HOME >  PHILOSOPHY

I strongly believe the collaborative law process is the best way for most couples to transition to the next phase of their life if divorce is the path that they must choose.

- Leslie Dolliver

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


- Robert Frost, "The Road Not Taken"

Regarding All Matters

I believe that when we are given a blessing whether it is a wonderful child or a mineral interest from a grandparent, God expects us to be a good steward of that blessing. Yes, stewardship requires a little work, but when we do our best to raise our children, they end up doing the same when they raise our grandchildren. Likewise, if we receive a mineral lease offer in the mail, we should do our homework and make sure we get the best deal possible since the lease may outlast us all.

Regarding Family Law Matters

I choose to take only collaborative divorce cases for these reasons:

  1. The parties control the decisions.
  2. Parties maintain their privacy as a result of the contractual agreement to NOT take any contested matter to court. This is particularly important for many with the recent rise in identity theft. Court records are public records. Choosing the collaborative approach protects parties from having very private information go public.
  3. The parties and team members control the schedule of meetings. This works better not only for my client's family, but for mine as well.
