Collaborative Law Section 

     The Collaborative Section had a great discussion in June about programming for next year.  There was a strong desire to learn more about Collaborative practice and get lots of practical tips and pointers. We hope you will join us for a year full of informative meetings.   Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, September 16, 2014 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. We’ll be talking about how to present dispute resolution process options to potential and new clients. How do you talk about Collaborative Law to a client who has never heard of Collaborative? How do you explain the difference between collaborative law, litigation, negotiation, and mediation? What questions can you ask to determine what dispute resolution process would be the most helpful to your client? Join us for an interactive discussion.

     Throughout the year, we will be exploring the stages of a collaborative law case: from enrolling the client to assembling the team to advocating without being positional to finalizing an agreement.  Each meeting includes time for networking and a light dinner provided by Realtor Jeanne Koerber of RE/MAX Town Center.
     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
