CHERRY HILL, NJ, February 23, 2015 – Gary L. Borger and Bruce P. Matez, partners at Borger Matez, recently attended the Mid-Jersey Collaborative Law Alliance Spring Retreat to enhance their collaborative divorce skills. The program is recommended for trained collaborative divorce lawyers eager to learn cutting edge techniques to help divorcing couples separate without rancor and court battles. Collaborative divorce is a gentler, less expensive, and quicker way to resolve divorces by agreement reached by the parties directly but in the presence of and with the assistance of their attorneys who commit to settlement rather than litigation of each aspect of ending the marital enterprise and beginning life anew on their own.
Gary L. Borger has concentrated on family law since entering private practice in 1977. Trained in mediation at Harvard Law School, Gary offers clients the option of mediating rather than litigating family law disputes between spouses, domestic partners, or significant others.
