(SAN DIEGO) – The Falcon Valley Group (FVG), an independent public relations consulting practice, has been engaged to represent the Collaborative Family Law Group of San Diego (CFLG San Diego), a nonprofit group of legal, financial, and mental health professionals trained in the Collaborative Process as an alternative to divorce litigation.
CFLG San Diego’s members work together to learn, practice, and promote collaborative processes for problem solving and the peaceful resolution of family law issues, with an eye toward preserving the emotional, as well as the financial, assets of the family. Its goal is to transform the resolution of family law issues through respectful, collaborative processes that protect the integrity and health of family relationships and eliminate the need of families to resort to court litigation.
Gayle Lynn Falkenthal, APR, President, says FVG will provide ongoing media and public relations support for CFLG San Diego to increase visibility and awareness of the firm’s services and expertise while educating the public about the collaborative family law process, including outreach through both traditional and social media platforms.
