Comments

I have been practicing family law for over 20 years and collaborative law for 12 of those years. I have been trained in the interdisciplinary collaborative team divorce method and have worked on team divorce cases. THe collaborative process helps people make better decisions about their futures, create longer lasting and mutually acceptable settlements, and minimize the emotional and financial risks of divorce.
