Description of Practice

Meredith Richardson is a conflict management specialist. Initially trained as an attorney, she has developed into a collaborative lawyer, mediator, guardian ad litem, facilitator, conflict coach, and parenting coordinator. As a litigator, she found that the people who came to her often were quite skilled at fighting, but seemed to have lost the ability to get along. She wanted to help them regain that skillset. Collaborative law provides one avenue for that to happen. In collaborative law, the participants and their attorneys agree that they will work together to craft the best agreement for the participants involved, and that they will not litigate. They work together in a team with a conflict coach and a financial advisor to make this happen. With her training and experience as an attorney, mediator, guardian ad litem, and parenting coordinator, Meredith is ideally suited to represent you as your collaborative lawyer.
