In his 50 years of law practice, Bob has tried many jury and non-jury cases in various courts in Nevada, California, and Missouri. The litigation process is stressful, public, expensive, and time-consuming. Trials empower judges and juries and not parties in decision-making. Trial outcomes are never certain and usually unsatisfactory. Trials are rarely satisfactory in resolving family law cases, and trials frequently fracture already strained family relationships. However, an interest-based, non-oppositional, non-trial, but problem-solving approach in family law cases allows for mutual participation and cooperation. Bob's main goal is to help clients find solutions that not only allow clients to be respectful and creative but also that allow them to work towards achieving and implementing mutual interests --- the process and goal of collaborative law.
