In the collaborative process, a financial neutral is essential for complete knowledge of the current finances and modeling of how the finances could end up. No divorcing parties should be without both of these financial pictures and a CDFA is uniquely trained to provide this information. Hidden assets, property settlements, tax consequences, dividing retirement plans, health care coverage, stock option elections, pension plan valuations are some of the complexities I capture. CDFA's can save clients time and money by aiding them to come up with their own durable agreement. My corporate background, as well as my Financial Coaching business allow me to understand nuances others my not.

He believes that for a significant percentage of the divorces, including those with complex issues and/or a high level of conflict, it is possible to have the couple resolve their divorce issues without having to go through the stress and trauma of court motions, hearings, and a trial. This often results in a healthier post-divorce relationship, which can be very important when children are involved. John was involved in eastern Washington's first collaborative divorce case. He has continued this groundbreaking trend by being one of the most active collaborative divorce attorneys in the region, and no longer does adversa

Collaborative Law Process is a private alternative to traditional litigation. It provides a means for participants to achieve the desired result of a dissolution or quasi-marital split with an exchange of information to enable an informed decision between the parties for what makes the most sense for their circumstances. It gives both parties a process to determine their own future and the well-being of their children with privacy, integrity and dignity. The Collaborative Process is a win-win for all concerned.

I am interested in helping families through one of the most difficult experiences they may have and to help minimize the impact of their divorce. I see preserving the relationships they have moving forward for the benefit of their children and themselves as paramount. I believe that people would like to make their own decisions in their divorce, not have a judge do so.

I have been a lawyer for over twenty years. From January 2011 to April 2013, I served as a Pierce County Superior Court Commissioner. I presided over family law, probate/estate, guardianship, mental illness, juvenile court, landlord tenant, mortgage foreclosure, and other matters. While on the bench, I saw many family law cases which would have been more effectively and humanly handled with a well-trained collaborative team. I chose to leave the bench and to return to private practice. My practice focuses on family law--primarily divorce, legal separation, and child custody. My prior experience as a social worker and my mediation skills are essential to helping others to handle stress
