In collaborative law, it's working with the parties – almost like mediation with lawyers except that you're putting everything on the table the same way. In court, you have to go through a lot more different steps – you have to do discovery, you have to do all the paperwork, and reviewing all the paperwork – whereas, if you go into collaborative law, everything is right there in front of you and everyone voluntarily brings it in, so it takes less time than the litigation system.
