About: The Collaborative Process is a fresh approach to those facing the prospect of divorce. Couples facing separation and divorce encounter many challenges, especially when children are involved. Parents must resolve important issues with significant thought to the after-effects. I help people resolve their disputes while keeping their personal and economic dignity intact. Using the resources available in the Collaborative Process, the couple can achieve lasting settlements with less stress and conflict for all of the parties, including the children.
The Collaborative Process is an alternate means for people to respectfully resolve disputes, particularly in divorce and family law. Unlike litigation, the Collaborative Process is private, cooperative, and efficient. It results in client-directed solutions rather than having a third party(Judge) make the decisions. Clients work to resole their concerns outside of court with the help of a team of collaboratively trained attorneys and other professional.
I have dedicated my practice to helping individuals in crisis to restructure their families as opposed to destroying them. By valuing the family unit, I encourage clients to pay close attention to not only the economic costs of divorce, but also non-economic/relational costs. I have over 37 years experience in family law. Each situation is unique and I strive to assist the clients to tailor the settlement to meet their family's needs.
