Divorce is often a difficult and painful process for all involved, especially for children. Litigation in a divorce usually escalates both the negative emotions and the financial costs. Collaborative divorce law is a process where both parties work together, rather than against each to resolve all of the issues in their dissolution of marriage or custody matters. The goal is to minimize the emotional and financial damage to parents and children by logically and rationally addressing problems unique to each situation in a calm and thoughtful manner. While David has successfully litigated hundreds of cases, he prefers the collaborative process and mediation as he believes this enables family members to work together more effectively after the divorce. David was a founder of the collaborative law process in Colorado and has successfully assisted more than 80 couples in resolving both financial and children’s issues using the collaborative law process.
