This article is from Jack H. Emmott, a Collaborative Law Institute of Texas member and a family law attorney in Gray Reed and McGraw, P.C.’s Houston office.
A few weeks ago, Today (NBC’s popular morning show) did a fantastic piece on collaborative law that I think is worth viewing. Texas’ own T. Boone Pickens was mentioned in the piece which contains a treasure trove of ideas about the collaborative practice we love. It mentions a new book, 37 Things I Wish I’d Known Before My Divorce, by Nicole Baras Feuer and Francine Baras. These two mediators and co-authors explain the benefits of accepting the reality of divorce and stop waiting for an apology. Our clients need to practice forgiveness first and get the support they need to succeed in divorce and remain happy.
The video featuring their book is at the bottom of the linked article — the article also features some background on Joryn Jenkins, a collaborative law proponent from Tampa Bay whose collaborative law organization has recently rebranded itself Next Generation Divorce.
