Every January, millions of people take the New Year as an opportunity to make changes in their life. I look at New Year’s resolutions as promises we make to ourselves to better ourselves in the new year. These promises can often span many different areas of your life and vary from person to person.

Without a doubt, one of the most stressful times of my life was the moment I realized that my daughter would soon be a legal driver. Any parent that has the “joy” of raising a teenager (or several, like me) already knows what I am talking about.

Hiring a lawyer is not an easy task. For the majority of people, the need for a lawyer is unexpected. Often times the circumstances surrounding the hiring of a lawyer are traumatic for the family involved. In my more than 20 years in this profession, I have had to not only represent families, but often times console them as well. The importance of this client/attorney relationship during what is sure to be an emotionally charged period for the family cannot go unnoticed.
