Additionally, Collaborative Practice allows you the benefit of family professionals, financial specialists and other experts all on the same team working to achieve a “win-win” outcome for all parties involved.

Tammy’s many years of experience have allowed her to gain a set of skills that are very valuable in the mediation process and very effective in getting any dispute issues handled with amicable resolution.
Divorce is a very difficult process for a person to go through. There are many unknowns and questions that can make people feel fearful about their future. In those situations, it can be hard for couples to get the space necessary to be able to step back, make good decisions about the future and talk with each other. At Hajduk Gibbs, our top priority is to ensure that a proper negotiation climate is reached between you and your spouse. We’ll be there to support you and keep the negotiating space safe and clear. Once both spouses realize that the goal is to get both your needs met, each person can begin to really listen to the other and to move forward successfully.
In general, collaborative family law is far less expensive than a court proceeding that goes all the way to a trial. If you’re considering divorce, talk to Tammy L. Olson about a divorce agreement that ensures both you and your spouse reach a fair divorce settlement based on your priorities and avoids any potentially huge expenses and stress associated with a settlement reached in court.
