Jeff Steen has a masters in education and has trained extensively in resiliency strategies and conflict management. An educator with 23 years experience, he is the 2013 state-wide winner of the Golden Apple Award for excellence in education.

Jeff developed the philosophy for Westside Collaborative Law. We are here to help you agree on a settlement that is fair. You are always in control.

Jeff experienced a divorce in 2004, when he and his wife paid more than $40,000 in legal fees each, only to end up with an agreement that was very similar to the agreement that they had before they started. As a result of this experience, he is determined to help other families avoid the litigation process.
