With more than fifteen years of experience as an effective trial attorney, I know how a courtroom works. I also know that a courtroom is not the place to decide how to protect what matters most to you in a divorce.
Over twelve years ago, Collaborative Divorce became a North Carolina family law legal statute. As one of the first attorneys in the state to practice this powerful alternative to litigation, and as a Board Certified Specialist in Family Law, I am among the most experienced Collaborative Divorce attorneys in North Carolina.
The results I seek to achieve as an effective divorce law attorney are framed by my commitment to helping clients end their marriages with dignity, not drama, and in my belief that Collaborative Divorce can help realize this goal. I use my knowledge of the law, experience as an expert in collaborative divorce, as well as my passion for insulating children from conflict in connection with divorce, as the basis for my approach to realizing results.
I have chosen to restrict my family law practice to Collaborative Divorce, because I firmly believe that in most cases it is the best way that I can help you protect your interests, reach your goals and achieve what’s important to you.
During our initial consultation, I will listen to fully understand your unique circumstances. I will also outline all of the legal options available to you. If you chose Collaborative Divorce, which is a non-court option, I will provide you with information to help encourage your spouse to work with a family law attorney with extensive experience in Collaborative Divorce.
Even if you and your spouse aren’t on good terms, if safeguarding your children is your shared concern, then Collaborative Divorce is likely an effective way to end the marriage while protecting what matters most.
The North Carolina Guide to Collaborative Divorce Proceedings, published by Springfield Collaborative Divorce, explains and illuminates the divorce laws in North Carolina that govern Collaborative Law Proceedings.
The Guide is intended to aid in understanding this legal alternative to court proceedings. It offers guidance as to when this alternative makes sense for couples in North Carolina who desire a method of divorcing that encourages cooperation instead of confrontation, and creates an environment in which couples can divorce with dignity and display respect, integrity, and kindness toward each other.
