Family law partner Sharon Friedman-Castiel has been appointed to the Civility in Family Law Task Force (CFLTF). The goal of CFLTF is to bring civility to the family law industry so that the parties can leave their marriage with dignity in order to better foster an environment for children to thrive. A tall order, indeed! Task Force participants include experts in the field of marriage and family therapy, forensic accountants, and custody mediators, as well as family law lawyers. CFLTF meets regularly to discuss emerging issues and trends in the field. The emphasis is mediation or collaboration, if possible, with utilization of therapists as needed during the highly charged and emotional process.
