Thank you to those who joined us in May for the Strike the Right Bargain mini-workshop with Izolda Trakhtenberg.  You may contact her at for a copy of her book, Speak From Within: Engage, Inspire, and Motivate Any Audience.

We want to express a sincere thank you to Jeanne Koerber of RE/MAX Success, who has been a longtime supporter of our Section.  We thank you for your generosity in sponsoring numerous lunch meetings over the past several years.  We also look forward to a new era next bar year, as we are formally avowing our commitment to our local communities by partnering with the BAMC Alternative Dispute Resolution Section to establish the BAMC ADR & Collaborative Law Section.  Together, we will educate the public and create CLEs designed to serve the Members of BAMC and the Montgomery County community.

Our section has worked this bar year to educate the public about Collaborative practice and support collaborative attorneys who practice civil and domestic law so they can offer this valuable form of legal services to more clients within our communities.  We welcome your suggestions about discussion topics and future speakers at our meetings, CLEs, and roundtable discussions on managing, marketing and growing a Collaborative Law practice.  Please reach out to any of your Co-Chairs if you want to get involved in Collaborative practice and inform our communities about the benefits of Collaborative Law and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

For more on Collaborative Practice:
Please contact LJ Pelham at 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.  To learn more about how to provide Collaborative legal and related services to your clients, please visit:
