J. Michael Kaufman, JD (Attorney)

I have been exclusively practicing and litigating Family Law since 1993. I have seen the good, the ugly, and the uglier. It is my overwhelming experiance that those cases which are litigated through the Family Law Court are counter productive to the FAMILY UNIT. Litigants may not be husband and wife for much longer, but they will always be Mom and Dad and Grandma and Grandpa after that. Collaborative Law offers families a more dignified and respectful termination of their marriage. Familes, and especially the children, deserve a respectful and less destructive division of their family. I do not care what the situation, division of the family does not have to be ugly or cause collateral damage to the children! I am the product of divorced parents who did not involve their children in their divorce. There were no negative reprecussions to me or my siblings as a result of my parent's divorce. Termination of a marriage CAN happen in a dignified manner that is not damaging to the family. Most of the time a healthy parting of the ways between two unhappy spouses leads to a more healthy family unit. A healtier family unit is my ultimate professional goal!
