Hello, I’m Lisa
I am a practicing family law lawyer, having been called to the Ontario Bar in 1995. I am also an Associate Certified Coach, certified by the International Coaching Federation.
I became interested in and started doing limited scope legal work long before I knew what to call it. In 2011, I began a rigorous certification program in professional coaching. With more than 200 coaching hours under my belt, I recognized that I could apply many of the techniques and principles of coaching to the delivery of legal services.
I launched my new enterprise www.FamilyLawALaCarte.ca in January 2016 through which I offer limited scope and legal coaching services to family law consumers. In 2017, I served as a senior advisor to the brilliant Nikki Gershbain, a Law Foundation Fellow (Ontario), who developed a legal coaching curriculum and training material for use in lawyer’s professional development work. I now sit on the steering committee of the Family Law Limited Scope Services Project (Ontario) www.familylawlss.ca.
I created Legal Coach Training to share coaching tools and techniques with the legal profession. We are a helping profession. Let’s make a positive impact.
