The International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, a global organization promoting client-centered conflict resolution, has named Alisa Peskin-Shepherd, a Birmingham-based attorney, to its new Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
The committee’s members are from all over the world and will meet by videoconference monthly.
Peskin-Shepherd has more than 30 years of experience as a family law, divorce, and custody attorney; mediator; and divorce practitioner.
She founded her Birmingham-based law firm, Transitions Legal, in 2013 and has been named a top lawyer by DBusiness Magazine. Her firm also offers guardian-ad-litem services. Peskin-Shepherd also has special training in domestic violence through the State Bar of Michigan Open Justice Commission. She speaks and leads workshops on topics related to divorce, counseling, and mediation.
“I am proud to help foster inclusion and diversity in collaborative family law,” says Peskin-Shepherd. “Nothing could fit better with our goal of ensuring everyone gets a seat at the table to resolve situations to total satisfaction.”
Since 2001, the academy has worked to promote the international growth of collaborative practice, which brings together attorneys, counselors, and health practitioners to resolve conflicts, especially divorce and custody issues, in a results-oriented, client-focused process. It has more than 5,000 members in 24 countries.
