I have practiced exclusively in the area of family law for the past thirty years and have worked in the collaborative law group since the inception. It will be the client’s choice as to whether the collaborative process offers the best potential for a resolution. I am an advocate of the model because I find that an acceptable settlement is more likely to be reached when a husband and wife and their two lawyers are working together to find solutions. Generallly people are more motivated to reach settlement when they are actively involved in the problem solving process. Collaborative law allows more opportunity for creative agreements and styling an outcome that is needed for each person to feel satisfied.
Member of Collaborative Law Group since inception.
