I am a Collaborative Family Lawyer and mediator. I am very active in the CCRE and intend to continue to participate and encourage others to do so. <br> <br>It is my firm belief that all professionals have an opportunity and duty to advance their fields in the collaborative means of resolving differences. It is only through our individual and group efforts and actions that we can ever hope to influence world peace processes. This is an integral part of my commitment to the Collaborative practice.
