Comments: After many years of practicing law, I truly believe that collaborative law provides the best means of conflict resolution available. It has completely changed my approach to clients, to the practice of law, and to my collaborative colleagues. Collaborative law offers the best opportunity for attorneys to help clients resolve their difficulties in a calm, thoughtful and sane manner and to regain control of their lives.
