Collaborative Law

Collaborative law professionals recognize that, while a marriage may be ending, the relationship and obligations continue.  The collaborative process replaces court drama with a system that takes control of the outcome away from a judge and puts it back into the hands of the couple.  Couples customize a settlement that best fits their goals and family circumstances.  The process is designed to balance the power between the couple and protect the rights of each individual.

Collaborative Law is an approach to helping divorcing couples achieve settlement without going to court.  Our firm works in concert with a community of legal, financial and mental health professionals to create a client-centered process for resolving conflict.  The group works as a team to give clients the resources they need to understand the choices available to them to formulate a constructive plan.  The process enables them to be completely forthcoming and creative in a safe environment.  The discussions and negotiations are  confidential.

What’s in Collaborative Law for you?

  • Privacy, confidentiality, mutual respect and dignity.
  • Surprises to a minimum.
  • Meetings, with defined agendas, are coordinated in advance.
  • Your team is fully invested in settlement, committing to an out-of-court resolution.
  • Often much faster and more cost-efficient than the traditional court system model.
  • Clients control outcomes, not a judge.
  • You are empowered to make the best long-term decisions for your family.
  • A family-centered process which minimizes disruption and trauma, especially for children.
  • Development of support resources, coping strategies and communication skills.
