Collaborative Law Section
Please, RSVP for section meetings to:
Our next meeting will be held on February 19th at noon at the Bar Association of Montgomery County. Please RSVP 24 hours in advance if you plan to attend. We are working to bring you informative speakers in 2019 and will announce our speakers’ names via email in the coming weeks. This month marks the start of a prosperous New Year, as we educate our community about the value of and the benefits that the collaborative law process offers to clients in resolving their disputes outside of court.
This year, we are striving to support attorneys in the collaborative community who practice both civil and domestic collaborative law so that they may hone their skills and offer this valuable service to as many clients in our local communities as possible. As always, we welcome your suggestions and requests about discussion topics and future speakers at our meetings, CLEs, and roundtable meetings about managing, marketing and growing a contemporary Collaborative Law practice. Please invite your partners, associates, mentors, mentees, colleagues, and fellow practitioners to join one of our lunch meetings. We welcome any collaborative professional who would like to speak at our meetings and contribute to the collaborative practice movement by sharing their experiences and practical knowledge.
Please reach out to any of your co-chairs if you want to get more involved in collaborative practice or have any suggestions for future discussion topics.

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. In 2014, Maryland passed its own version of the Uniform Collaborative Law Act.
