I’ve has been practicing law since 2010, and I’m collaboratively trained. By way of personal motivation, I went though a personal “fitness crisis” after having several knee surgeries and found myself looking for a new way to stay active, after putting my running “career” on the shelf. This led me to seek yoga as an outlet. What began as a fitness motivation in yoga began to blend into my professional life, and found myself looking for a better way to practice law.

Collaborative law turned out to be the perfect way for me to personally work in a better, more mindful, and more peaceful way. My favorite day at work is a day where I get to work in a team environment, but still work as an advocate and peacemaker for the new normal facing a divorcing family.

My ex-wife and I completed our collaborative divorce last year. It was in Kenton County. The process worked very well. Most importantly, our children were not adversely affected by the divorce process. We were able to cooperate with regard to them throughout the process. Because of the Collaborative Process, we did not have to experience the months-long wait for court hearings that other couples experience. We were able to control the process, and work through our divorce more efficiently than in litigation.

Preparing for and attending a collaborative meeting in a divorce is much easier than preparing for and attending a court hearing.

Divorce is always challenging, but the Collaborative Process helped reduce the level of tension and anxiety for us, especially compared to other people I have known that did not do collaborative. We learned a process of communication that we still use to resolve issues with our children.
