Collaborative Law

Collaborative law is a new, and fast growing, method by which couples involved in a family law dispute can resolve their differences without ever going to court.

Most people do not want to spend a significant part of the wealth they have accumulated to get a divorce. They also do not want to have a long and bitter fight with their spouse.

People want to move on with their lives as quickly as possible, if an acceptable settlement can be reached. If you are one of these people, collaborative law could be the right choice for you.

Litigation is expensive, both financially and emotionally. The outcome of a trial is always unknown until it is over because people are giving up control to a stranger, the judge.

By choosing the collaborative model, the couple, not the lawyers or judges, maintain control of the outcome.
