Collaborative Family Law
Mention the words “Collaborative Family Law” to a Texas family lawyer, and one of the first names that comes to mind is Norma Levine Trusch of Houston. That’s because Norma has been a leader in bringing collaborative law to Texas – a divorce process that respects her client’s values, pocketbooks and privacy. Having spent most of her 32 plus years as a family lawyer trying to bring civility and humanity to her divorce practice, Norma now trains other lawyers to lead their clients through this non-adversarial approach to resolving family disputes. As an experienced litigator, Norma knows how painful and expensive a battle in the family courts can be, and is committed to keeping her clients out of that arena.
The same impulses also brought Norma to training as a mediator. Norma is convinced that couples who are willing to commit to a dignified and respectful approach to solving problems can find solutions with the assistance of a trained neutral who brings to the table a thorough knowledge of the law and an understanding of the value of a negotiated settlement.
Clients turn to Norma when they are looking for an attorney who is knowledgeable and compassionate, dedicated to applying her experience and talents to the settlement of family disputes in a manner that protects their interests while preserving those values and relationships that are most important to the client.
