Peacemaker Signature

Collaborative practice leads to peace and understanding when undertaken with the right approach

The Peacemaker Signature is a statement Collaborative Practitioners often create to share how they approach Collaborative Practice.

As a member of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee for the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, Alisa Peskin-Shepherd takes this approach to divorce law seriously and wants clients to know how Transitions Legal will support and serve them during their Collaborative Divorce. (Of course, we hold these principles to be true in ALL of our cases!)

Alisa Peskin-Shepherd: My Peacemaker Signature

I am a compassionate, passionate and detail-oriented peacemaker.

My determination and commitment to the process, understanding the importance of being balanced and having balance in your life, will help my clients achieve their goals.

I value happiness; I value the ability to make your own decisions.
