And as I told you before, I have done lots of business divorce cases, brothers, cousins, mothers and daughters, everything. This one was cousins. I represented the majority owner. His cousin and he had helped start this company. They were doing okay, but the cousin was distracted and didn’t really wanna be part of it, and I got involved to separate him from the company. Took about a year, lots of threats of lawsuits, never went to court, a year of negotiations. I got my guy out. Two years later, his business is worth three times what it was when he separated from his cousin. He got rid of the dead weight and thrived. That happens a lot.
