Product Code 5130108
This unique handbook explains the dispute resolution model of collaborative law that is helping family lawyers bring their clients through the divorce passage with integrity and satisfaction.
Collaborative Law describes how this approach engages the unique problem-solving skills of lawyers to achieve settlements that appropriately customize outcomes in the way that few courts are able to achieve. In the collaborative process, fees and costs are minimized, high-quality legal counsel and negotiating assistance are built in, and the ability of divorcing spouses to cooperate and coparent is maximized to a dramatic extent.
To order today, call the ABA Service Center at 800-285-2221 and request Product Code 5130108 or order online.
