book’s success.
