Collaborative lawyers have an attorney-client retainer agreement that confirms their collaborative law arrangement, including a promise to try in good faith to resolve the dispute without resort to litigation, and that if the matter goes to court the attorneys for both sides will be disqualified from any further participation.
Collaborate or Litigate? Now a choice in Alaska.
Since 1988, and through my having both litigated and settled hundreds of cases, I have witnessed the real life, enduring harm of family law cases processed through litigation. I have too-often watched avoidable waste of money, time and energy. I have also shared in the work of divorce and custody matters that the parties controlled, instead of a judge, through a growing option now available in Alaska: Collaborative Law.
I am an Attorney member of the Alaska Association of Collaborative Professionals (AKACP) and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP). I practice Family Law/Domestic Relations exclusively in Alaska.
Is Collaborative Law a fit for everyone? No. However, the Collaborative Law approach might be the right choice for you and your family. To learn more, contact Ryan Roley and read a few of my blogs on to my website, which is dedicated to Collaborative Law (http://ryanroley.com). Also, read profiles of other member-lawyers, mental health professionals (MHPs) and financial professionals (FPs) available on our AKACP site.
