The purpose of the training is to educate members of various professions on how they can help families go through divorce privately, efficiently, and as peacefully as possible.

“Excellent!  Well organized, informative, funny, and thorough!  You kept our attention during some very dry ‘legal-ease,’ and are all great team players,” praised Professor Randy Heller, the organizer of the training.

“You are amazing!” proclaimed Nancy Brodzki, president of the Collaborative Family Law Professionals of South Florida, the main sponsors of the training.  When asked what other topics she was interested in attending, Nancy responded, “Any collaborative training you offer.”

“Adam is extremely knowledgeable, well-spoken, and a huge asset to the collaborative divorce program,” said attendee and attorney Honit Simon.  “Adam did well in combining practice with theory,” commented another attendee, mental health student Solomon Udo.

“Great presenter.  Very knowledgeable and professional, and maneuvers well to switching between his roles as a speaker, lawyer, and actor,” mentioned one participant, while another called Cordover a “very good lecturer.”

A financial professional provided the feedback that Adam was “well organized and passionate.  Incorporated humor and comedy to support the materials.”  Similarly, Aleyah Yasin, Ph.D., commented, “I like how Adam incorporated humor and wit into his presentation of the law material.”

One lawyer said Adam has a “great personality.  Appreciate his humility.  Strong communicator.”  Finally, a mental health professional applauded Adam’s “amazing energy.  He seemed very knowledgeable and experienced.  I loved his passion for collaborative practice.”
