Cincinnati Divorce Lawyer
A Passion for Family Law for Nearly 35 Years
There are times in life when we are struck by a sudden insight that says "You have learned. You have grown. Now is the time to make a positive change based on years of experience and a lifetime of knowledge." This insight may lead to a change that is difficult for others to understand even as we know that, in time, and with caring help, they will.
I am Maury White, and in 2008, I was struck with such an insight. Since 1978, I had followed my passion of helping families through the divorce process. I'd carefully helped hundreds of couples and families and was skilled both at 1) facilitating solutions through the thoughtful pursuit of compromise and mutual understanding, and 2) at aggressively litigating for clients in court.
By 2008, it became fully clear. The vast majority of my cases that resulted in positive outcomes for both spouses and for their minor children came out of the Collaborative Law Process. Since then I have chosen to resolve clients' marital differences exclusively through Collaborative Law and, when appropriate, through mediation.
Collaborative Law Reduces Conflict and Focuses on Your Best Result As YOU Define It
Take it from an experienced family law litigator: divorce litigation brings anger, hatred, regret, pain and the destruction of relationships, including parents' relationships with their children.
Do you remember those moments in your marriage when your anger melted away and you suddenly felt you understood your spouse's frustrations, if only for a moment? Through the Collaborative Law Process you can protect your interests while seeking an understanding of the emotions that may be currently leading you into a long and painful battle that ends with no one winning.
Why Choose Me as Your Collaborative Law Attorney?
Once you decide to investigate or pursue a family law solution through the Collaborative Law process, you'll need to choose an attorney. I have won numerous awards and distinctions; in addition to my more than nearly 35 years of experience:
- I have served in many leadership roles in the Collaborative Law community
- I am one of only 106 attorneys in Ohio who are designated by the Ohio State Bar Association as a Certified Family Relations Law Specialist
- I am the only Certified Specialist with an office in the Butler/Warren county area
Mediation May Be the Right Choice for You
In addition to my role as a Collaborative Law practitioner, I am also available to serve as an impartial family law mediator. In mediation, I assist you and your spouse in negotiations in an attempt to settle the case. In this role, I do not represent either party or give legal advice. Rather, I act as a facilitator, suggesting creative solutions to issues. Like Collaborative Law, mediation puts you in control of your own outcome and often reduces animosity.
