Helping People Separate Together
When Your Attorney is also a True Crime Writer
Q: Can you effectively represent a client in a divorce proceeding when you have competing priorities, like, for instance, a high profile writing career?
A: Absolutely. I am skilled at time management and communication. I listen more than I speak which allows me to really hear what a client wants and needs. Because I have investigated and written about dangerous, difficult subcultures, I have the skills to navigate conflict and challenge with diplomacy and poise.
Q: So, straight talk?
A: Exactly. My first priority is to build a solid foundation for the client’s family moving forward. That requires an understanding of what a client wants/needs. A divorce is the most traumatic, life changing experience a person can face next to death. My goal is to be solution-oriented, not conflict based. Since marriage is the most important career choice a person will ever make; how a person divorces will have significant bearing on the first chapter of their new life.
Q: Why should a client hire you?
A: I love to tell prospective clients “this is the part where you find out who you are.” Divorce brings out the best and the worst in people; I choose to focus on the best. My goal is to bring my clients to higher ground, to tell them “this is your new life. You get to start with a blank page and write your own love story.” I bring years of experience to the practice with negotiation/mediation, litigation and writing skills. I personally handle every call, email and consultation. I may not always write your story but I can help you find your voice.
