Collaborative Practice

Collaborative Family Law is a non-adversarial process focused on getting parties from dispute to resolution efficiently, and with as little financial and emotional damage as possible, while securing an agreement that addresses their true interests.

Three Defining Principles of Collaborative Law:

  • Clients and attorneys agree in advance they will not take any contested issue to court.
  • The process is “transparent.” Much of the work is done in four-way meetings with both clients and both lawyers present. Everyone agrees to informal exchanges of all relevant information.
  • Agreements are made through a process of “interest-based negotiation,” where participants are encouraged to find creative solutions that satisfy everyone.
