Comments: I've been practicing family law for fourteen years, initially focusing on divorce litigation. Having directly witnessed the trauma associated with litigated divorces, I developed a strong interest in the Collaborative Divorce model, which has been implemented in many other states - and I decided to focus my efforts on bringing the Collaborative Divorce framework to Washington State. For Washington State residents, Collaborative Divorce is now a well-established viable alternative to litigated (adversarial) divorces. As the founder of the Collaborative Divorce movement in Washington State, I have strong experience working within the Collaborative model - which I believe to be a dramatically better framework for divorce, in terms of emotional and financial cost - as well as long-term satisfaction with the settlement provisions. The process scales very well for any estate size.
