About You

  • A divorcing couple arguing about custody, property and finances.
  • A same gender couple divorcing their California or out-of-state marriage or domestic partnership.
  • Parents, married or unmarried, needing to make decisions about their children.
  • Siblings arguing about elder care decisions or an inheritance.
  • Business partners arguing about labor and management decisions.
  • Family members arguing about family business succession or trust matters
  • Landlords and tenants arguing about repair bills.
  • Neighbors arguing about noise and boundaries.

Each of these, and other kinds of conflicts too, can lead to expensive and time-consuming legal battles. Or they can be handled collaboratively. Collaborative Practice is a new way to resolve conflicts in a respectful and mutually agreed upon process. Rather than turning the decision-making power over to a judge or other third party, control of the collaborative solution is kept with the people directly involved in the dispute. When issues about children are part of the dispute, their needs are placed first. Clients and their attorneys are at the heart of a working team which often includes mental health, financial and other professionals as needed to provide information and help clients explore a variety of solutions. The clients don`t sign a settlement agreement until each of them is comfortable with it.
