Collaborative Law Section
Our Bar Association’s 122nd Annual Meeting and Law Day Celebration will have taken place by the time you read this article. Can you believe it? Time does fly by faster than we can imagine. Hopefully, the speakers and the educational programs which were presented during this bar year benefitted your practice. We wish to take this opportunity to thank those who set aside other important activities and took the time to give presentations at or attended our Section meetings. We are, especially, thankful to leaders of our Collaborative Community, such as Steve Weisbaum, Suzy Eckstein, Craig Strent and Dr. Mary Atwater for their presentations and invaluable contributions to the growth of our Section. We are equally thankful to our generous sponsor, Jeanne Koeber, for sponsoring all of the dinners served at our Section meetings. The Divorce Roundtable of Montgomery County will present a Conference on When Parents Part (Protecting Children’s Mental Health and Well-Being in Separation and Divorce), from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, May 13, 2016 at The Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, Maryland. Please, visit www.divorceroundtable.org for more details.
Our next Section meeting will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 and one of the leaders of our Collaborative community, Dr. Mary Atwater, will give a presentation on “How the Ladder of Inference Can Soften "Impasse" and Bring Each Client a Greater Understanding of the Other Party’s Perspective”. With this bar year at an end, the presentation will help us to better assess, prepare and help our clients avoid impasse in future cases. We invite you to take some time to attend our Section meeting this month. Attendance by a diverse audience, consisting of relatively more experienced and relatively less experienced practitioners, will lead to a vigorous exchange of ideas during the question and answer session. Please, invite your friends, associates, mentors and mentees to the meeting. We also welcome your comments and suggestions about potential co-chairs, presentation topics and your preferred meeting day of the week. This is your opportunity to re-invigorate our Section, change our meeting day of the week to one that works best for you. Once again, thank you for your support and contributions to the growth of our Section this bar year. Please RSVP in advance at: Eshigo or Eric.
