Staying Neutral: Avoiding Litigation in High-Conflict Client Cases
                                                                          

Presented by: Elise C. Greenberg, J.D.

 

Therapists naturally become very involved in their clients’ lives, helping them navigate divorce, custody concerns and even criminal issues such as child abuse. This professional guidance and potential mandated reporting hold tremendous power, and can raise a myriad of legal issues for therapists that they should understand how to navigate.

 

Elise Greenberg, J.D., is a partner with Brot•Gross•Fishbein•LLP and has over 20 years of experience in the practice of family and dependency law. She has participated in over one hundred evidentiary hearings and trials, and represented thousands of children and adults in related cases. Ms. Greenberg routinely trains attorneys, judges, and mental health professionals on issues involving both family law and juvenile dependency. She received her Juris Doctorate from DePaul University College of Law and is admitted to all state courts in California as well as to the U.S. Supreme Court.
