Since year 2000 when I took my first training in collaborative law, I’ve been doing collaborative law cases ever since then. Collaborative law actually takes additional training by an attorney. It’s a different way of thinking. It’s not something they taught us in law school. You have to be able to let go, train and work with your client from behind and not take over the case. Because it’s not your case to take over.
I have not only been doing cases, I also have been training other attorneys as well as other professionals such as CPAs, counselors, and things like that that get involved in the collaborative case. And I’ve been doing these trainings for probably over ten years.
