Collaborative Law & Mediation
Our attorneys are very experienced collaborative law professionals, who frequently lecture and teach collaborative law. They will ensure that you receive the best representation should you choose the collaborative process.
The Collaborative Process is an out-of-court conflict resolution process in which the participants focus their efforts on reaching a mutually acceptable resolution. It is a team-based approach that significantly changes the dynamics between clients and engages them outside of the courtroom in an open, supportive, lower-conflict process to find shared solutions. Principles of the Collaborative Process include: a promise to reach a resolution without court intervention or the threat thereof; a pledge that if either party seeks court intervention, both attorneys must withdraw from representation; a promise by all participants to negotiate in good faith by remaining open and flexible, disclosing all pertinent information and using constructive and respectful communication methods; and an agreement that all communications that occur during, as well as all documents prepared in connection with, the Collaborative Process are inadmissible in any future court proceedings.
