When Lawyers Worry….

December 16, 2019

It was later in the night when I received the call. A family law lawyer needed a consultation.

What some folks don’t realize is that those family lawyers whose practice usually involves going to court (litigation), have very stressful lives.

They feel the pressure of their client’s or their children’s wellbeing. They feel the weight of their client’s crisis. Even they can get overwhelmed, although they will never let you know.

I am available as best I can be for those last minute consultations to facilitate problem solving, letter and affidavit writing, as well as developing proposals for resolution.

As most people know, I don’t go to court anymore, but is doesn’t mean I don’t want to help those needing to do best when kids are involved.

My involvement on a consultation basis just may help matters settle and settle more reasonably. So, I help lawyers. Even late at night, assuming available.

Even lawyers need support.
