Divorce is never an easy decision. “Most people think about getting a divorce for two years prior to meeting with a lawyer,” noted Tracy Hightower-Henne.
“Every divorce is unique. We talk with clients about the different ways a divorce can happen,” said Hightower-Henne, who joined forces with Susan Reff in 2012 to form Hightower Reff Law. In a collaborative divorce, for example, the spouses and attorneys sign a participation agreement. Only about 15 Omaha lawyers, including Hightower-Henne and Reff, are trained in collaborative divorce. Clients are screened to determine whether they’re good candidates for the collaborative model.
Trust is important in choosing an attorney, Hightower-Henne emphasized. “You should be able to feel a level of trust with a lawyer after an hour. If you don’t, then keep looking until you find a lawyer you feel good about.”
“One of our goals is to help clients move forward in life,” Reff added. Hightower Reff Law has five associates, including specialists in estate planning and bankruptcy. “We’re looking to continue to grow in both number and practice areas,” Hightower-Henne said.
