Our San Luis Obispo unit fall schedule begins on Thursday, September 25th. Attorney Dan W. Scott will present a 2 CEU program on “Cooperative Divorce, Mediation, and Other Alternatives to Litigation.” This presentation is intended to help therapeutic practitioners help their clients reach more satisfying outcomes with respect to issues arising from marital separation and divorce. Divorcing couples can avoid financially ruinous and excruciatingly painful legal strife by exploring the various alternatives to contested divorce litigation. These include family court services, private judging, collaborative lawyering, divorce mediation and pro per options.
The SLO unit will meet from 5:30pm to 8:00pm and begin with social networking, refreshments, and a brief business meeting. The CEU program begins at 6:00pm. Please contact Ly-Lan Lofgren at email@example.com for the address and directions.
