JDB 173: Joel Miller | The Family Law Coach – Building a Law Practice with Legal Coaching Services


During his 50 years of practicing family law Canadian attorney Joel Miller was aware of the large number of family law litigants that represented themselves in court, but it was only after he retired from the full time practice of law that Miller found a way to assist self represented individuals attempting to navigate the court system on their own.

Enter “The Family Law Coach,” an innovative approach adopted by Miller to assist those self-represented family law litigants who need a helping hand in navigating the court process.
