Mark sees the need for an alternative to litigating sensitive family issues in court, where both the emotional and economic costs can be overwhelming. Mark has become actively involved in Collaborative Law and Collaborative Divorce and recognizes the collaborative process as a viable alternative to litigation in resolving disputes. Mark is limiting his matrimonial practice to only representing divorce clients within the Collaborative Process and Mediation.
