Collaborative Law Dedicated to Providing Efficient, Knowledgeable Legal Counsel

Raleigh Collaborative Law

Helping You Find a Solution that Works for Everyone

Collaborative law is a process in which the parties, their counsel, and other professionals (such as therapists, CPAs, and valuation experts) cooperate in trying to resolve a case and remove the threat of going to court as a means of resolution. The lawyer counsels and supports the client through the process, which involves voluntary and full disclosure. The parties must enter into a collaborative law agreement that governs the process. The parties and attorneys participate in four-way meetings to work toward a resolution, and experts are jointly retained by the parties. If the parties are unable to resolve all disputes, some contracts provide for arbitration. If no resolution or arbitration occurs, then in traditional collaborative law, each party must retain new counsel and experts to proceed to trial.
