CPSMC has presented trainings about collaboration to our members and to other professionals from around the state. We meet every other month to discuss and resolve group management issues; we meet in the intervening months to discuss individual case successes and difficulties and to assist each other in refining our individual skills. In addition to family law cases, individual members are beginning to apply their collaborative skills to cases to business and probate matters.
The local court has endorsed the expansion of Collaborative Practice to a great extent. In fact, family law litigants must routinely file a pleading that requires them to acknowledge the availability of Collaboration in their county. Many of our members no longer pursue litigation cases in the family law area, preferring to limit their practices to ADR, particularly collaboration.
