Collaborative Services


While litigation is very much a part of my practice, I have always enjoyed mediation and negotiations much more. I find that these types of resolutions in family law cases get both people closer to what they want to achieve than anything that a court can do. There is definitely a time and a place for litigation, but I believe that many cases never need to see the inside of a courtroom. Collaborative Law allows more flexibility than other choices of litigation alternatives, and allows the people at the heart of the matter to make creative decisions that will work best for them and their families. I believe that being in control of such decisions is best for a changing family dynamic and allows the parties to move forward with their lives feeling that they had control over the outcome of this very difficult time in their lives.
