The Collaborative Law divorce is most useful when people want to:
Collaborative Law involves a settlement team that includes both parties and their collaboratively trained attorneys. The group signs a pact not to go to court, and to resolve their differences creatively through a series of meetings with the settlement team. A Financial Neutral and/or Communication Coach may be utilized from time to time, if necessary, to facilitate settlement. If the parties fail to resolve all of their disputed issues through the Collaborative process, they may hire new attorneys and litigate those remaining issues.
Attorney Fout has attended intensive training in Collaborative Law and is the President of the Northeast Ohio Collaborative Professionals – a practice group aimed at improving their collaborative skills through monthly meetings and training.

Teresa is a very professional legal representative that was very patient with me and very comforting. She took the time to answer and clarify, if needed, any questions I had. She was very helpful and knew the laws and how to handle what I would call a difficult situation. She even assisted me after the divorce was final with some advice I needed and was there for me even with her busy caseload. I would certainly recommend her to anyone that would need her services.
