CARMEL ATTORNEY/MEDIATOR PRESENTING AT NBI LEGAL EDUCATION SEMINAR

CARMEL, IN – March 23, 2009 – Holly Wanzer, an attorney and domestic mediator at JOCHAM HARDEN DIMICK JACKSON, PC, is presenting a teleseminar on Collaborative Law sponsored by the National Business Institute (“NBI”) on April 17, 2009.

Ms. Wanzer is a member of the Family Law Group of JOCHAM HARDEN DIMICK JACKSON, PC. A native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, she graduated magna cum laude from Ball State University, and earned her Juris Doctor summa cum laude from Indiana University School of Law, Indianapolis in 1999. Ms. Wanzer represents clients with family law matters including divorce, child support, custody, parenting time, modification and contempt issues. Her commitment to the private resolution of family issues, the preservation of positive working relationships within families and her calm demeanor and sensitivity in the face of emotional challenges make her the ideal choice as a mediator for family matters. As a domestic mediator, she has been active in promoting alternative dispute resolution, and became one of three attorneys of JHDJ Law to complete collaborative law training. She is now a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (“IACP”), and the Collaborative Family Law Association of Indiana, Inc.

Collaborative law is a relatively new form of dispute resolution, pioneered by Minneapolis family lawyer Stuart G. Webb. Primarily used in divorce as a means of resolving issues privately while minimizing conflict and bitterness, it is gaining in popularity. In collaborative divorce, the separating couple and their attorneys pledge at the outset to try to work things out through consultation and open communication, using lawyers and sometimes other experts to assist in the details. The parties pledge in advance not to go to court or use the information shared in collaborative discussions in litigation. Parties have more control to work out settlement details and find creative solutions for their problems, which they understand better than any judge or third party. Positive outcomes are best reached through respectful communications, not courtroom battles.

Experienced attorneys offer assertive advocacy for clients complemented by a philosophy focused on minimizing conflict and negotiating resolution.
