COLLABORATIVE
IS THE BEST WAY

I spent over 25 years representing spouses getting divorced through traditional litigation, and I saw every insanity you can imagine. Ten years ago I made the switch to the collaborative process, and I’ve never looked back.

For over 25 years I have represented spouses getting divorced through the traditional litigation model. I’ve witnessed every kind of “insanity” you can imagine, including a husband who bankrupted his company rather than giving anything to his wife. I’ve seen families torn apart not only by the animosity and anger that is fueled by the litigation process but by the enormous costs.

Throughout those 25 years, I have always been proud of the fact that the overwhelming majority of my cases settled.

About 10 years ago, I found a better way to put my skills to work assisting people in one of the most difficult times of their and their family’s life, divorce.

The Collaborative Process provides a vehicle for a dignified, peaceful, and respectful way to end a marriage while keeping the family intact. As a Collaborative Professional, I can help you and your spouse throughout your divorce without destroying your family. Working together, I can help you reach a financial solution by choice, not one made by a judge.

On January 1, 2016, after 16 years as Director of Litigation and Valuation Services at Appelrouth Farah & Co., I began an accounting practice dedicated to the Collaborative Process and other alternatives to settling financial disputes and divorces.

As a Certified Public Accountant, both Accredited in Business Valuation and Certified in Financial Forensics, I am able to harness those skills to assist parties in understanding the financial information needed to ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS and reach a financial settlement. Through the contacts I make as Vice President of the Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals and as a member of numerous practice groups throughout the State of Florida, I am able to help you put together a Collaborative team that will ease you through this difficult situation.
