About Katherine Miller

I developed a unique perspective in the practice of family law while litigating family law cases and working through my own divorce. Traditional divorce encourages resentment between spouses. My experience with non-traditional divorce gives me the ability to provide my clients with support and compassion they need to work through their legal issues. I think outside-the-box to achieve positive results for my clients and their families—solutions that work over the long-term.

Collaborative Practice and mediation are the focus of my work because I believe these processes provide lasting solutions. Because both parties agree to the terms of the settlement, the rates of compliance are much higher in the long run. Many of the techniques I have learned to work with and the conflict experience I have in divorce and family situations are transferable to non-family conflicts and I have opened my practice to include other types of disputes.
