Philosophy: Client-Driven Peaceful Solutions

Our Open Philosophy embraces the concept of a client-driven process, facilitated by professionals, to create a peaceful solution to disputes of all types.  Clients always have the option to choose the team members that suit their needs and the professional team will always work to help clients create their best possible solution.

When Stu Webb created collaborative law, he had one basic premise in mind:  the parties would not litigate and, if they did, the professionals would withdraw.  We embrace Stu’s simple, yet elegant solution to the traditional litigated disputes that have created emotional, physical, financial and spiritual bankruptcy in thousands of families.

We welcome the opportunity to help you create teams for these types of issues:

  • Premarital Agreements
  • Cohabitation Agreements and Breakups
  • Paternity Disputes
  • Divorce

  • Post-Decree Modifications (child support, parenting time)

  • Contract Disputes

  • Education and Special Needs Issues
  • Any issue where you want or need to maintain an ongoing relationship, whether in business or families.
