2011 was a great year for our Legal Advice Clinic, graciously funded by the Alberta Law Foundation.  Since October we have added one more Family Law Clinic per month to help meet the need of women in Calgary. The year 2012 will open with two Non-Family and five Family Legal Advice Clinics every month.

This year we saw over 200 women in 63 clinics. In the past 12 months, 15 dedicated volunteer lawyers have been a big help for all the women accessing the clinics.

Some clinic highlights:

· In 2011, 209 women received free Legal Advice.

· 99% of women who attended the clinics felt the lawyer listened to them carefully and that  the lawyer understood their situation.

· 98% know what their next step will be.

· 100% would recommend the Legal Advice Clinic to a friend

Here’s what women wrote about our lawyers:

She is a compassionate lawyer who understood my situation and gave me

appropriate advice”

Gave me confident steps to move forward. Thank you.”

Excellent information and suggestions and additional resource information specific to my situation. “

“Lawyer was really sympathetic to my needs and to the situation, very helpful”

Thank you so much for your continued support!

  1. Hi my name is Patricia Boyle. I have a family law case. I really need a lawyer. I need some legal guidance, legal advice, a legal representative. When is your next thing to talk to somebody about this? If someone could call or email me and let me know that would be great. If I need an appointment, I am available anytime/anyday. Just leave me a message if I miss your call and tell me what time and day and address and I will be there. Thank you so much.
