The Law Collaborative has partnered with the State Bar of California to provide licensed attorneys with MCLE Credits. Our October 18 seminar, Tips, Tricks & Strategies for Divorce offers attorneys 1 MCLE for $25. If you’re an attorney interested in adding family law to your menu of services, this 90 minute seminar will teach you important tips, tricks, and strategies for moving cases forward, how to better protect a client’s assets during divorce, why fighting for a client to keep the family residence may hurt them in the long run, and common divorce-related tax issues  most family law attorneys don’t appreciate or understand.

This seminar is also ideal for those with no legal background who are in the process of divorce. Do you feel like your case is stuck? Is negotiating with your ex impossible?

Interview With A Superior Court Judge (Part 4 of 4)

“Clients should listen to their lawyers more, and the people they know at Starbucks less.” – the Honorable Judge Thomas Trent Lewis

Family Court does not get adequate resources. There aren’t enough judges, there aren’t enough clerks, there aren’t enough courtrooms. Family law makes up a huge percentage of judicial filings, but it receives a very small percentage of judicial resources. Additional judicial resources is just one of the recommendations made by the Elkins Committee, a two-year taskforce study that came out last October because of concerns regarding access and fairness that came about in the case of Elkins v Superior Court.

Judge Thomas Trent Lewis, a sitting Superior Court Judge with over twenty-eight years of experience as a Certified Family Law Specialist, is one of the advisors to the people on the Elkins Committee. Listen in as he talks with Ron and Robert about the Elkins Report, case management, early neutral evaluation, mediation, how divorcing families can save resources, why litigation is the wrong path to divorce, and who should try marriage counseling before filing.
