Schiller DuCanto & Fleck, LLP, the number one ranked family law firm in the nation, has also been ranked first in the nation in a tie vote for Collaborative Law. The Best Lawyers in America® ranking is based on an exhaustive annual peer-review survey compiled by Woodward/White, Inc., a professional research company. For the 2010 U.S. edition, more than 24,126 attorneys cast more than 2.8 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in the same and related fields of practice.

As the use of collaborative law gains in popularity among spouses seeking to maintain dignity in the face of divorce, Schiller DuCanto & Fleck has emerged as a leader in the field. The Best Lawyers in America® 2010 edition has listed the nationally recognized leading family law firm as “tie” for the top spot in collaborative law. It also names James R. Galvin, Partner and Carlton R. Marcyan, Partner, Executive Committee Chairman as Best Lawyers in the practice of collaborative and family Law.

“By providing clients with every available resource and alternative so they can choose the approach that is right for them, Schiller DuCanto & Fleck has been a leader in embracing Collaborative Law,” notes Donald C. Schiller, Senior Partner. “We are fortunate to have two of the nation’s most talented and trained attorney’s in collaborative and family law.”

“No single approach to the divorce process is right for everyone, “ notes James R. Galvin, who has practiced matrimonial law for more than 30 years and in the last several years has developed expertise in collaborative divorce, having successfully collaborated many high conflict, large asset cases. “Many couples today are asking whether serious martial conflict can be resolved without the time, expense and conflict of litigation. The answer for many clients is yes-divorce need not be a battleground. However, Collaborative Law is not for everyone”, he adds.

Collaborative Law maintains privacy of all personal and financial matters versus open public records in Court

“A significant advantage of collaborative law is that all personal and financial matters are kept private rather than open public records of a case tried in court,” adds Carlton R. Marcyan, who in addition to being an experienced trial lawyer, is a certified public accountant, certified financial planner, and certified divorce planner. “For clients going through divorce, especially business owners and clients with high assets, keeping personal and financial matters private is an important value.”

The number of people turning to the option of a collaborative divorce is on the rise as people become more aware of the process and its benefits. For an overview, Schiller, DuCanto & Fleck has prepared a downloadable brochure “Maintaining Dignity in the Face of Divorce.” The firm also offers an email newsletter that provides valuable information on all aspects of family law.
