The Goodlawyer Story

Do good. Don't just be good. but do good... because the world needs more of it.

Brett Colvin — CEO and Co-founder

Good things start small

When Brett was working at one of Canada's largest law firms as a corporate lawyer, he saw first hand every day that most people can't afford the legal help they need. The typical firm rates are simply out of reach. So he teamed up with a developer and a designer, left the firm, and started Goodlawyer.

What we're about

At Goodlawyer, we want to help more entrepreneurs succeed (and solo lawyers are entrepreneurs, too). But we’re about more than just competent legal work. We’re about making the entire experience less stressful and, dare we say, enjoyable.

By leveraging technology, we make it faster, easier, and more affordable for you to get the legal help you need. And by having a network that's over 50% women and over 40% BIPOC, Canadian entrepreneurs can get help from a community that's as diverse as they are.

Good teams do great things

The Goodlawyer office is located on the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.  

Beyond Treaty 7 territory, we recognize that our platform facilitates work across the land we now call Canada. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we are residing on or visiting.
