Collaborative Law Attorney
Collaborative Family Law is a court approved divorce resolution process in which the attorneys and parties are committed to working together to resolve their case without court intervention or expensive litigation costs. The lawyers and parties agree at the beginning to settle their case outside of court and by working together to do this. Even if they are not happy with one another, they agree to hire attorneys that participate in the Collaborative Law Process and will encourage and help them to settle their case fairly and without expensive litigation costs. The process is meant to save time, money and emotional stress. Rick Rabbin has been trained in this process and is a member of the Ventura County Collaborative Law Professional organization.

Attorney as Divorce Advisor / Consultant
Rick Rabbin offers consultations to people in need of legal advice but who cannot or do not want to hire an attorney to represent them. This is billed at an hourly rate on a “pay-as-you-go” plan. The attorney does not represent the individual in this situation, but rather assists and guides her/him through the process with whatever information is needed. The individual comes to seek out this guidance and information whenever it is desired. Sessions are billed by the hour at half-hour increments for as long as it is necessary for the individual to speak with the attorney. This is charged on a hourly rate with no retainer required. The individual pays each time Mr. Rabbin is consulted. At any time, clients may decide to hire Mr. Rabbin as their attorney to represent them in their case rather than continuing on the consultation basis as described here.

In this way, they can be as creative as they like, stay out of court, and be masters of their own destiny. This service is charged on an hourly basis with no retainer required.
