Surprisingly, this is a topic that many lawyers fumble over. I am not sure why. Especially when it comes to family law matters, I think most people, including lawyers, want to avoid acrimony and contentious court hearings, so the impetus is to just agree no matter the result. I also think lawyers have a hard time explaining their value to clients, especially in family law cases.
The year has gone too fast. As we conclude another year, we give thanks to our staff; our families; our friends and clients.
