Dedicated to settlement of family disputes with dignity and integrity.

Collaboration is working with each other to achieve shared goals.  Collaboration means operating as a team to arrive at mutually agreeable outcomes.  Collaboration assures that the needs and interests of both sides of family disputes are respected and preserved.

Collaborative Practice” also known as “Collaborative Law” is a voluntary dispute resolution process in which parties settle their differences without resorting to litigation.  Collaboration is recognized worldwide as an effective and very successful alternative for couples preferring to resolve issues of separation and divorce without adversarial, prolonged, and unpredictable results in court.  Troubleshooting and problem solving are the ideals of the Collaborative Process, instead of fighting for the sake of winning:  which are all too common reactions whenever relationships are challenged.

Process + Method

The Collaborative Law process assures spouses and family members that conflicts over separation, divorce and other issues involving finances, children and relationships will be addressed, managed and resolved with privacy and integrity.
