COLLABORATIVE LAWWe are trained in Collaborative Law as the Financial Neutral. We help attorney's and their clients value the estate. We also provide creative financial solutions to assist the family as a whole while helping each side achieve an outcome that works for them.
How does it work?
This is a very structured process where professionals assist clients in interest-based negotiations. This provides the opportunity to jointly engage neutral professionals. The process is lawyer driven usually by attorneys who are collaboratively trained and focused. Each client will hire their own collaborative attorney. A financial neutral or mental health neutral may also be consulted as well as business valuators or other professionals as the attorneys see fit. This provides a private, structured environment where settlements can be crafted outside the restrictions of the court system. If the parties cannot reach an agreement, all the attorney’s must be let go and new attorneys are hired for divorce litigation.
How can we help?
