Feldesman Tucker Partner Sarah Zimmerman has been elected to the Board of the DC Academy of Collaborative Law Professionals (“DCACP”) for the 2017-2018 term. DCACP is a community of caring professionals committed to achieving good outcomes for divorcing clients and their families through utilization of the Collaborative Process. DCACP, which recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of its founding, includes attorneys, mental health professionals and financial experts among its members.
During her term on the Board, Sarah intends to focus on ensuring that DCACP will continue to be at the forefront of providing high-quality training and education to its members as well as other Collaborative professionals. An equally important priority for Sarah will be raising awareness among members of the general public about the Collaborative Process and its benefits, as well as increasing the availability and affordability of the Collaborative Process to clients in the District of Columbia.
Six of the Family Law attorneys at Feldesman Tucker have been trained in the Collaborative Process, and the firm has been a leader in bringing Collaborative Practice to the DC metropolitan area.
