We Want your Most Incredible Stories!
Family Lawyer Magazine is currently working on a Feature Article on the most unbelievable requests/behaviors/sticking points lawyers have seen in their divorce practice. We’re going to publish the most incredible anecdotes as part of the story; if we accept your submission, we’ll include your name and where you practice – free publicity for participating!
Deadline for submissions: October 30, 2014
As someone who works with divorcing people every day, we’re sure you’ve seen your clients make crazy, counter-productive, or just plain bad decisions – despite your best advice. During divorce, some perfectly sane people seem to go through a form of temporary insanity, and their ability to make rational decisions that are in their best interests often goes out the window.
Family Lawyer Magazine wants to hear about your most preposterous stories: from the case that fell apart because the clients couldn’t agree on who would keep the bath towels to the two weeks spent in mediation to decide on a visitation schedule for the family dog.
So tell us:
- What is the most ridiculous thing your divorcing clients have ever fought tooth-and-nail to get?
- What is the craziest “line in the sand” your clients have ever drawn?
- What is the most outrageous demand a client has ever made of you?
How to Submit Your Stories
We’re going to collect the “best” responses and share them in the next issue of Family Lawyer Magazine. Please send us 50-100 words about the most ridiculous requests/behaviors/sticking points you have experienced in your practice; email your submission to email@example.com by October 30, 2014 for possible inclusion in the article. You may submit more than one story, but make sure you’re just sending the “highlights” – no more than 100 words per submission! If we use your submission, we’ll include your name and where you practice with your story. (Please don’t include your clients’ names or initials in your submissions: we want to make sure they remain anonymous.)
We look forward to reading – and sharing – your stories!
