Collaborative Practice San Francisco

Collaborative Practice works best for clients who wish to settle without going to court and are willing to commit to a good faith effort to do so.  In Collaborative Practice, you maintain control over your decision making rather than letting a judge decide.  You can also control the amount of information that becomes a part of the public record (normally, the entire divorce or other legal file is open to the public, including any allegations made by either party in obtaining temporary orders or at trial.) 

People in conflict often have continuing relationships with each other, as co-parents, business colleagues, or through their circle of friends and relatives.  Collaborative Practice will increase the possibility of maintaining a civil or even cordial relationship with the other person(s) after the resolution of your conflict.

You should also consider Collaborative Practice if you wish to dramatically reduce your legal fees.  A dispute that goes through the entire legal process including a trial can cost $50,000 and up for each party.  The formal legal procedures take much more attorney time (and your money) than the informal process used in Collaborative Practice.  The focus on settlement moves the case to resolution faster than the typical court-directed case which also can reduce your fees.

Will CP work for me?

If the following values are important to you, it is likely to be a workable option:
