ADR-COLLABORATIVE LAW Section
Our next brown bag meeting is on Tuesday, October 15th with guest speakers Nicole Harrison and Lindsay Carter from Financial Advantage Associates, Inc. Their presentation will focus on tips for attorneys in issue spotting with respect to financial disputes and property valuation in family law cases. Nicole and Lindsay are collaboratively trained and have expertise in their fields and are well-versed in collaborative practice.
Ken Vogel, Esq. will be our primary presenter this bar year at our CLE, Inside the Mind of the Mediator, please look for those details to come via email and on the BAMC website.
Our Section will work this bar year to educate community members about Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) including Mediation and Collaborative practice. We strive to support Attorneys so they can offer these valuable forms of legal services to more clients. Informational handouts have been made available to the public in both Montgomery County Courthouses. We welcome your suggestions about discussion topics and future speakers at our meetings, CLEs, and roundtable discussions. Please reach out to any of your Co-Chairs if you want to get more involved with our Section or ADR and Collaborative practice to inform our communities about the many benefits of utilizing these process options to resolve their disputes out of court.
For more on Collaborative Practice:
Please contact LJ Pelham at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in taking advantage of upcoming collaborative training opportunities and incorporating collaborative law into your civil practice.
Collaborative Law is interdisciplinary and can incorporate the advice and counsel of civil practitioners, child specialists, financial neutrals, business valuation specialists, mental health professionals, real estate agents and more into the dispute resolution process. It encourages two or more disputing parties to engage in candid and effective out-of-court communications and empowers them to find their own voices to craft voluntary, durable and mutually beneficial solutions.
