The Collaborative Law Institute of Texas, a statewide organization of lawyers, financial professionals, and mental health professionals committed to collaborative law, has awarded its 3rd annual Gay G. Cox Collaborative Law Award to Linda Solomon, a Dallas-based mental health professional, collaborative law proponent, and collaborative professional trainer.
â€œI am honored beyond words to have been chosen for this award,â€� Solomon
said, â€œGay, as a human being, embodied the collaborative spirit and that makes this award much more meaningful for me.Â I feel very lucky and blessed to have been in the right place at the right time twelve years ago.Â It enabled me to help develop a model that is now helping families all over the world.Â Lastly, I continue to be aware on a daily basis how lucky I am to work with so many committed collaborative professionals in all three disciplines.â€�
is the first mental health professional to win this award, following wins the previous two years by Norma Trusch and Harry Tindall, two Houston-based lawyers with long histories as collaborative law proponents.
