I am a collaboratively trained lawyer practicing in Washington and Oregon.
Collaborative law allows family members in the midst of conflict to negotiate a settlement without going to court. Collaborative Law changes the culture of conflict resolution by allowing individuals to take control of their future as opposed to leaving decision–making about their lives to a judge. Take a look at this website for more information about collaborative law: http://www.collaborativepractice.com/
I am committed to peaceful conflict resolution for families in transition, as I have seen first-hand through my litigation practice the results of chronic conflict on children and adults alike.
