As your Collaborative Lawyer, I act as your representative and advocate, and I help negotiate on your behalf in the Collaborative Process. A Collaborative Process is a uniquely structured negotiation process, where the sole focus is on helping you and your fiancé or spouse reach an agreement that works for both of you, in a supportive and cooperative way. A Collaborative Process takes place outside the courtroom, in joint, in-person meetings between you, your fiancé or spouse, and your Collaborative Professionals. One of the unique elements of a Collaborative Process is that both Collaborative Lawyers make a commitment not to represent you in court should you be unable to reach an agreement. A Collaborative Process is interdisciplinary in nature and, depending on your needs and preferences, can incorporate a neutral financial expert, divorce coach or child specialist. Once an agreement has been reached, your Collaborative Lawyer will work on your behalf, together with your spouse's Collaborative Lawyer, to draft a legal contract reflecting your agreement and file all necessary papers with the court.
