In June 2017, the Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals held its fifth annual conference right here in Tampa. The theme of the conference was “Get In On The Act,” in celebration of the recent passage of the Collaborative Law Process Act.
Over 200 attorneys, mental health professionals, financial professionals, and others attended the conference to delve into introductory, intermediate, and advanced topics in collaborative practice. There were also quite a few attendees from outside of Florida, from areas as far away as Erie, Pennsylvania and Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
Family Diplomacy managing attorney Adam B. Cordover presented for two of the workshops at the conference:
- Collaborative Unscripted: The Role of Creativity in the Process (with Kristin DiMeo, CPA; Jeremy Gaies, Psy.D.; David Harper, CPA; and Barbara Kelly, Ph.D.); and
- The Cost of Collaboration: Efficiency vs. Cutting Corners (with Brian Galbraith, LL.B., LL.M.; and Melissa Sulkowski, M.A., LPC)
