Collaborative Family Law
The Collaborative Family Law process involves the specialized knowledge of lawyers, mediators, and financial professionals to solve marital disputes without using adversarial techniques and litigation. The attorneys involved in the process pledge in writing not to litigate, negotiate in good faith, and work together with the husband and wife to achieve mutual settlement outside the courts. As a result, if a settlement is not reached in the Collaborative Family Law process, we will withdraw from the process and not participate in the subsequent litigation.
As a Financial Professional and Certified Florida Supreme Court Family Mediator we are uniquely suited to assist attorneys in both aspects of the Collaborative process.
