A Private, Respectful, Collaborative Divorce
Divorce and other family law disputes involve difficult legal, financial, and emotional issues. At the courthouse, judges must apply the same laws to all cases even though each family circumstance is unique. This often leads to inappropriate or unworkable outcomes. In the past, there was only the traditional adversarial court (litigation) method to resolve these disagreements. Now, there are more personalized legal processes for families going through these painful and life-altering transitions. They occur in private settings and involve people working collaboratively. This is where our practice comes into play.
