Building Blocks of Collaborative Practice 2009
I am a shareholder at Reuter, Whitish & Evans, S.C., located in Madison. In my over twenty years of professional practice, I have endeavored to provide the highest-quality legal services to clients to obtain favorable and fair results. My deep experience in litigation, including previous work as a Marine Judge Advocate, has given me a unique perspective and expertise helpful to my clients in the collaborative divorce process. I have found that, for many people, resolving matters outside of litigation and in a collaborative manner achieves the best results in their dispute. The collaborative divorce process regularly saves time and money and avoids the stress and uncertainty of litigation.
Divorce involves serious and important issues. Time with children, concern with financial matters, including support and retirement, and complex issues such as a family business or farm, are all serious matters that need professional guidance and attention to detail. My promise to all my clients is to provide that attention and guidance in a professional and cost-effective manner.
My years of experience with divorce and family law cases includes extensive work with long-term marriages, marital property agreements, family businesses and complex child custody and placement issues, including application of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. I have also mediated numerous financial disputes for divorces.
I live in the Waunakee community, where I am a member of the Waunakee Rotary, and I serve as the President of the Waunakee Police Commission. I have two children, and spend many weekends traveling for their activities, including hockey.
