Lawyer, Mediator

Calgary divorce lawyer, Beryl McNeill understands the often fearful, emotional early stages of divorce. Incorporating skills developed from her training as a life coach, Beryl helps divorcing and separating clients move beyond their stress response to more logical, creative thinking. Once there, she works with clients to discover what’s truly important to them in attaining divorce. Beryl encourages clients to picture what a successful settlement would look like a year or more down the road as a means for focusing their goals. By educating and empowering clients, Beryl seeks to transform the way they resolve family disputes—in a more constructive, intelligent and amicable way than would be possible otherwise.
