Fred is committed to the collaborative process. In the appropriate case, it can produce an outcome that is fair to both parties, endures the test of time, and allows parties to continue to co-parent effectively and peacefully. Fred employs the skills he learned when trained in the collaborative method to assist parties engaged in a collaborative process to work cooperatively, respectfully, and productively towards a mutually satisfactory result.
Fred can also bring to bear as necessary the knowledge and experience he has developed while practicing family law for over 30 years. That background allows Fred to understand both the legal issues and the human elements that play a role in every case. He is as adept at working out custody arrangements as he is about untangling and resolving complex property issues, such as might exist where business interests are involved. At the end of the day, Fred’s strength lies in his creativity and problem-solving skills.
