A newcomer to the official practice of collaborative law, but with all the fervor and energy of a recent convert. I originally trained in Collaborative Practice to be able to help the movement spread in civil business disputes here in NC, but like the model so much (and feel that my skill set & training fit so well) that I am adding Collaborative Family Law to my practice.
