Our clients hire our attorneys to skillfully guide them through the transition of their family law matter. We understand that is the primary responsibility that must be met each day in our office.
Along the way, however, I noticed many of my clients’ lives were in a state of disarray—financially and emotionally. They had been living on autopilot for so long that they had lost track of how to live their life to the fullest.
That’s partially why I named my newest book in the Legal Strength Series: The Ultimate Guide to Divorce and Custody in Virginia: Quickly Get Back to Fully Living Your Life (which you can request a no-cost copy when calling our firm).
Fully living your life.
What do I mean when I say that?
It’s about mastering life’s fundamentals and then getting a little better, each day, at experiencing life’s joys.
Look, we’re all figuring this out together, and no one is perfect, but while you’re with our firm [and each month long after via our firm’s newsletter], we’ll occasionally pull you aside and suggest a book, a mindset shift, an action step that may powerfully improve your life.
For instance, before a newly divorced client reenters the dating scene, I strongly encourage them to read, The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman.
And so, Your Best Life is a practice area here at our firm, filled with blog posts, articles, videos, news feeds—I feel that strongly about it. While we’re handling your family law matter, we’re also encouraging you to regain your autonomy, your sense of self worth, and getting back to fully living your life as quickly as possible.
This is not simply a mention of my new favorite red wine, nor is it a paternalistic wag of the finger suggesting you should save more for retirement. This Your Best Life section, throughout this website and in our practice each day, is about empowering you to make real and positive improvements in your daily life.
