I believe that my clients and their families deserve a lawyer who listens closely, asks the right questions, and works tirelessly to exceed expectations. The high road is the best place to respectfully resolve family law disputes; it is my privilege to guide clients who want to walk this path. My clients and I set realistic goals, and use restraint and good judgment. We focus on interests rather than positions, considering all the options before moving forward.
We also utilize the collaborative process whenever possible, including in divorce, modification, and premarital agreements. It allows for customized co-parenting plans, transparent identification and valuation of assets, creative property division and support, and an atmosphere of confidentiality and respect.
Even if the collaborative process is not the right fit for a particular situation, my experience as a credentialed collaborative lawyer provides tools to resolve family law disputes outside the courtroom. Despite my strong commitment to the philosophy and practice of collaborative law, there are rare cases in which agreement is not possible. In these instances, I join forces with Goranson Bain Ausley's talented family law litigators.
