You know, I never thought that I was going to become a divorce lawyer. You know, I just never thought. Coming out of law school I was certain there were two areas I’d never practice in. One would be tax, and that I had kept my word on. And the other would be family law, but low and behold, you know, here I am a family lawyer. You know, I think I love the challenges of it from the standpoint of, you know, divorce is hard. Man, divorce is hard. I understand that both personally and professionally. You know, I got divorced back in 2003 and, you know, it was incredibly amicable. It was incredibly amicable. But what I can tell you is that even though I knew it was the right thing to do, it whipped my butt. It was hard.
You know, you are not at your best when you are going through that, even if you know that it is the thing to do. So I like to be in a situation where I can help someone achieve what their goals are both personally and with their kids. And help walk them through that process of a dark time and be able to show them that hey, there is light at the end of the tunnel. We’re going to get through this, and you just got to trust me, you know. Follow me, follow what I’m telling you and one foot in front of the other, and you know, we’re going to get through it. Unfortunately, there is no way around it but through it, but we will get through it.
