We do law differently. Serving Halifax, Bedford and Tantallon since 1995

Welcome to our Family Law

Lisa Teryl

We are lawyers who believe in access to justice for everyone. For more than 25 years we have been developing ways to improve the delivery of legal services. Here are some of the innovative solutions our firm offers:

  • Our flat-fee mediation programs allow you to get separated within three to five weeks (regardless of your level of conflict) and divorced shortly thereafter. Reduce the expense of your divorce, leaving more money to care for your family.
  • We provide “legal coaching” for those who would like to represent themselves. Let us help you draft your letters and affidavits under your signature. We are happy to share our knowledge!
  • And, our most popular innovation in 25 years: we provide pay-as-you-go services to manage your legal budget. No retainer required!

We do it differently. We are here for you.

Lisa was very professional and knowledgeable, overall, she made me feel her services were money very well spent. She helped me prepare my case in a way I would have never considered. I felt very supported the entire time and felt I had a worthy coach in my corner. What I thought was extremely difficult before was made so much easier and I came through more easily and quickly than I ever expected.
Lisa, thank you very much for your time and expertise.
