Throughout the years I've attended continuing legal education classes on a regular basis. The classes have focused on all aspects of family law including collaborative law specifically, domestic violence, human relationships, parenting plans, asset and debt division, tax issues common to family law matters, division of retirement assets, mediation, trial practice, etc.
I also regularly attend collaborative law group meetings in King County where practitioners share ideas, provide educational speakers and strive to improve the practice of collaborative law in family matters.
