Change Does Not Change Tradition

FROM JODI The Last Day of the Year. Back in September, our Team started a 90-day sprint. On each day in my big red diary, I wrote the number of workdays left in the year, all leading to today, this day. Today there are no workdays left in 2021. Close the book. We are...

Adultery—How Much Does it Really Matter?

Our divorcing clients come to us from both sides of the adultery fence—as the cheating spouse, and as the scorned spouse. What everyone wants to know is:  How much does it really matter? As you might expect a lawyer to say:  That depends! If the cheating spouse spent...

Find Your Bliss… At a Food Truck?

This time last year, I wrote about the lemons 2020 had handed us, and how we could make the best of the rest of 2020. It felt good to look ahead with fresh eyes, feeling revived about a new way to see our Pandemic-y circumstances. Things are feeling a bit precarious...
