Sandra Crawford, JD our highly esteemed colleague joined us to examine the “what & why” of how this method of Alternative Dispute Resolution works. For the past 29 years, Sandra has dedicated her legal practice to educating and leading clients to the clearest path to resolution of their unique legal issues. She helps distressed families and partnerships move out of conflict using the most appropriate legal dispute resolution model, be that: the Collaborative Practice, mediation, limited scope representation or litigation.
Sandra received her undergraduate degree from DePaul University in 1984 and her Juris Doctorate from the John Marshall Law School in 1989. She has been a practicing mediator since 1994 and was among the first attorneys in Illinois to be trained in the Collaborative Law model of dispute resolution when the model was introduced here in 2002.
We hope you enjoy this rich dialogue with a seasoned practitioner, educator, and passionate collaborator!
