Collaborative Law Section 

     The Collaborative Law Section is planning to spend this year exploring the stages of a collaborative law case: from enrolling the client to assembling the team to advocating without being positional to the first team meeting.
     October 21st meeting: Assembling your Collaborative Team, Talking to the other Attorney, Advocating without being Positional. 
     Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings – especially practitioners who are new to Collaborative Law. You do not need to be a member of our Section or collaboratively trained to attend. All of our meetings are very interactive with plenty of time to answer individual questions.
     RSVPs are appreciated but not required to Joan Weiss at
     Also, the Collaborative Law Section and the Maryland Collaborative Practice Council (MCPC) are co-sponsoring "Breaking Down Barriers to Support: How a Cohesive Collaborative Team Can inspire New Thinking" on Friday, October 10, 2014 from 8:30am to 3:30pm at the Bar Headquarters, 27 West Jefferson Street, Rockville, Maryland. The cost of the program is $95 (payable to MCPC).
     Participants will learn a new approach to helping clients in the Collaborative process resolve the hardest financial issues, including alimony, budgeting and payment for child expenses including:
     • How and when to talk to clients about their thoughts and feelings about money
     • Marital dynamics and roles pertaining to money and the impact on the Collaborative process
     • How to frame financial issues so they are about solving issues vs. blame
     • How to maximize the use of coaches and financial neutrals in financial conversations and process
