Collaboration Law: For Better Results, Less Stress
Divorce and other family law matters do not have to be accomplished in an adversarial environment. At Rome McGuigan, P.C., our family law attorneys have substantial experience in collaboration and mediation. These methods of dispute resolution have a number of advantages over litigation.

- Less stress and cost: Lawyers trained in collaboration can help couples resolve their cases without the stress, cost, publicity and unpredictability of the adversarial court system.
- More control: By working with a mediator, couples can retain control over their lives and make their own decisions about family law issues, rather than allowing a judge to take control of the process.
- Conflict resolution: Collaborative law helps resolve conflicts in a positive, constructive manner; helps the couple reach an acceptable settlement that meets the fundamental needs of both parents and their children.
- Privacy and focus: Collaboration enables a divorcing couple or divorced parents maintain an amicable relationship as they deal with issues in privacy rather than in a courtroom. This keeps legal fees lower and enables the parties to focus on what really matters — the interests of the children, for example.
Our mediation and collaboration attorneys are well trained in collaborative law, and they continue to build on that training. Attorney Debra C. Ruel co-founded the Hartford area Collaborative Divorce Lawyers Association. Attorney Anne C. Dranginis is the former chief administrative judge for family matters in Connecticut.
