Diane is a highly trained expert in Collaborative Divorce and has served as a Tarrant County Collaborative Law Training Course Director in 2001, 2004, 2006 and 2009. Collaborative law is a process in which parties agree to settle their case in a legally binding process outside the family law court system.
