Divorce, child custody and other family disputes are emotional by nature, and our adversarial justice system tends to make those emotions worse. Even an uncontested divorce that is settled out of court by the spouses and their lawyers can get ugly when the parties are motivated more by hurting the other side than by reaching an agreement.
This attitude can make it harder to resolve disputes and can leave lasting resentments. This, in turn, can harm parents’ ability to cooperate with each other on parenting responsibilities. These unresolved conflicts often hurt their children’s mental health in the long run.
Attorney Christine S. Cook is trained in collaborative law, a system that uses mediation and other techniques to resolve family law disputes in a positive, forward-looking way. However, she also has extensive experience arguing forcefully on behalf of clients in adversarial negotiations and in court. She has the skills to take a case wherever it needs to go to secure the best results for our clients.
