What is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative Law is a practice in which both parties and their attorneys agree in writing that each will use their best efforts and good faith to come to a mutually agreed upon settlement without resorting to judicial intervention. Four-way settlement meetings are conducted where each party and their attorney is present. The difference between collaborative law and mediation is that unlike mediators, collaborative lawyers are active legal advisors and negotiators for their clients. The structure of the four-way meetings is led by the attorneys, not the parties. 

In order to find a collaborative law attorney, there are several options available to you. You can contact your local bar association and inquire about any collaborative lawyers in your area. You can also contact the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals to locate collaborative lawyers near you.
