Weekends are an important opportunity to rest, recharge and reinvest in our mission to serve our clients, their children and their […]

Child Custody Terminology and Frameworks – The 3 Levels of Attention to Pay to Issues in your Case

The word “concern” is often misused, and most of the time willfully so, in #ChildCustody cases.

Child Custody Devotional – You will Know it by Your Fruit…

The Maker is never removed from the Made. Put another way, “you will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:16).

In Child Custody, don’t seek Happy. Seek Progress.

In his book, Zappos.com® founder, Tony Hsieh, wrote that ““[u]ltimately happiness is really just about enjoying life.” Ultimately, though, Mr. Hsieh ended up endlessly seeking happiness or the next thrill and surrounding himself with yes people who took advantage of his largesse. Happiness, if it is anywhere at all, is right where you are. Happiness, […]

Everyone slow down a little and take your time today. Let’s all survive Friday the 13th in 2020.

Thank you, Veterans!

The freedoms we fight to protect with pens and pencils in suits and ties are the freedoms you earned for us in a uniform. Thanks, Veterans! ????????????????????????????

Child Custody Devotional – PERMA-nent Custody?

Happiness isn’t just about feeling better, but that’s part of it. More positive emotions obviously correlate with well-being, but the problem is it’s tough to control our emotions and #CoParenting and #ChildCustody is chaotic enough without judging each feeling or reaction we have to something. ~ That’s where a model like the PERMA model, pioneered […]
