In anticipation of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (in October 2013), I wanted to take a moment to highlight the seriousness of domestic violence and resources that are available if you or someone you know are a victim of domestic violence. Domestic violence does not discriminate. There are victims of domestic violence across every age…

Remember the game  of hot potato from when you were little?  You would pass around an imaginary hot potato that you would quickly pass on to the next kid.  The person stuck with it when you called “hot potato” was the loser. This is a similar strategy that people try to employ when it comes…

In recent months, I have had consultations with several clients who told me that they were seeking equal physical custody of the children.  While the well-being of the children is often the motivation behind the client’s desire for equal physical custody, sometimes the client tells me upfront that she wants equal custody of the children…

When you look around at your friends and co-workers, how many people grew up in the Capital District, and how many have moved here from somewhere else?  How many people meet romantic interests on-line who live in a different part of the country (or world!)?

First, how do you measure something as complicated as the demise of a marriage and attribute it to one thing? Second, Mark Zuckerberg isn’t walking into anyone’s home and making them do anything that they…

Many of you remember the “Dream Team” that represented O.J. during his trial.  While opinions may differ about why O.J. was acquitted, I believe O.J. won because of the quantity of the representation, not the quality.  Basically, for two years nine lawyers and their staff focused only on O.J.’s case. After 25 years, I still…

You need a separation agreement. The economy is bad and Albany divorce lawyers can be expensive. No problem, right? Google has an answer for everything.
