Good Reason to Think About Collaborative Divorces

Read Grand Rapids Collaborative Divorce Blog's To collaborate or litigate, that is the question for divorce lawyers. It is a bit long but the time will probably be well spent.

The American Bar Association is promoting one of its books with an excerpt that summarizes the movement toward Collaborative Law.

Excerpting from Collaborative Law: Achieving Effective Resolution in Divorce without Litigation, Second Edition, Pauline H. Tesler writes (excerpt):
Although switching to a collaborative law practice involves starting over, doing so is challenging, rewarding, prudent, and socially useful.

I am of the opinion that most lawyers would prefer collaborative divorce as the default option - if we can convince the clients that this is a good idea. Consider this part of my effort to educate the general public.

If you are an Indiana resident and need an attorney for your divorce, please give me a call.
