Testimonials

Collaborative Family Law:

"We used collaborative law because of the benefits we got for our family. We had a neutral finance person to take us through the numbers objectively so we could accept the reality of our financial situation. Other divorcing couples are backward looking and want a third party to referee the past years of their lives. In this process we talk about the future and what needs to happen down the road to make better lives."

Legal:

"Bill was a caring professional who helped us through a difficult process in a positive way. He got the job done really well without bad emotions dominating decision making. He knows his stuff and helped us get to a better outcome. We thank him for that."

Nonprofit:

"The Directors have learned to provide better leadership and effective oversight. This has led to an open and transparent process where the Board assessed and substantially improved organizational health and exercised sound, reasoned, deliberate, prudent, and effective judgment as a collaborative team."
