Sonoma County attorneys, mental health professionals and financial specialists in collaborative practice can assist clients to find creative solutions without going to court.
If you're considering divorce or are involved in any other legal
dispute, such as a civil or probate case, you can talk with a CCRE
Coach to decide whether utilizing Collaborative Practice is
appropriate for you.
Collaborative Practice is a new way for people to respectfully
resolve disputes, particularly in divorce and family law, but also in
civil and probate matters. Unlike litigation, the Collaborative
Process is private, cooperative and efficient. It reduces stress and
results in client-directed solutions. Clients work to resolve their
concerns outside of court with the help of a team of collaboratively
trained attorneys and other professionals in a manner similar to
mediation. Collaborative Professionals are located in Santa Rosa,
Petaluma and other Sonoma County cities.
People choose Collaborative Practice as it lets them be involved and have control over their case. They have the full support of their attorney and team in their negotiations. This helps them make well-informed and appropriate decisions, and find solutions not possible in litigation. The Collaborative Process promotes creative ways to work things out.
The process leads to better, long-lasting solutions and less conflict in the future. Why is this? The very nature of the process gives consideration to each person's needs. Solutions are mutually created and based on full and open information sharing. A safe environment is created such that difficult conversations may occur with good result.
From the start, the team focuses on reaching mutually beneficial solutions. The power struggles, delay, expense and wear and tear of a court battle are avoided. This saves significant time and money. People have the opportunitiy to feel that they have achieved a good result with dignity and self-respect.
