Last April, I was honored to be asked by Avvo (the most popular legal question and answer forum and directory) to speak at their annual Lawyernomics conference in Las Vegas about building a brand and growing a network. While at the conference, I also filmed a video discussing my own practice. See video by clicking here.
This experience required me to think deeply about what it means to me to practice family law. In the video, I tried to communicate my philosophy. In my view, family law cases are among the most difficult because they deal with such personal issues. Further, because a divorce, custody or support matter may be a party’s first experience dealing with the legal system, there is a huge responsibility in guiding them through the process and helping them achieve their goals in the most efficient manner.
Truth be told, as difficult as my cases can be, there is no area of law that I would rather be practicing.
