Frank truly believes that most family law cases can and should be resolved in a collaborative setting. In his own words” I have litigated divorce and custody cases for over forty years. The parties know their children and their assets better than anyone else, yet so often, they are willing to leave decisions affecting their property and their kids to a stranger – the judge. More often than not, one or both parties are unhappy with the decisions that stranger comes up with. Addressing the issues in a “collaborative” setting, where the parties, with the help of lawyers and other professionals, make the decisions, just makes more sense in so many cases”.
