REPRESENTATION

As your Representative, I advocate for you in an out-of-court negotiation concerning a prenup, postnup or separation/divorce. My work with you occurs entirely out of court, and my focus is to help you reach an optimal agreement with your fiancé or spouse. I ensure that you understand your present situation, the relevant law, and your legal options. Within that context, we identify and negotiate an agreement that best meets your needs. Once an agreement has been reached, your spouse or fiancé’s attorney and I will draft a legal contract reflecting your agreement and file any necessary papers with the court.

In contrast to the Collaborative Process, when I work as your Representative, negotiations take place primarily in writing and over the phone between the attorneys, and less in the joint, in-person meetings that are the hallmark of a Collaborative Process.

Many of the clients who hire me as their Representative are in the following situation. They would like their negotiation process to be as collaborative and non-destructive as possible. Mediation is not an option because they prefer to negotiate with an attorney present, and Collaborative Law is not an option because their fiancé's or spouse's attorney is not collaboratively trained. For clients in this situation, hiring me as their Representative provides the security of having an attorney present to support them, and the assurance that the substance and style of the negotiations will remain as collaborative and settlement-focused as possible.
