Collaborative Law

Nashville Collaborative Law

Moving Forward through Alternative Dispute Resolution

Collaborative law is a form of alternative dispute resolution in which clients sign an agreement to resolve their dispute without going to court. In the collaborative divorce practice, attorneys, specially trained in collaborative dispute resolution, represent clients who desire to work out a mutually acceptable agreement without court intervention. This includes prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, separation agreements, marital dissolution agreements, and parenting plans.

In collaborative law, parties agree to fully disclose information relating to their assets and debts. As a result, the collaborative process ordinarily does not involve formal discovery. If necessary, other professionals trained in collaborative law, such as mental health professionals, divorce coaches, child specialists, and financial professionals, can be brought in to assist the parties in negotiating an agreement. If parties are unable to reach an agreement through the collaborative process, they agree to retain new counsel going forward.

“Joshua Lindsey handled my case with compassion and professionalism from day one. He is intelligent, but down to earth, and exudes a comforting confidence about the legal process. … He also had a terrific response rate when I needed to reach him, and asked repeatedly about me and my children; clearly, we were more than ‘just a case’ to him. Joshua is terrific, and I recommend him without reservation.”

“Kristen helped me navigate a very difficult divorce and bring it to an incredibly speedy and successful resolution. She worked carefully with me to make sure I understood what I could expect, helped me determine what was most important to me, and deliver exactly what I was hoping for. She became more than my attorney through the process, as her caring and follow-through were excellent. I’m hoping not to need her services anymore, but if I do, I know she will be prepared to squelch any drama my ex might attempt.”

“Grant represented me in a collaborative divorce process. He provided me with solid understanding in a world I knew almost nothing about before getting started. He was thorough in his preparation, respectful in all communications with me and with the other professionals involved. He was understanding of my specific situation, and he made himself available to fit my already full schedule. He gave me great advice from start to finish. I would recommend Grant without reservation, and I am completely satisfied with his representation.”
“Joshua Lindsey is both a professional yet caring lawyer. He cared about me, my divorce, my son and worked hard to get the best for me and my child. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lawyer. Joshua is the perfect lawyer if you are looking for someone that will not only fight for you and your rights, but actually cares about you while you are working with him.”

“I recently went through a nasty divorce and Kristen helped me feel taken care of and “safe” from a legal standpoint. Friendly, sharp, efficient and incredibly knowledgeable about the subject matter, I would highly recommend her to anyone facing the same hard times. She is also bills extremely fair, which helped ease unnecessary stress during such a difficult time.”

“Grant took the time to explain all aspects of the divorce process before I had decided to take that route. Even at times when I lost faith in everything Grant would call and reassure me that it would be ok and he was on my side. He is a great man and an amazing attorney. Thanks Grant.”
