Doris Tennant represents domestic relations clients using Collaborative Family Law, also known as ""Collaborative Practice." Parties and their attorneys sign a detailed agreement to resolve disputes without litigation. Collaborative Practice encourages cooperative and non-combative behavior, as both parties commit up front to eliminate litigation as an option and to seek an efficient, mutually agreeable settlement out of court.
Attorneys trained in Collaborative Practice understand that for their clients to get their needs met, it's necessary for the other side also to get their needs met. Clients walk away feeling empowered. They have participated in a process that maximizes their contributions, encouraging imaginative solutions they might never have found in a courtroom.
