    • Why would anyone ever want to collaborate?
      “Couples who are facing a divorce are not likely to hire lawyers who are more akin to mental health therapists and advocate that everyone get naked, jump in a pile, eat potluck and sign agreements mutually beneficial to everyone”
      http://ricefamilylaw.com/articles/collaborative-law-and-divorce.htm
    • More criticism
      As a remedy for the burned-out lawyer and the terrified divorce client the Collaborative Law movement has struck a chord.

    • Final Thoughts
      Lawyers are trained to do battle for their clients.  http://ricefamilylaw.com/articles/collaborative-law-and-divorce.htm
      “My ex-husband and I divorced via collaborative law. I think that's a main contributor to the way we can still talk to each other. I so hope I will never ever go through divorce again because it's horrible - but at least this time I don't feel damaged by the process itself.” User on Wikivorce
