This workshop will present a model in which collaborative lawyers work with estate lawyers to design and implement plans to protect children’s inheritance upon the remarriage. This model is being utilized in the Hudson Valley by the presenters along with others, and is a natural extension of collaborative work with existing and new clients.
How do I get more Collaborative cases? It is not just about a marketing strategy, it is about how you engage with your potential clients from the first contact with your office. Participants will examine their current practices and learn how to approach an initial consultation from the client’s perspective so that clients leave feeling like the Collaborative process will provide them with the best option of navigating their life transition.
