Certified Family Court Mediator and Collaborative Family Attorney
Bruce M. Poore, Attorney at Law
Rock Hill, SC
I believe that the traditional legal approach to resolving family disputes can
produce totally unsatisfactory results for you and your family and can be especially
hurtful to your children. I believe that the collaborative approach is a much better way.
This is your marriage. This is your family. These are your children. I believe
that you and the other party are better informed and better equipped than anyone else
to deal with the issues that exist between you. As your attorney, I will be committed to
helping you negotiate a settlement that is appropriate to and consistent with your

Collaborative Law and Dispute Resolution
Dale Dove, Attorney
Rock Hill, SC
I attended public school in Rock Hill, SC and graduated Winthrop University in 1978, with a degree in economics. The next year, I married my high school sweetheart, Susan. After graduation from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1983, I began active law practice in Rock Hill, where we, our daughter Beth, her husband, Daniel and our grandchild live as well.
My law practice is focused on Adoption and Family Law, Collaborative Divorce and Dispute Resolution, Will and Estate issues, and providing general legal counsel. I'm particularly interested in making Collaborative Divorce and Dispute Resolution available to families in relationship crisis, divorce situations, and child custody disputes.
I am a member of the South Carolina Association of Collaborative Professionals and the International Association of Collaborative Professionals. I'm also one of seven attorneys in South Carolina who are Adoption Fellows with the Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys, an international association of adoption attorneys. I am a 2009 recipient of the Congressional Angels of Adoption Award.
I taught business law at Winthrop University part-time for eighteen years (1983-2000) and served two four year terms on the Rock Hill School Board (1992-2000). I served as board member and then board chair for World Witness, the foreign mission-sending arm of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Denomination (1994-2000). I led The PointE, a regional youth ministry located in Rock Hill from 2001-2006. From 2008-2010 I served with the cold weather warming shelter for homeless men and women in York County, coordinated meals, and recruiting and training volunteers. I have also served as a volunteer teacher for inmates incarcerated at the York County Moss Justice Center, and continue to provide inmates with inspirational books and reading glasses.
In 2011 I founded Renew Our Community (ROC), a non-profit community effort established to unite the people of York County to renew broken lives (those struggling with economic poverty, addiction, mental impairments, joblessness, homelessness, and other types of social crisis) and to build up the entire community. ROC was created with a vision of “our community being our responsibility” and to encourage people to follow the way of Jesus in helping and serving others. As an extension of this effort, my service is focused on bringing affordable housing and the American Dream of home ownership to people making lower incomes.
Something Extra: For fun I enjoy landscaping, working on my 2005 Mustang, snowmobiling in the winter, and playing bocce on the beach. I even have my own bocce web site, www.beachbocce.info, where I've published rules and tips for playing bocce on the beach. I call it “bocce with a break.”
