Attorney Raleigh “Lee” Greene, his son Raleigh “Billy” Greene and daughter-in-law Megan M. Greene, at GREENE & GREENE, practice collaborative divorce to help parting couples restructure their families without the added pain often involved in going to court.
Lee, Billy & Megan explain that in the collaborative model, both spouses and their attorneys commit in writing to share all pertinent information which remains confidential to the process, to communicate respectfully, constructively & creatively, to participate in conferences, and to file nothing unilaterally in court until a final settlement is reached. If either party chooses to go to court sooner, both attorneys have to withdraw and the parties retain new counsel. With several decades of divorce litigation experience, Lee is quick to point out that collaborative divorce settlements continue to grow as parties learn about the many benefits this option provides, especially where children are involved. It is highly rated for producing lasting agreements and beneficial co-parenting plans.

Collaborative law process involves the non-adversarial resolution of family law disputes through voluntary settlement procedures. Generally, the collaborative team consists of an attorney for each party, a neutral family specialist and a neutral financial specialist. Attorneys, Peter N. Meros and Belinda B. Lazzara at MEROS, SMITH, LAZZARA, BRENNAN & BRENNAN, PA have substantial training and experience in the collaborative law process. The process is voluntary and requires the participating attorneys and clients to sign a written agreement. The keys to the process are full disclosure, complete transparency, and such a commitment to success that if the process is not successful, the attorneys may not represent the parties in any contested proceeding. As a result of these commitments, the success rate is extremely high.
Peter and Belinda know that this process helps families through often-contentious situations without destroying their relationships along the way. The team approach and identification of common goals and solutions allows the parties to maximize their marital assets and put the best interests of the parties and their children first, without the trauma of litigation.
