Legal Coaching Services

Did you know that 50% of Nova Scotians self-represent in family court?

With Legal Coaching Services you can have confidence in representing yourself. You’ll have the benefit of our experienced negotiation and trial counsel advice, at half the price.

No retainer is required. We work on a “pay-as-you-go” model. This allows you to control your costs. You meet with our family lawyers and employment lawyer on dates and times that work for your schedule. We offer on-demand legal services. Work only with experienced negotiation and trial counsel. Get the legal advice you need at a price you can afford.

DIY Legal Coaching Services


With our legal coaching services, we draft all legal documents that you need to negotiate your divorce including the cover letter to the court under your signature. We do the heavy lifting.


Every family court hearing that you attend requires you to file a sworn statement—a document known as an “affidavit”. The affidavit is the most important and powerful document generated in a court proceeding. Judges base their decisions on the evidence they receive. The affidavit you prepare is your opportunity to give the judge the evidence needed to secure a favourable decision. Give yourself a legal edge by allowing one of our seasoned negotiators and trial counsel to write that affidavit for you.


Legal fees can be reduced by hiring one of our experienced negotiators and trial employment lawyers as a legal coach on the toughest human rights and termination issues.


Pursuing or defending a human rights complaint at the Canadian or Nova Scotia Human Rights Commissions can be difficult and expensive. Reduce your costs by hiring our lawyers to be your legal coach.


Ensure your court application is successful by having our trial lawyers review your applications with you in person, on the telephone, on video conference and in real-time.


Small Claims Court is the original DIY court. Claimants typically self-represent. Our coaches will work with you “behind the scenes” to work with you to prepare your strategy and ensure that you have collected the necessary evidence needed to make your case. Let us help you win your case. 


Legal fees can be reduced by hiring one of our senior lawyers as a legal coach. Available for both landlords, landladies and tenants.


Taking a will to probate can be expensive but necessary. Our legal coaches can reduce these costs and help you fill out the court’s paperwork.

What Legal Coaching Does Not Include

Teryl Scott Lawyers Inc. is committed to promoting “Access to Justice” for all Nova Scotians, even those unable to afford traditional legal services. Our legal coaching model for legal services assists those who prefer to represent themselves in court or to negotiate on their own behalf and for those who want to better control their legal budget. However, it is essential to understand what our legal coaching services include: we do not talk to judges, lawyers, or other parties. We do not represent you in court.
