The Assertive Approach to Divorce Conflict

I am a huge fan of Bill Eddy, a lawyer and therapist who has authored several books on dealing with High Conflict Individuals at work and at home, and has created programs for courts to deal with such people. He is the author of Splitting, which I highly recommend to anyone who feels that they may be involved in a divorce or custody matter with a high conflict spouse or partner. I have attended trainings by Mr. Eddy and feel that his approaches are a wonderful way to look out for the best interests of children and protect individuals in high conflict cases.

How to Handle a Psychopath Divorce Lawyer

Is My Spouse's Lawyer a Psychopath? Is Mine?

Recently an article has been making the rounds of the internet listing the occupations most likely to contain psychopaths. Unsurprisingly, lawyers come in second on the list. (Police officers come in seventh.) It's not uncommon for someone in the throws of litigation to think that the lawyer on the other side is evil incarnate - litigation is emotionally and mentally hard if you've never been involved in it before. Lawyers, on the other hand, do this work every day and most have learned not to become emotionally entwined in it. So while the lawyers may seem cold and calculating, it may just be that they have seen your situation many times before and they deal with it much the same way a doctor may deal with a life-threatening situation they have been trained to address.

David Bowie Estate Planning

The world lost one of it's most brilliant artists back in January with the death of David Robert Jones (aka, David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke). His artistic reach included not only music, but also film, fashion, and glam culture. Naturally, as a fan of music and estate planning, I wondered what the Thin White Duke had planned for his estate. This article from the New York Times discusses, among other things, his bequest of $2 million to his longtime personal assistant, and his instructions that his body be shipped to Bali, that he be cremated pursuant to Buddhist rituals, and that his ashes be spread there. Farewell, Ziggy.
