Being a divorce lawyer has it’s down moments for sure. But more often there is a feeling of being able to help.

I recently “passed the gavel” to the new Family Law Section Chair, Maryann Foley of Alaska.  It was a heartwarming ceremony and many of the leaders in family law were there.  But perhaps more important than that ceremony, was our final Council meeting the day before.  While it was the last one I will preside […]

I have been so fortunate to have been able to serve as Chair of the Family Law Section of the American Bar Association for the 2011-2012 term.  I cannot believe the year is drawing to a close.  To have been allowed to lead this section, has truly been an honor and the highlight of my […]

Teaching makes us better

I just concluded my twentieth (I think? Maybe 21?) semester of teaching family law at John Marshall Law School in Atlanta. It is so rewarding.

Pamela

This week, family law attorney, and my boss from 1989-1991, Pamela Tremayne, passed away. Pamela offered me employment when I was a very young lawyer, in my mid-twenties. To work with her was very appealing to me since she was a former teacher, and I had much to learn. Pamela taught me the importance of […]

Where’s the silver lining? Maybe that in life, you should never give up? I think so. That’s the optimist in me. As a divorce lawyer, every day I see people who feel their life is collapsing. Baseball is, in the end, just a game. But what did we learn? The Braves and the Sox, both […]

NACVA seminar

Today I leave San Diego after five days participating in and observing how business valuation experts learn the ins and outs of litigation. There were over 700 attendees at what is known as NACVA and the IBA’s Annual Consultants’ Conference. On the first day I presented on hot topics in family law. But it is […]

Super Bowl 2011

So this entry has little to do with Family Law, and more to do with how this Family Law Attorney enjoyed the Super Bowl. Last year, as a lifelong New Orleans’ Saints fan, I had the chance of a lifetime to watch my hometown team go to and win the Super Bowl. It was an […]

Why a blog?

So why embark on a “blog”? The answer is that we do not want to get left […]
