I find that my collaborative law practice is far less stressful than my former litigation practice. First and perhaps most importantly, I have satisfied clients. My clients tend to let others know that they are pleased with the collaborative process and with my representation; they are a great source of referrals. I’ve found that every successfully settled collaborative case results in approximately 12 referrals within 5 years.
My clients are also willing to pay my bills immediately, because almost all of my billable time is spent in their presence (not waiting in a courthouse or writing letters). As a result, my accounts receivable have decreased dramatically.
