Family LawMediation

Attorney, State of Minnesota

I believe that our clients, and their children, are best served by attorneys who use their skills to solve problems. While it is true that the vast majority of litigation cases are settled prior to trial, I have found that much of my time, and my client's money, in litigated cases is spent preparing for the coming battle (trial). In litigation, settlement often occurs at the last minute as both sides fear the uncertain outcome of a trial. In a collaborative case my time, and my client's money, is spent using my knowledge and skills to help my client find solutions to the issues raised in the divorce. Since we are not preparing for a battle, or posturing to initimidate the opposing party/attorney, collaborative cases tend to be less time-consuming and less expensive than litigated cases.
