Wright, Constable & Skeen
BALTIMORE, MD, SEPTEMBER 20, 2022 – Wright, Constable & Skeen, LLP is proud to announce that partner, Mollie G. Caplis, has been named president of the Collaborative Professionals of Baltimore (CPB).
In 2004, Ms. Caplis joined WCS, where she has developed a busy family law practice. Ms. Caplis handles a wide range of issues on behalf of her clients including separation and divorce, division of property, custody (including third party custody disputes involving grandparents), child support, alimony, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and adoptions.
Ms. Caplis believes in the importance of advising clients of the many options available to resolve a family law dispute. Ms. Caplis has been collaboratively trained to represent clients and is a staunch advocate of this form of alternative dispute resolution, when appropriate.
The basic tenants of the collaborative practice include doing what is best for the family and working together as a team to address issues in a format where the parties have a direct voice. As a result of the process, parties are more likely to reach sustainable agreements and to co-parent amicably moving forward. “The respectful, thoughtful approach to resolving family law issues during an exceedingly difficult time in a client’s life is what drives my strong commitment to the collaborative practice. For these reasons, it is an honor to serve as the President of CPB, where I hope to increase the visibility of collaborative law throughout the Baltimore area,” said Ms. Caplis.
About Collaborative Professionals of Baltimore
CPB is a group of interdisciplinary professionals dedicated to resolving conflicts in the areas of family law. According to CPB’s website, the collaborative practice is a non-adversarial process with specially trained lawyers, mental health professionals, and financial professionals who assist the parties to reach mutually agreeable settlements that are created by the people involved, not the court. In a collaborative case, everyone works together with the commitment of all participants who will engage in a process requiring full disclosure of information by the parties and a commitment to resolve all issues without resorting to litigation. The Collaborative Process is a form of alternative dispute resolution that is especially effective for individuals whose relationship will continue after their separation or divorce is finalized. The members of the Collaborative Professionals of Baltimore are committed to offering clients a respectful way to resolve conflict. It also has the potential to reduce the cost of the overall divorce by streamlining the discovery of financial and other relevant information.
