Comments

Dignity, Honesty, Integrity, Creative Problem Solving, Complete and Unconditional Respect for All Participants, If Children are Involved Their Welfare is First Priority.... <br> <br>These words and phrases describe Collaborative Family Law and also describe my personal philosophy for how individuals and attorneys can best approach a family law dispute. I became a lawyer to help people; the Collaborative Process allows me to assist individuals to maximize their options and outcomes while maintaining their dignity and respect--for themselves, for the other parent or spouse, and for the legal process itself. Finally, individuals have a choice regarding the process used to resolve their family law dispute.
