After working with a Collaborative Family Lawyer during the summer of my first year of law school, I was sold on the process.  It just works.  Husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, move through the process in a supportive environment, with trained professionals leading the way.  Lives which are falling apart are put back together and everyone leaves the process with more of their money and more of their sanity.  Come and talk to me about whether a collaborative divorce or separation is right for you.
