I am deeply committed to the practice of collaborative law and helping families maintain a healthy connection in a post-divorce family. This alternate dispute resolution model supports families through this difficult transition with dignity and respect as they negotiate towards settlement. This systemic model has the potential for world wide change in how people resolve their conflict. It is incredibly rewarding work to be on the journey with each family that I work with.
