The Collaborative Law Process and Mediation are designed to help resolve conflict through education, direct dialogue and negotiation. My 36 years of combined experience in the courtroom, in business, and with the Mediation and Collaborative processes will help you evaluate all of your options. I believe it is important for you to understand your lawyer’s role, as well as the law, before you get involved in any divorce process. Couples can take positive and constructive steps to avoid the destruction, animosity and regret which often accompanies the typical high conflict divorce. My goal is to help clients avoid any unnecessary waste of time, energy and money and to concentrate on creating options for the future.
