The focus of my practice for the last 35 years has been Family Law. In addition to my litigation practice I served as substitute Judge in the district court system and as a Judge Pro Tempore in the circuit court system. However, since I discovered the Collaborative Process, I am focusing my practice on helping families to restructure by using this client centered process. I am also, very excited to be part of CPTI, LLC, Collaborative Practice Training Institute, a group of collaborative professionals whose mission is to train other professionals in the Collaborative Process.
