Our own, Tiffany Oliver Leigh, has co-founded and actively participates in The Divorce Options Workshop. Just recently, in the Bar Bulletin Dated June 13, 2012 – Volume 51, no. 24 offers recognition and information:
The State Bar, the Albuquerque Bar Association, the Collaborative Law Practice Group, and the Family Law Section are sponsoring the Divorce Options Workshop. The program has been initiated by divorce lawyers Gretchen Walther, Tiffany Leigh, and L. Helen Bennett to help New Mexicans navigate family court. “We can tell you with certainty,” said Bennett, “that there are better ways that will reduce or eliminate much conflict and cost. “The Divorce Workshop is designed to give people tools and options to avoid the expensive, time-consuming, public, and confusing court process. The workshop will teach people a method that has worked for many sophisticated clients who want peaceful, private, quick divorces. At the first meeting, attorney volunteers will explain legal principles and options and list the decisions participants will need to make. Participants go home, collect documents, and work out what they can. At the second meeting, participants will receive help resolving remaining issues and filling out necessary forms. The workshop will be offered the first Wednesday of each month from 6–8 p.m. at the State Bar Center. The program is free to participants. To register, call 505-797-6097.
We commend Tiffany for her generous time contributions which have helped make this pro bono workshop a true success. If you would like more information or would like to reserve a space, see flyer link above.
