Untold Secrets of Collaborative Law
I recently attended a conference in Portland called, “Secrets of a Satisfying Family Practice”. The conference was attended by attorneys and mental health professionals committed to helping people through divorce without litigation. We learned all about collaborative law which involves bringing in professionals to help couples through the process in a constructive, non-hostile way. Professionals involved may include divorce coaches, accountants, child therapists, etc. I attended classes on how to work with other attorneys on cases specifically attempting to keep them non hostile.
It was a breath of fresh air to be with other committed professionals, who believe as I do, that there is a better way to take people through the divorce process!
With it being summer, I am reminded that I need to get outside and actually “feel” summer. I know some of you may be in the middle of a relationship breakdown and I would encourage you to walk outside and “feel” summer. Remind yourself of all the good things in your life. Through my conference, I was reminded how lucky I am to be able to be a peacemaker in the realm of divorce work. I believe passionately in the work I do and I was so happy to be in a conference with other like minded attorneys. Wishing you a great summer!
