About my Practice
I facilitate successful agreements. Examples include divorce agreements, parenting agreements, pre-nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, shareholder agreements, small business dissolution agreements and/or agreements regarding virtually any relational dispute or challenge within a family, a business, or an organization.
I have over 25 years experience resolving disputes and creating successful agreements through Collaborative Law, Mediation and Negotiation. I also have extensive experience in both Courtroom and Appellate Litigation.
Collaborative Law is generally quicker than Litigation, generally less expensive, results in a more durable agreement and honors the highest priorities of each individual. It is a less adversarial process in which the parties agree to resolve their dispute without going to court, yet each party remains fully represented by a trained Collaborative Attorney. The process supports all participants in maintaining dignity and respect for themselves and their families. As a skilled Collaborator with a Litigation background, I am able to recognize future potential pitfalls that can be addressed and eliminated using the Collaborative Law Process.
Mediation is effective for people who are able to articulate their own interests and priorities and at the same time be willing to respect the other party's concerns and consider alternative solutions. I have the ability to fully listen to each individual and facilitate a conversation that allows the parties to reach an agreement crafted by themselves and for themselves.
Litigation is expensive both monetarily and emotionally. It is rarely necessary; but when it is, you absolutely need an experienced and persistent litigator like me.
