Attorney-at-Law, M.A. in Spiritual Psychology
As an attorney practicing since 1996, dealing primarily with divorce cases (and through his own experience of divorce) Michael has developed an intimate understanding of the legal issues and emotional dynamics people face as they navigate through the process of separation.
Having seen the debilitating effects the old paradigm of divorce had waged on individuals, families, and communities, Michael founded Conscious Divorce as an alternative to conflict focused family law.
It has been his mission to transcend this outdated model and to help raise awareness on every level possible, so his clients can make well-informed decisions from a place of empowered reflection, not out of fear, or simply because it’s what their lawyer tells them to do.
Conscious Divorce Founder, Michael C. Cotugno, Esq.
Michael views his role as a divorce lawyer as an opportunity to bring personal growth and healing into the lives of his clients, which prompted him to obtain a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.
Utilizing his holistic approach to conflict resolution, Michael strives to empower his clients to see the healing opportunities in every situation while providing them with the legal facts and guidance they need during the divorce process.
Michael helps clients navigate the challenges of divorce utilizing a heart-centered approach to issue resolution, offering comprehensive family law services from mediation, coaching, collaborative representation, even integrity focused litigation.
