Welcome to my Blog! The way our legal system works affects everyone so I will be speaking here to everyone, not just those in the legal profession. Since lawyers are people too I hope they, as well as everyone else, will find something of value here. I will be sharing a variety of things I find of interest.

Cindy Pensoneau was there but did not appear on the show. Amy is the former president of the Memphis Bar Association who became familiar with collaborative process about ten years ago thru her work at the ABA and the Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. She was the 'con' to collaborative practice but I think we won her over!
