Team Members

Roles of Team Members
Collaborative Attorneys work together as advocates for their clients to reach an amicable and comprehensive resolution of conflicts without going to court.

Our Team Members include:

Divorce Coaches
In consultation with your attorneys, you may have one or two Divorce Coaches on your team. Divorce Coaches help you uncouple your old, dysfunctional relationship by helping you process the emotional part of the break-up and build the skills you need in order to create a respectful divorce and move on with your life. 
Divorce Coaches help you and your partner learn to communicate better 
if there are children in the relationship, assist you in learning how to co-parent them together from different homes. Divorce Coaches are often invited to the meetings between you and your partner and the attorneys to facilitate communication. Sometimes they assist you and the Child Specialist in developing a parenting plan.
 Although Divorce Coaches are an extra expense, most people find that, since the coaches perform many tasks traditionally done by attorneys and do so for significantly less cost, the expense is justified. Divorce Coaches also help you come out of your divorce in a better emotional and mental place than you would have otherwise done, assuring you a better future.

Child Specialists
The Child Specialist joins the team when children are involved. They help the children understand and process their parents’ divorce and act as the children’s voice in developing a parenting plan. Child Specialists help the parents understand the adjustment needs of their children through this time of change. Child Specialists help the parents learn to co-parent from separate homes.

Collaborative Mediators
A Collaborative Mediator is a specially skilled conflict resolution specialist who honors Collaborative values in mediation: ownership of issues by the parties; interest-based negotiation; application of the parties’ values rather than those artificially legislated by others; using a sense of wholeness and balance in outcome; with durability that is greater than that limited to the issues of the moment only; and observation of full confidentiality of each of the parties and the process.

Eldercare Specialists
An Eldercare Specialist joins the team when issues with aging, quality care, costs, or local short term or long term care options are concerned. This person has a legal background and is experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of aging and care, including typical costs, resources and financial options, level of care required, dementia and associated issues. Their knowledge includes types of care available at all levels from retirement living, to assisted living, skilled nursing, adult family homes, and geriatric psychiatric hospitals. The Eldercare Specialist can educate families and be a neutral voice when there are family disputes. They can review current plans of care, and/or locate specific care options if required. They work in conjunction with the attorney to determine appropriate financial solutions.

Family Specialists
The Family Specialist performs the same functions as Divorce Coach and a Child Specialist but utilizes one neutral instead of two. It is appropriate for low or moderate conflict cases.

Financial Specialists
A Financial Specialist gives you the information you need to preserve your wealth, divide your assets, and protect your financial future. This person is experienced in calculating many different financial scenarios to show you what your financial options are. This lets you decide what type of financial settlement will help both of you create and maintain financial stability. Financial Specialists are generally present with the attorneys when the meetings focus on finances.
