Woody’s Minneapolis training on Getting More Cases has truly set the Iowa Collaborative practice group on fire — several of us have found all sorts of magical things zhappening since we’ve been back in Des Moines. It’s amazing what happens when you begin to think more creatively about your practice and how to use collaborative law skills to better serve your clients. I’ve attended a lot of trainings in my career and his is top notch. I highly recommend Woody’s training.

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.
