Mark is a successful Pasadena (Los Angeles County)Family Lawyer who is getting the word out that this system chews up families. Not surprisingly (sadly) I hear from him that my fellow collab lawyers here in good old Orange County seem upset. (They are not big on ugly truths in OC... which is a large part of why I got out of the game here.)
This is the latest on his crusade, which I applaud:
The change is slow--but it is beginning.
I get an occasional publication from the California State Bar section for solo firms. (I actually only joined it so I could get access to the regs for paralegals because I was teaching "Paralegal Studies" at ITT Tech. A joy I will not go into here.)
I always read these pubs, because I am always curious to know what the legal profession is up to, even when I am mostly avoiding DOING what they are up to.
Mark seems to feel exactly as I do about the mess that is divorce in our California courts so I am ""blogging" his blog.
I have not read Phil's new book but I have known Phil for many years--I am even "in" one of his wonderful Books; "Soul Moments, Stories of Meaningful Synchronicity in a Seemingly Random World."
But the "blurbs" for this book have convinced me I should share them--and buy the book!
