Harry practices collaborative divorce law and estate planning in San Antonio. He has over twenty-five years experience dealing with family law issues, probate matters and disputes involving wills and trusts. Harry is an attorney and psychologist, so he understands both the legal and emotional issues involved in a collaborative divorce or probate dispute.
The collaborative process is a new and different way for Bexar County couples to resolve their disputes with dignity. During a collaborative divorce, clients don’t go near a courtroom except to prove up their divorce after it’s settled. Guided by an experienced collaborative team of two attorneys, a neutral mental health professional and a neutral financial professional, Bexar County coupoes can resolve their divorce dispute around a conference table by cooperative negotiation. The collaborative process is transparent, less expensive, quicker, flexible, confidential and helps preserve family relationships for better co-parenting after the divorce.
