I was initially exposed to Collaborative law in 2011. Since that time I have been continually impressed with the results achieved for families in the Collaborative practice. It was these results that led me to become trained in Collaborative law during law school, and to make it an important part of my practice today.
I hold an undergraduate degree in Legal Studies from Hamline University and a Juris Doctorate from William Mitchell College of Law. At both of these institutions, my studies focused on honing the skills I would need to effectively represent clients in the Collaborative practice. Throughout law school I kept Collaborative law as the lens through which I viewed my family law studies.
Upon opening my own practice, I knew that Collaborative family law would be central to my office. Today, when I am asked what I do I am proud to say that I specialize in families and in keeping families out of court. On countless occasions upon sharing what I do, individuals will inform me that they were “one of those kids in court,” and that the experience has never left their minds. I truly believe that through the Collaborative practice families can operate at their highest levels to come through the divorce process more equipped with the necessary tools to move onto the next step in their journey.
