It is no secret among legal and mental health mediating professionals that the opportunities we enjoy to serve people in economic and emotional crisis pay dividends far beyond merely disengaging from the role of lawyer/warrior or therapist/evaluator that dominated our early careers.
“I know that you have a hundred complex cases, Against God in court, But never mind wayfarer Let’s just get out of this mess And pray to be loving and humble….”
- Hafiz, From Translations of Daniel Ladinsky “The Gift: Out of this Mess”
If you are considering or facing a divorce, I invite you to think outside the box. You alone have the ability to define your experiences upon separating your affairs from those of another whom once you loved. Seek out lawyers who aspire to be peacemakers rather than warriors. Destruction is easy: Set a brave new course instead.
