Because All Things Come to an End (Good or Otherwise)

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a post.  It’s been a very busy year for me.  Much of my year has involved a fair amount of scrambling to keep myself financially afloat.  I’ve also been engrossed in my own divorce case modification (yes, I have a lawyer…Bless her.  She’s doing my case pro bono because I am BROKE.)  I’ve also been involved in some other personal changes that have been time consuming, AND have dealt with health issues that have been debilitating at times.

Yup, I've got nothin'...

Yup, I’ve got nothin’…

So I come to this….My clients are as broke as I am, bless them.  Unfortunately for all of us, however, when they can’t pay me, I can’t pay my bills either.  At this point in my life I am finding that I can no longer afford to practice law–or at least, family law.  And since that’s all I know how to do law-wise right now, I’m leaving the practice of law.

Effective December 31, 2014, I am closing my law practice.  I still retain my law license, and have some cases I’ll stay on until they finish up (because they will conclude in January), but will otherwise cease to function as a full time attorney.  I’m looking for regular paycheck kind of paying work.  And I’m getting trained to be a private guardian ad litem, to work with kids in district court cases.

It’s really been a crazy run.  I’ve had some incredibly AWESOME clients….And some less awesome ones as well.  Divorces suck.  They’re sad, always, even if they’re the right thing to do.  I’m hoping taking a break from the practice of family law will help me lose some of the cynicism I have regarding marriage these days, and maybe help me regain some of my sanity.  To my AWESOME clients, I say Thank You.  You have made the practice of family law bearable for the time I have done it, and I will always appreciate the association with you and how you have enriched my life in intangible ways.

I’ll be keeping up the blog (probably better than I have been to date), and will still keep up with the law.  So if you have questions, or a suggestion for a blog article, please feel free to let me know.

Seriously.  It's come to this. :(

Seriously. It’s come to this. 😦

Google Ads for Other Lawyers on My Blog

Because WordPress.com is a free blog site, they will sometimes insert ads into my blog. Sometimes these are ads for OTHER lawyers that are NOT me. I would love it if you would use ME as your lawyer. However, you get to make that choice, and having ads does give you a better idea of the options for lawyers out there.

Until such a time as I can get the ads eliminated, please do not assume that any particular lawyer with an ad showing up on my site is in any way endorsed or recommended by me. I don’t know all of the lawyers in the area; I can’t speak to their ability or character. Should you need a lawyer, please go through the appropriate steps to make a good decision on who represents you. And if you need a refresher, or don’t know what those steps would be, refer to my blog post about finding a lawyer.

Suggestions?

I have plans to post in the near future on such legal topics as guardianships and sex offenses–specifically, what constitutes a sex offense, how one can commit a sex offense without really trying (specifically, teenagers), and what you can never gain legal forgiveness from in this life.  I’m also going to post about legal fees–why they’re so high, and generally what that’s All About.

If you have suggestions of something YOU have a question about, or would like to see elucidated by my oh, so sophisticated Legal Mind 😉 on this blog, please let me know in the comments section of any post.
