Joseph C. Noto Bergen County Collaborative Divorce Lawyer Ethics

Joseph C. Noto, a Bergen County collaborative divorce lawyer, attended a ethics seminar presented by Larry Esposito, Esq., who is the president of the North Jersey  Collaborative Law Group.. Joseph Noto is also a long time Board member, as well as a member of this Group. Mr. Noto said that the seminar covered the ethics requirements of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, (the “I.A.C.P.”) when they conduct a collaborative divorce.  All of the members of the Group are required to belong to the I.A.C.P. and abide by these ethics requirements, in addition to the New Jjersey rules of ethics. Some examples of what are ethical concerns when conducting a collaborative divorce are: (i)  Are the clients in fact candidates for the collaborative law process?; (ii) Since the process works on “trust and transparency”  what do you do as a collaborative divorce lawyer when your client is unwilling to disclose material information during the process, or is in fact not telling the truth?; and (iii) How does a collaborative divorce lawyer withdraw from the process? Joseph Noto said the seminar was fantastic and it is very nice to know that all of his colleages in the Group hold to these same ethics when conducting a collaborative divorce.
