Collaborative Divorce Comes To Sarasota & Manatee Counties

From Brian Pope, MBA, CDFA, and Cindy Barry, Esq.:

I am extremely pleased to announce that there is a new group in town!  The “Next Generation Divorce” group for the Twelfth Judicial Circuit has been formed as an expansion of “Next Generation Divorce” of Tampa Bay.

Next Generation Divorce

As the President of the Twelfth Judicial branch of the Next Generation Divorce group (Cindy Barry, not me), it is my sincere pleasure to extend an invitation to the bench and Bar of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit to attend a free presentation on collaborative law on February 6, 2014, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  in the Palm Room at the Sarabay Country Club located at 7011 Willow Street, Sarasota, Florida, 34243.  There will be a variety of complimentary Hors d’Ouerves and a cash bar available for libations.

Our guest speaker is the President of the Tampa Bay area “Next Generation Divorce”, Mr. Adam Cordover, Esq.   He will be sharing the successes of the collaborative law practices in the greater Tampa Bay area and answering questions on how to incorporate collaborative law into your practice.   Of course, there will be a social hour immediately following the presentation.

It is an exciting time as “Next Generation Divorce” is an active and professional group of Attorneys, Mental Health Professionals and Financial Professionals that have been collaboratively trained to help remove court cases from the traditional Court system.  You can visit our website at

Many of you have been around long enough to recall that over ten years ago, this concept was bandied about as an alternative dispute option for your clients, but it never really materialized.  In part, much of that was due to the then existing financial climate, which was very different from the financial climate we are facing today.

In a nutshell, collaborative law is where the attorneys, their clients and any mental health or financial professional all agree, in writing, that they will cooperate and freely exchange information necessary to resolve a case. All of the professionals have been trained in collaborative law which focuses on solution and problem solving rather than traditional litigation. 

Collaborative law is much more efficient, both emotionally and financially, and can resolve cases in a more streamlined manner which leads to faster resolution.  Please attend and find out how you can incorporate collaborative law into your practice.

R.S.V.P. to Cynthia S. Barry at  or (941)306-5657 by January 30, 2014.

I look forward to seeing you there!
