Why a divorce assessment is such a great idea

Since 2005, when I first began offering my divorce assessment, I’ve received lots of positive feedback from those that have taken advantage of this valuable resource – and it always makes me feel good, and reinforces why I offer this service. I’ve had other attorneys and friends tell me that I should limit the time I spend with clients, or charge an hourly fee, but that would be at odds with my core values and why I offer the assessment in the first place. Anyway, here is an email I received this week from another satisfied client (I’ve redacted personal […]

Additional Collaborative Divorce Lawyers I recommend

From time to time I meet with other Collaborative Divorce Attorneys that I recommend.  Why do I recommend my competition you might ask?  Because for starters – what goes around comes around.  Second, collaborative divorce is a new and emerging practice area, and frankly, there aren’t that many of us out there.  In order for my business to do well, I must have other Collaborative Lawyers that are willing to work on cases with me.  So the more of us that are out there, the more likely we are to all succeed. During the past week I met with Aida […]

More Wake County Lawyers I recommend

Loyal readers of my blog know that from time to time I recommend other lawyers for the good job they do, and because their vision of their practice is in line with mine.  Today I would like to recommend two lawyers that I know well, and have every reason to believe will provide excellent service to their clients at a reasonable and fair price. First is Daire Roebuck – She is an up and coming estate planning attorney.  She has worked with two very reputable firms in Raleigh and recently started her own practice, Roebuck Law, PLLC. Next is Walter […]

How to Prepare for divorce tip #1: Find the right lawyer (Hint – consider a collaborative divorce lawyer)

This is the first of a series of tips that I will be posting on how to prepare yourself for separating from your spouse, and ultimately, finalizing your divorce.  Today’s tip focuses on finding the right lawyer for your case – and specifically considering a lawyer that focuses their practice on the collaborative divorce process. During the past 5 years of practicing family law, I’ve learned a lot about how to handle a divorce case.  And one of the most important lessons I’ve learned is that who you choose to represent you and who your spouse chooses as their attorney […]

Why a Collaborative Divorce is right for you… and me.

One of the reasons many lawyers get a bad rap is the sense that they can’t be trusted.  You may think they are being nice to you, perhaps even showing some interest in you, but when you turn around they proceed to stab you in the back. I’ll freely admit that I have been burned by other attorneys that I thought I trusted, but time and experience have taught me to be careful when I’m talking to other attorneys about a case.  An experience I had this week illustrates what I am talking about.  I was hired by a client […]

Another Family Law Attorney I like

Earlier this week, I blogged about some other attorneys that I like and would recommend to clients and others who may be following this website.  Today I’d like to toot the horn of another divorce attorney in Raleigh.  Lawyers don’t generally give free publicity to their competition, but I don’t really consider this attorney – or any other attorney for that matter – to be my competition.  I serve a unique type of client – generally someone who is looking for an amicable resolution to their divorce.  Most people that come to see me will hire me, if not the […]

Other Cary Lawyers I recommend

As a Cary Divorce Attorney, I consider myself a valuable resource for my clients.  This means that not only should I be able to counsel them on their particular case and the law as it applies to them, but I should also be able to spot other potential issues and refer them to other attorneys who may be in a better position to help them.  In order to stay current on the legal market in Cary, I frequently meet with other attorneys and professionals who may also be able to assist my clients. During the past two days, I have […]
