Calgary Legal Guidance

For community and social agencies, CLG provides
education and presentations for both your organization or your clients.

Social Benefits Advocacy Program

CLG’s Social Benefits Advocacy Program (SBAP) offers information, advice and guidance to those facing challenges with the Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) Program. We can help with many issues including benefit denials, cut-offs and assessed overpayments. We may even be able to represent people at appeal. If you are interested in a presentation to your agency, please contact us at (403) 234-9266.

Trauma-Informed Lawyering

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.
