Collaborative for 80% of Divorce Cases

Collaborative law is great for parents that are in that eighty percent. The great thing about collaborative law is that as soon as you are hired in a case the attorneys agree “we’re not going to trial”. It’s their signed agreement. So one hundred percent of your effort is actually put towards settling the case. Where as in a litigated case, I spend a lot of my time getting ready for a trial that will only happen twenty percent of the time. But with that eighty percent that don’t go to trial, the collaborative law process is very good for those families, especially the ones that have a need for a future relationship. And that’s where you’ve got children, or in some cases, people have a need to continue the relationship because they have a family owned business or something like that, that they are going to continue to be involved with. That’s where collaborative law is really a good option.
