The Cooperative Law Model

The Cooperative Law Model, unlike the Collaborative Model, is not a limited representation tool. In fact, the cooperative model is not dissimilar from how really good attorneys habitually practice law. The real difference in the cooperative model is that not only the attorneys agree to act in a collaborative fashion to resolve as many issues as possible prior to litigating, or even filing suit, in your divorce.

In the cooperative model, attorneys provide their clients with tools for cooperative interaction and endorse an environment where ideas are carefully considered. Under the cooperative model, attorneys and divorcing parties participate in the same kinds of dispute resolution techniques as are, in every case in North Carolina, required by the court. The difference is in the parties’ agreement to wholly cooperate in the process.

Inevitably, cooperating in any disagreement is cost effective. This sentiment is not limited to the monetary effectiveness of cooperation, but also the includes easement of the emotional investment you will make during the process. Cooperation, as opposed to polarity, is beneficial to everyone involved and helps to build a foundation to resolve problems as they arise in the future.

At Jack Poisson Law, you will always see this model used in approaching other lawyers and their clients. Whether cooperation between the parties can be relied upon or not, the effectiveness of cooperation between lawyers is always employed.
