My professional life became transformed when I learned about Collaborative Pratice. I realized that rather than being part of a system that often further damages family relationships, I could be part of a restorative system. The Collaborative process helps couples and families transition to their new configuration and pays attention to family relationships by creating enduring and lasting agreements that work for both parties and their children. My practice is focused primarily on Collaborative family law, mediation, and cooperative settlement, as well as estate planning and appellate work. I provide a one hour consultation at no cost, often with both parties, to discuss their options and inform them about the value of using the Collaborative process.
