Collaborative law is a process to resolve disputes without going to court.
The Collaborative Law process was created by a long-time family lawyer named Stu Webb who became very dissatisfied with the adversarial and negative nature of the court process. He believed that most people really don’t want to go to court to solve their problems but didn’t know any other way to deal with their conflict. Does this sound familiar to you?
Collaborative Law offers people another option.
It is a process for resolving issues with the advice and assistance of lawyers but without going to court. All parties and their lawyers sign a contract agreeing not to go to court. They commit to work together in meetings in a non-adversarial, respectful way to find solutions that work for everyone involved in the conflict. This process is useful in all kinds of disputes, such as divorce, wills and estates, and business disagreements.
