algary Legal Guidance provides advice, representation, advocacy and support in the areas of criminal law, family law and domestic violence, landlord/tentant, homeless outreach, elder law, immigration law, social benefits and administrative law to people in Calgary who cannot afford a lawyer or have been denied by Legal Aid.
Originally from Nova Scotia, Helen embraced Calgary as her home when she relocated in 2003, despite continuing to pronounce words the “Maritime way”.
Helen has a degree in Psychology and a certificate in Forensic Psychology from Dalhousie University and is currently enrolled in a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology. This has fueled her interest in narcissistic personalities and how narcissists respond during the litigation process.
Helen uses a “carrot and stick” approach to family law, meaning that she utilizes the least adversarial approach possible first, keeping in mind that the parties may be forced to maintain a relationship after the legal issues have been resolved. However, in situations where a conciliatory style and mediation is ineffective, Helen is an effective litigator who advocates for her clients’ rights.
