A legal coach is a legal professional who provides support and advice to clients who wish to represent themselves. Certified Legal Coaches can be found through the Legal Coaches Association directory. Although you are ultimately responsible for all aspects of your legal matter, you can consult with your legal coach on a regular basis to have assistance with any of the following tasks:
- Initial consultation to identify options available to resolve a dispute, whether that be through negotiating a settlement, mediation, arbitration or the courts
- Assisting with completing court forms and documents
- Assisting with preparation of an affidavit for an application or in response to an application
- Obtaining general legal advice and information on relevant case law & legislation
- Assistance preparing letters to respond to a lawyer
- Offering self-help tools, legal information, websites and other resources
- Your responsibilities as an executor of an estate
- Preparing for mediation, hearings, pre-trial or trial, including how to address parties and how to organize written or verbal presentations
- Strategic guidance about dealing with the strengths and weaknesses of your case and any burden of proof you must meet
