Janet Brumley is particularly interested in collaborative law and has written a book on the subject called "Divorce without Disaster: Collaborative Law in Texas" and trains other lawyers in Texas and across the nation in collaborative practice. She has been interviewed and cited in numerous newspaper articles and television programs on the subject of collaborative practice and has served as the chair of the Dallas Alliance of Collaborative Family Lawyers. As a family law litigator, she has seen the damage litigation wreaks on Texas families and has eagerly embraced collaborative law for handling family law matters outside the courthouse. Her enormous caseload of successfully negotiated collaborative law matters has reinforced her belief in this process.

As a wife, mother and grandmother, she is committed to the advancement in law of the sanctity of the family. It is her belief that although divorce may be the best and inevitable answer between husband and wife, the family unity needs to be restructured, not destroyed. Too frequently the enmity incurred by the process of litigation destroys the last remnants of the family unit held together by the parents for the sake of the children.

Janet Brumley is also trained in mediation and serves as a mediator for both litigation and collaborative law cases.
