About Us

Family Law Exclusive

We limit our practice exclusively to family law because we strive to be the most knowledgeable and informed in our field.

Narrowing our activity ensures we have a continuous pulse on the latest trends, precedents, and case law, and are at the forefront of new developments in family law.

Evolve Law offers all of our services unbundled, which means we work on a flat fee system and not an hourly billing system.

Evolve Law places an emphasis on integrating technology into our practice to provide a more efficient and client-centered experience.

Evolve Law is anything and everything family law related.

Our Saskatoon Family Lawyers

Families come to us when most vulnerable, entrusting us to protect the interests of their family, no matter form or state. For us to be open, and in a sense vulnerable, with our fees seems like a fair request we commit to deliver.

Beau Atkins
Founder - Lawyer

Beau Atkins is the founder of Evolve Family Law and one of it’s lawyers. After his own frustrating journey navigating the family justice system, Beau leveraged technology and prioritized it’s weaving into all firm processes, law and business alike, to better serve both his clients and the public.

Beau’s unapologetic push towards flat-rate billing and the unbundling of legal services further supports his efforts. Bonus Fact: He speaks fluent Spanish.

Beau's Story

“Just f#$%ing leave!” I shouted at my dad during one of his many fights with my mom. This one was particularly bad, sounding like it might get physical (even though they never had before). The eldest of three boys, I was just 14-years-old. It wasn’t for about 25 years until I discovered the childhood trauma that and my parents’ divorce scarred me with. It scarred me and my younger brothers. Just over a decade later, it was as if history was repeating itself as I experienced my own divorce from my son’s mom in my last year of law school. That, too, I now realize caused trauma I carried into my professional career. 

Now, over a decade of practice as a family law lawyer, I fully appreciate the anxiety, uncertainty and unpredictable path separation and divorce can have. Separating spouses are often the worst version of themselves. Unknowingly and certainly unintentionally, they inflict harm on their children which will traumatize them into adulthood. 

 In 2020, I founded Evolve Law. The goal was to do things a little different. We established flat-rate services, structured payment plans, and created workflows to help us better focus on moving people smoothly towards resolution. I am proud of the team we have, each with specific roles designed to efficiently and effectively navigate separating spouses through their separation. Helping people separate smoothly and in a way that minimally affects their children has become my obsession. I look forward to speaking with each new client to see how we might be able to support them in their journey.
