Angeline Lindley Bain is an attorney at Goranson Bain who focuses her practice in major areas of family law. This includes divorce, child custody and support, property division, alimony and maintenance asset, paternity, post-martial agreements and more.

It was through this experience which led her to believe strongly in interest-based settlements of family conflict. She encourages her clients to consider the collaborative law process, because it allows them to fashion their own solutions and begin anew in the best manner possible.
