Innovation for Lawyers was created by Jacinta Gallant, a practicing lawyer with a rewarding and (mostly) enjoyable career in litigation and conflict resolution. Innovation for Lawyers aims to inspire, support and educate lawyers to rediscover and work with the vision and values that led them to law school. We develop content, tools and resources to help lawyers be more effective, engaged and happier at work.
Our first product is the Our Family in Two Homes Resource Package, a highly effective tool for collaborative family lawyers to use with their clients. In a marketplace that seems to despise “divorce lawyers”, this innovative product lets lawyers offer highly valued service and expertise where it is needed most, while supporting clients to make the best decisions for their future. Collaborative Lawyers around the world can license this product, customized for use in their legal jurisdiction.
Real discussions with real people, working real jobs and living real lives.
