Collaborative Law

Collaborative Law is the practice of working together to resolve differences without going to court.  Each spouse has their own attorney, and all negotiations take place in four-way conferences between the parties and their attorneys. These conferences encourage creative problem-solving and settlement of all issues, tailored to the specific needs of the clients and their children.  


In some situations, divorcing couples are unable to resolve matters through collaborative law.  Such matters must be litigated. Although litigation is the costliest and often the least efficient way of proceeding, it is sometimes the only option. It is important that you have a skilled and experienced attorney on your side, and Carolyn has years of experience helping people navigate the divorce
