my philosophy
00:06
uh as it guides me through representing
00:09
clients in divorce cases and parentage
00:11
cases
00:12
is that one everybody’s situation is
00:15
completely unique
00:16
i want to listen to somebody’s story for
00:18
a little while find out what’s going on
00:21
the law is you know applicable to
00:23
everybody the same way
00:24
however everybody’s um background what
00:27
they bring to us
00:29
is different and so it’s important for
00:30
me to understand and learn about my
00:33
clients
00:34
i understand what their concerns are
00:35
what their worries are what their fears
00:38
are
00:38
and then i’m able to better educate them
00:41
into
00:41
as to what to expect what the law is and
00:44
how it’s going to apply
00:45
to their situation you know sometimes
00:47
the law in one area isn’t going to
00:50
matter much to somebody but in another
00:52
area it matters a lot
00:53
so i like to make sure that i address
00:55
their particular needs that way
00:58
[Music]
01:02
one of the number one pieces of advice
01:04
that i do give my clients
01:06
is that you need to just relax a little
01:08
bit
01:10
know that things can take some time but
01:12
that everything is going to be fine
01:14
have some faith in the process nothing
01:16
happens at light speed
01:17
if you’re worried about something
01:19
happening overnight while you’re
01:21
sleeping it just doesn’t work that way
01:23
and so i tell my clients you know it’s
01:25
okay if you have questions
01:26
concerns call me but don’t
01:30
sleep on worry nothing is going to
01:32
happen while you’re sleeping
01:33
i like to tell the story of um you know
01:36
the question that
01:36
people get asked how do you eat an
01:39
elephant
01:40
and it’s one bite at a time and so
01:42
they’re facing
01:43
this giant thing in their life that they
01:46
don’t know where to start they don’t
01:47
know how they’re gonna get through it
01:48
so i tell them just slow down and we’ll
01:50
take it one piece at a time
