Understanding the Role of the CDFA® in the Collaborative Law Practice
Collaborative Law Practice seems to be thriving in some parts of the country, while struggling in other parts. Why is that? Where are all the collaborative cases we were hoping for after taking the required training? Having been a Financial Neutral on more cases than most other CDFAs in Massachusetts, I know first-hand that the process works and that our involvement on the team allows the parties to make fully informed, interest-based decisions that are best for them and their families. But there are inherent problems in the process that must be overcome in order to ‘sell it’ to our clients and in putting together a team where mutual respect is paramount to a successful outcome. I will share my insights as to what works and what doesn’t along with the ‘good, the bad and the ugly’ of this alternative dispute resolution process.
