accord | ə.'koɹd | to be in agreement or harmony

Accord Family Law’s mission is to provide uncomplicated and affordable access to family law for amicable families in Alberta.  If you already agree on the terms of your separation or unification, you shouldn’t have to worry about hourly rates or drawn-out legal processes that result in unpredictably high costs, both financially and emotionally, to you and your family.  Our clients benefit from our Flat Fees to provide certainty in costs and use of convenient remote meetings.

We strive to keep our clients and their families out of the courtroom, whether that means:

REACTIVELY

By completing and filing all of your Joint Divorce or Uncontested Divorce documents on your behalf,
so you’re not stressed, confused, and standing in line at the court filing desk.

OR

PROACTIVELY

By creating strong Prenuptial Agreements (married) or
Cohabitation Agreements (common law) to hold up in the future. 

AND

COMPREHENSIVELY 

 By offering estate planning (Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Personal Directives) and residential real estate services (buying or selling your home) to protect you and your family’s futures as you see fit, before it’s too late.

About Me

Reena Herian, B.A., LL.B., PM 

I’m a family lawyer with over 10 years of varied legal experience and I’m tired of seeing low or no-conflict families paying too much for family law services that take too long and get too contested in a highly adversarial court system. 

There has to be a better way.  Families should have complete control over their futures.

So I founded Accord Family Law.  Through reasonable flat fees, convenient remote meetings, and supporting families that want (or need) to stay on good terms, it’s time to bring family law into the 21st century in Alberta.

I’ve practiced corporate, real estate and immigration law, but family law is where my heart is because it’s about finding the best, practical solution for each individual family and doing right by their kiddos.  I’m dedicated to improving access to justice by giving my clients control over their issues through understanding and setting out clear options to reach affordable solutions.

After completing my Bachelor of Arts with a major in political science and a minor in history at the University of Alberta, I moved to the middle of England to study law at the University of Birmingham.  Then I worked at a large corporate firm in London before returning to Canada where I completed my articles at another large corporate firm in Edmonton.  In addition to practising family law, I’ve practiced estate and real estate law and advised the Minister of Community and Social Services.

Giving back is crucial to me – for every 20 hours I work, I volunteer 1 hour of my time at the Edmonton Community Legal Centre, where I give free family law advice to low-income Albertans.
