Divorce can be one of the most turbulent times in your life, and so it makes me feel good when I can help clients gain a sense of empowerment and stability.
In a recent review on Avvo.com, a former client of mine discusses how our firm and the collaborative process helped her take back control of her life.

Steered Me Through A Difficult Divorce
After my ex and I had agreed to move forward in the collaborative path for our divorce, I had interviewed a few lawyers and finally met with Adam. I have to admit that at our first meeting, I was a bit nervous. Adam looks like he could have just graduated from law school versus being an expert in this still relatively unknown process within family law. My largest concern was his ability to deal with my ex’s controlling and unbelievably argumentative ways give Adam’s very quiet demeanor.
He assured me that he had been able to come to mediation with other divorces when the mental health of the other spouse was an issue. What convinced me to hire Adam was his passion and belief in the process of collaborative divorce as a way to protect my interests and still come to a peaceful conclusion.
From the very beginning, Adam explained to me and kept me involved in the entire process of how vetting of the members of the “divorce team” would happen. I felt so more confident about the process after meeting and observing how these team members were selected and worked together.
I am so happy that I did not follow the litigation style of divorce. Although the entire divorce was difficult, with every collaborative team meeting, I felt empowered and more in control of my life and my own divorce. Adam was key in prepping me and following up on each divorce team meeting, as well as being my personal rock. When our meetings or I became unproductive, he stepped away from the lawyer role and helped “reset” me so I could help myself.
If you find yourself in need of a divorce lawyer, I could not recommend Adam enough. Trust in his quiet, observant command of detail. Trust in his long term strategy for how to best protect your interests. Trust in his understanding of what a painful situation it is for ALL persons involved, not just his own client. Trust in the process, and trust in his ability to get you the new start in life you want.
