WHY INTEREST-BASED NEGOTIATIONS ARE A CORNERSTONE TO COLLABORATION

What are “interest-based negotiations,” and how can they help divorcing couples in the collaborative divorce process?

THE GOOD LAWYER, THE JUNKYARD DOG, AND WHY COLLABORATIVE MAY JUST BE YOUR ANSWER

When spouses are divorcing, the best course of action they can take from the very beginning–a decision that can shield their family from potential unnecessary destruction–is to hire the right divorce attorney. No matter how hurt, angry, or miserable a client might be, resisting the urge to “stick it to their ex” by hiring a “junkyard dog” attorney can save not only countless dollars but future relationships. Secondly, if divorcing spouses can choose collaborative law instead of litigation, they stand to avoid a contentious battle and set themselves up for better communication once the papers are signed.
