About AFLA

We are pleased to announce the recent formation of the Alberta Family Lawyers Association ("AFLA"). AFLA currently has 186 members.

Our current priorities are:

  1. To get Family Bar voices at the table with Legal Aid Alberta in relation to Certificate Management, Tariff Modernization and adequate funding for Family Coverage (contact Justine Fallu);
  2. To seek opportunities to collaborate with the Courts on procedures affecting the Family Bar (contact Moosa Jiwaji or Ashley Cox); and
  3. To speak out about the Family Bar's needs with various levels of Government related to funding (contact Wayne Barkaukas)

Through these initiatives we will strive to make our work as Family lawyers more efficient, cost-effective for the clients, and ensure access to justice is systemically facilitated within our specialized field. We are hopeful that AFLA will create an opportunity to fill in the gaps we see, to better serve our Family Law colleagues and clients at large.

While this page is hosted by FamilyCounsel as our interests align, AFLA is a separate organization.
