I have historically approached my litigation practice in a collaborative manner, seeking to work with adversaries and their clients toward resolution in lieu of litigation. I have come to realize that our judicial system is ill equipped to help litigants resolve their divorce issues and that the system works against instead of with or for litigants. Divorce litigation is generally overly financially burdensome and overly emotionally devastating to the parties and their families. Our clients have personal problems that need resolution; litigation and resorting to the law and an adversarial system has not served divorcing couples well in helping to resolve those problems and issues. I strongly believe that Collaborative Law and mediation are far better mechanisms for resolution of issues in a divorce than our adversarial legal system.
