Summary

Marguerite Picard is a Melbourne-based accredited Family Law specialist, a Collaborative Lawyer and a Mediator who specialises in helping couples divorce without going to Court. She worked in litigation for many years, and has experienced firsthand the ongoing devastation that the traditional divorce process can leave in its wake, which sometimes includes irreversible damage to family ties and relationships. Marguerite realised that there had to be a better way and found it in Collaborative Practice. With her colleagues, a Psychologist and Financial Planner, she established the Melbourne Collaborative Alliance.
