Collaborative Law Services for Families in the Calgary Area

Another option Wise Scheible Barkauskas can offer to their clients is the option of resolving a file through collaborative case resolution. This is only possible when both lawyers acting for the two sides of a conflict are trained collaborative lawyers.

What is collaborative law?

Collaborative law is a process whereby both parties and their lawyers commit themselves to resolving their differences openly and constructively to try to maximize the outcome to each party.

The parties and lawyers will not resort or threaten to go to court.

Collaborative law relies on an atmosphere of honesty, cooperation, integrity and professionalism geared toward the future well-being of the family.

Collaborative law engages in informal discussions and conferences to settle all issues.

Collaborative law requires each party and each lawyer to take a principled approach on all issues. Where the parties differ, all participants use their best efforts to create proposals that meet the fundamental interests of both parties and strive to reach settlement of all issues.

Please contact Mr. Barkauskas for information on collaborative law.
