I have always been interested in matrimonial law. My parents were both psychologists, but I was too aggressive to be a therapist, so matrimonial law seemed like the logical choice.
I believe that I help people get to a better place in their lives. I build real relationships with my clients, as I become one of their most trusted advisors. I truly care that my clients and their children walk out of the divorce experience as unscathed as possible. Divorce is a terrible process, but I like to think that with the proper amount of attention to both their concerns and the law that I can make a bad situation better. It makes me feel good to know that I can provide that service for them.
As any aficionado of crime dramas is aware, Americans generally can’t be forced to testify against their spouses.
But there’s a good reason that Camille Cosby, the wife of scandal-besieged comedian Bill Cosby, is scheduled to be deposed this Wednesday in the civil defamation case against her husband by seven of his accusers, a legal expert tells TheWrap.
Scandal-magnet reality star Jon Gosselin is making headlines again. The Jon and Kate Plus 8 alum and father of eight is reportedly seeking custody of his daughter Hannah, 11, from ex-wife Kate Gosselin, who has had primary custody of their children since the couple split in 2009.
During a visit to her father’s digs last month, the tween allegedly told Jon, 38, that she didn’t want to return home to the family’s mansion in Wernersville, Penn., citing “cruelty” from her mother, 40, whom she says is forcing her to film new episodes of their brood’s TLC series Kate Plus 8, according to tabloid reports.
If the end of a marriage is looming, it can seem insane to be thinking about things like how to deal with that shared Flickr account, who the iPhone 6 contract really belongs to, and even what to tell your Facebook friends.
But treating these shared intangibles with less consideration than the traditional stuff can impact your divorce, whether it’s a Facebook venting session ultimately affecting a judge’s child custody decision or an unwiped computer allowing a vengeful ex to stalk you.

Getting a lawyer seems like such a grownup thing to do but in case you hadn’t noticed, you are a grownup with a career, making real money, starting business ventures, making life changes and therefore you may need a lawyer. But how does one go about finding a lawyer? Is it just a Google search thing or what? And what can a lawyer really do for you?
The number one way to protect your business from becoming a controversial issue in a divorce, is to enter into a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement which clearly states how a business would be valued and/or distributed in the event of a divorce.
If an agreement is unlikely to be signed by your spouse-to-be, then before you marry, you should obtain an appraisal of the business (to the extent possible) which may at least show what the value was entering the marriage, so any appreciation of the business during the marriage would be more clearly identifiable.

One of the things I like best about working in the collaborative divorce model is the interdisciplinary team approach. As I explain to clients, we can bring in a divorce coach (divorce therapist), a financial neutral, and a child specialist—all trained in the collaborative model. I tell my clients, “I am the most expensive player on the team. Why not work with less expensive specialists who do this type of work every single day?”
I think that the reason many couples divorce is that they “stop speaking the same language.” I therefore call the divorce coaches “the translators.”
