For some clients, dealing with the legal system is itself traumatic and can exacerbate the other traumas they are trying to process. The more we as lawyers can understand trauma and its effects on memory, cognition, communication, and relationships, the better equipped we will be to truly understand our clients’ complicated social and legal issues, and the more support we can give them in the short time we meet with them. If you are interested in learning more about trauma-informed lawyering, contact us at (403) 234-9266.
