As a family lawyer, I have always been interested in a better way to resolve disputes between couples. I have been a mediator since 2003 and have enjoyed working with couples to develop creative agreements that are unique to their own family situation. I see Collaborative Law as a way to help more couples reach agreements in a cooperative environment rather than in a courtroom.
