Collaborative Law

Bruce is actively involved in Collaborative Divorce, as a member of the Cincinnati Academy of Collaborative Professionals. Collaborative Divorce is dedicated to resolving divorce issues and other family law disputes through negotiation and agreed settlements. In Collaborative Law cases, both parties and their attorneys make a binding commitment to negotiate an agreed resolution without the use of litigation tactics or adversarial Court proceedings.

Divorce Mediation

Bruce also is a certified mediator of divorce issues and other family law disputes. In divorce mediation, the mediator is a neutral third-party who helps the parties make their own settlement agreement without the expense and conflict of a litigated divorce case in Court. A divorce mediator does not decide any outcome, as the only outcome in mediation is a mutual agreement that is voluntarily made by both parties.
