Collaborative Practice

Our approach to legal matters is always to help you make informed decisions and find the best way to a resolution, whether that involves education and negotiation, or, if other avenues are unsuccessful, going to court.

SullivanLaw also offers Collaborative Family Law solutions, which provides clients with an alternative to the traditional negotiation-to-court pathway of family disputes. Collaborative Practice allows clients to make their own decisions, knowing spouses and parents are interdependent and share common interests – even during a breakup.

In Collaborative Law, the parties involved give up the right to going to court, and focus solely on settlement. This often allows all parties, and their lawyers, to create settlement agreements that are creative, customized, and more satisfactory to everyone.

Collaborative Law is just one method of resolving disputes. In the right situation, it can deliver positive results to everyone involved – including parents and children, as well as grandparents, extended families, and the professionals in their lives.
