Consider adding Collaborative Law Services to your Practice
Professionals choose to learn the Collaborative Law Process because they see value in helping clients communicate and reach agreement as an alternative to the traditional adversarial approach to dispute resolution. Attorneys may be tired of supporting clients to fight and seek purpose in their practice that aligns with their values. Financial professionals like the idea of helping clients look to the future rather than dwelling on the past. Mental health professionals and coaches see value in starting a healing process at the outset rather than after more damage is done to the relationship.
If you’re ready to broaden your skill set and offer a very different approach for conflict resolution, discover Collaborative Practice. Professionals who train in Collaborative Practice often express that they seek less destructive solutions for clients in order to build a more fulfilling professional practice. The skills learned will lead to improved communication in your professional as well as your personal relationships.
What Is Collaborative Law?
It is an interest-based approach to conflict resolution. Teams of professionals work with clients to craft agreements which emphasize support for a broad range of needs and interests. Clients are encouraged to look beyond “entitlements” and open to options that serve all of the participants and their unique situation. The process requires skills that most don’t learn in their professional training.
How does Collaborative Divorce work?
Collaborative attorneys, financial neutrals and divorce coaches work together to support the participants’ desire to resolve their issues. At the outset, all agree to put 100% of their effort into reaching an agreed resolution. Clients are attracted to the process because they pledge not to threaten litigation as a strategy and instead, agree to use effective communication focused on problem solving. Parents appreciate the opportunity to focus energy in a way that feels less destructive of their co-parenting relationship as they transition to their two-home family.
