About Collaborative Law

Conflict doesn’t have to be destructive.  It doesn’t have to exhaust your resources to hire lawyers to fight against each other in court. You don’t have to give up control to lawyers and judges or have their decisions forced on you or your family.

In Collaborative Practice each of you has your own attorney to represent just you.  You gather the professional team that works for you to get the legal, financial and supportive help you need, when you need it.

In a Collaborative Divorce you work together to exchange information and ideas, create your plan for parenting (child custody and visitation), and make decisions on your new financial situation. It allows you to build on the care and concern that is there: for your children, for your family, and for yourselves.

Collaborative Law is also a productive approach to other civil disputes: challenges in your business and financial relationships; negotiating pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, disagreements in estate planning; probate and inheritance disputes.
