Pollock Begg Announces New Pittsburgh Collaborative Law Attorneys
October 28, 2016 | Community
As a leading matrimonial law firm in western Pennsylvania, we are happy to announce certification of Pittsburgh collaborative law attorneys Robert D. Raver and Andrew P. Griffin. Associate attorneys at our firm, Bob and Andrew both recently gained certifications in collaborative law to complement their growing family law practices. With these newest certifications for our family lawyers, Pollock Begg now has four attorneys certified in collaborative law, two in mediation and one in arbitration.
Many of our clients are high net worth individuals, C-level executives and sports or political figures who desire a more confidential, private way of dissolving their marriages and staying out of court. For divorce, custody, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements as well as other family law issues, collaborative methods are often a more favorable option for high profile clients.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
As an alternative dispute resolution option, the collaborative process allows for a client-driven approach in which the parties agree to settle outside of court, reaching a resolution aimed to benefit the entire family without resorting to litigation. An important aspect of the process is full disclosure of relevant information and transparency. If either party files a motion in court, the collaborative law attorneys must resign from the case, prompting both sides to find new attorneys and start the process all over again. This collaborative process ultimately results — for most clients — in less hostility and bitterness, lower costs, privacy and a custom solution.
