About My Practice
Leslie Soley is a dedicated and committed convert to the collaborative law process. Instead of a traditional court battle, Ms. Soley prefers thoughtful communication and problem solving so that the entire family benefits. She has found that when couples maintain control over the process and results of divorce they are able to restructure their family and achieve a more positive outcome. This is especially true when married couples with children divorce.
The most difficult “hot button” issue in many divorce cases is child custody. Children of a contentious relationship are regularly caught in the middle, with their needs often ignored. The collaborative approach is especially effective in resolving child custody matters where attorneys and mental health professionals assess the needs of the children first. Ms. Soley considers the greatest benefit of a collaborative divorce to be the increased focus on the needs and long term well being of children.
