What advice would you offer a lawyer who is starting out?
Not to compromise on thoroughness and professionalism. To delve deeply into reading about legal material and rulings every time that a legal question comes onto the agenda, to read extensively about laws and regulations, to keep up to date with every new ruling, and not to be concerned about bringing up creative and innovative claims.
What is important to remember even in difficult times?
The clients in the area in which we are involved are in the throes of one of the most difficult periods of their lives. It is important to remember that during times of distress your fate is in your hands and that a crisis is an opportunity to build something new and better. Our ability to control our lives and make the right choices allows us to build a better future and frequently the divorce process is an opening to a much better period than that which preceded it.
