To transform Dispute Resolution from an adversarial process to a synergistic and wholistic process amongst attorneys, professionals and, most importantly, our communities.
To Promote the power of Collaborative Practice for dispute resolution as an alternative to litigation.
Compassion, Fairness, Integrity, Synergy, Pragmatism, Creativity, & Transparency.
Collaborative Practice began in the late 1980s and has spread across the United States, Canada, and internationally. Although it has primarily developed in the field of family law, Collaborative Practice has expanded into other areas of law such as probate and general civil practice.
Because these disputes are legal in nature, clients will need Collaborative attorneys as part of their team. Clients continue to build their team by adding appropriate non-legal professionals: typically parenting and communications coaches, neutral financial professionals, and neutral child specialists. Clients may add other professionals as needed, such as vocational and real estate experts.
