In 2003, I joined a family law firm as a legal assistant, working directly for an experienced family law attorney. In just four years, I acquired a keen interest in helping people going through divorce or custody battles. In 2007, I decided to join law school. I attended law school for four years on a part-time basis while working as a full-time legal assistant. I received my law degree in 2011 and have been working as an attorney ever since, with about 80 percent of my practice comprised of family law cases.
It’s my hope that this book will provide readers with an idea of what to expect and how to plan for their future—regardless of the set of circumstances they’ve encountered. It’s easy enough to search Google for the codes and laws that may relate to their case, but it’s a lot tougher to apply them in a meaningful way and plan for the future both emotionally and financially.
