As a founder of our local collaborative practice group and a matrimonial attorney since the early 1980’s, I regard collaborative practice as the answer to my dreams of a better way for handling matrimonial cases, and also a tacit acknowledgement that our traditional legal system has left much to be desired in the way of accommodating the real world of emotions and personal needs of divorcing people. Collaborative practice has been as liberating for me as a lawyer as it has been good for my clients and their families. The interdisciplinary model, which our practice group follows, is a supportive and efficient team approach to resolving divorce problems. I look forward to collaborating with you and for you.
