“Kid in a candy shop” is a great way to describe how our outgoing CDT Board President, Julie Quaid felt when she learned about Collaborative Law 20 years ago. Her excitement to learn everything about the process and implement it in her family law practice became her professional quest. She trained repeatedly (still does) and fully immersed herself in the new, better, and less destructive way for families to resolve divorce and child issues. And, as same was consistent with her personality and lawyering style, she excelled. She became a leading advocate for the process and growing the process, taking on leadership as multi-term President of her Practice Group, Chair of the Dallas Bar Association’s Collaborative Law Section, Chair of the Collaborative Law Section of the State Bar of Texas, and finally this past year at the helm of CDT. She presents often on collaborative divorce, volunteering her time to educate others about Collaborative Divorce to help expand the use of the process with hopes that it because the most common way to get divorced. She inspires me to be a better collaborative lawyer (and person) and I know I am not alone. And while her year as President of CDT during the difficult period of COVID-19 has ended, she continues to focus her attention and efforts on future service on CDT and IACP committees and efforts to inform others about the wisdom and benefits of Collaborative Divorce. And probably signed up for another advanced training or two.
