Generally, I subscribe to the idea that, if it feels like you are getting screwed, chances are good that you are getting screwed. Of course, you may just be experiencing buyer’s remorse, or the fear of the unknown, or, you may be actually getting screwed. I’ve had a run of cases in which folks are […]

Written by: mycasewebsites2
Category:

One of my favorite phrases from my time with the 20th Special Forces Group (Airborne) is: “cut sling load.” When a helicopter is used to transport heavy equipment, sometimes the load creates a hazard for the aircraft. If the hazard is bad enough, the crew chief will give the command, “Cut sling load!” The cargo […]

Written by: mycasewebsites2

I don’t normally write these posts while sitting in court. However, when inspiration hits, it’s normally good to go with it. My client today was victimized.

Accepting the realization that all of the promises, commitments, dreams, and expectations of your marriage are over, if done properly, requires a great deal of introspection and self examination. Even so, once you begin the process, you’ll find that everyone has an opinion, myth, or misconception that they’re happy to […]

Category:

Ah, the issue of marital property and equitable division…it’s what’s on everyone’s mind for Christmas! I regularly engage clients who have, over the years of their respective marriages, become comfortable with purchasing or owning property to which neither party is titled in any way. They “rent-to-own,” without a contract. They agree to allow the marital […]

The age-old question, put to music and lyrics by The Clash…”should I stay, or should I go?” Once you hear the words, “I want a divorce,” staying in the marital residence or going somewhere else is just one of the crucial decisions your face during the emotional tempest brought on by the impending demise of […]
