I believe that there are better ways for families to solve the problems which divorce places on their doorstep. After thirty years of litigation experience, I have now, for the past 10 years, limited my practice to the Collaborative Process and Mediation. I believe in helping families find better ways to transition. Divorce litigation too often brings further harm. The Collaborative Process and Mediation help parents avoid the destruction, animosity and regret traditional litigation can bring. My goal is to help my clients avoid wasting time, energy and money in the court system and concentrate on creating options for the future.

Comments: My law practice is dedicated to giving clients control over the outcomes of their divorce. My clients choose the Collaborative Law Process and resolve their conflicts through education, direct dialogue and negotiation. My 40 years of combined experience in the courtroom, in business, and mediation/Collaborative practice assist my clients evaluate consequences in light of the law. I have lectured on Collaborative Law and conflict resolution; and, many of the articles I have written inform my clients about the role of lawyers, and the law, in the divorce process. In 2013, my efforts to ensure passage of the Ohio Collaborative Family Law Act made Ohio one of only 8 states with Collaborative Law legislation.
