What is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative law is a dispute resolution process, facilitated by trained lawyers who assist participants in resolving conflict using cooperative strategies rather than adversarial techniques. Through a series of group meetings, lawyers and participants focus on identifying underlying interests, generating solutions that meet them.  Collaborative Family Law participants agree to negotiate an agreement without going to court.
