Ottawa Family Lawyers

We started Court Coach LLP with the desire to help people navigate the family law court system.

We recognize that many individuals are capable of advocating on their own behalf, but may need assistance in learning court processes, drafting mandatory forms, and understanding their rights and obligations under the law.

We are dedicated to guiding self-represented individuals through our legal system.

We can review and draft documents, help prepare you for court appearances, provide information on court rules and procedures, and offer legal advice with respect to your specific situation.

At Court Coach LLP, we appreciate that each client’s legal matter is unique, and we strategize with you to protect and promote your best interests.
