Lawyer

'Never cut what you can untie.'

That sentiment by the French writer Joseph Joubert expresses my philosophy toward inter-personal relationships. I view myself as a problem-solver. The Collaborative Process is the best tool I have discovered for that goal. It recognizes that, in a divorce, it is your family and your future that is involved and that you and your spouse are in the best position to make sound, mutually beneficial choices.

License(s): Virginia State Bar ~U.S. District Court, W.D. of Virginia ~Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

Comments

I first took training in Collaborative Law in 2001 when the benefits of the process to the client and myself became obvious. I joined the Collaborative Professionals of Roanoke in 2007. My passion is to bring this wonderful concept to my part of the world (termed 'back of beyond' by an award-winning local author) before too many more families are unnecessarily destroyed by a needlessly acrimonious parting of ways.
