We aren’t your traditional law office. We take pride in helping our clients navigate change; in fact, that's our focus. Whether that is a traumatic life event or a change in the landscape of your business, we approach the need for change as an opportunity to further define your individual sense of integration in a world of competing interests..
As adults, we make decisions every day. Some decisions are easy, while others form the foundation for
the rest of our lives, or in the case of businesses, our sustainability.
As adults, we generally seek guidance and input from our natural support systems, but these natural
support systems are often made of people with a vested interest in the outcomes. Our family and
friends, our employees, our funders and customers have perspectives and expectations, related to their desires, too.
What if, when making decisions, you had a trusted advisor, without an attachment to the outcomes?
What if, when making decisions, you had someone who could help along each step of the process
without having their own desires impeding neutrality? Someone who could help define the issue and
your values, generate alternatives, evaluate and select a course of action and implement solutions?
That’s where we come in.
We bring a systems perspective in supported decision making. This means that we bring our extensive personal and professional experience from the fields of social work, health, the law, social research and mindfulness to the forefront of understanding your circumstances and goals. With a systemic approach, we creativity guide you through the generation of ideas for alternatives, we help you weigh those alternatives and we help you strategize the implementation of your decisions.
