Collaborative Divorce – Choosing the right lawyer

In initial consultations with clients I make sure to go over the different models of resolving a family law case.  These include:  collaborative divorce; mediation; traditional litigation; and a mix of these models.  It is crucial that clients understand the pros and cons of each model and that lawyers understand which model is right for the case and client. 

At the 2008 family law conference, a presenter, Forrest Monsten, a well respected mediator from California, said that he believes that it is malpractice for a lawyer to not address all of the avaiable ways to resolve a family law dispute with a client. 

If you would like more information on these different models, please contact Daniel Margolin or C. Sean Stepehns at Stephens & Margolin LLP so that they can address with you which model best fits your needs and wants.
