In this episode, family law attorney Irene King, who started her career in litigation, shares why she has revolutionized her practice to one that focuses exclusively on collaborative divorce. Irene brings a unique perspective to the listener as she shares her personal experience as a divorce attorney who’s parents went through a divorce after 45 years of marriage, and how this experience changed her view on how divorce should be handled.

Irene King is an experienced Collaborative divorce lawyer, NC Board Certified Specialist in Family Law and certified Family Financial Mediator.  She educates and empowers clients on how to divorce with respect and dignity without going to court.  In 2015, after engaging in divorce warfare for over a decade, Irene stopped litigating completely and founded King Collaborative Family Law, where she has a fully out of court practice and compassionately guides clients through the divorce process to resolve all conflict and issues with her clients’ most important goals in mind, especially when children are involved.  There are so many benefits of having a Collaborative divorce that one of Irene’s goals is to ensure that one day Collaborative will be the first choice for families in transition and adversarial litigation will be the last resort.
