Have your family law blog on my blogroll

In the next month or two I will be refreshing my website’s layout for the first time since 2009. Anyone with a family law blog who wants to go on my blogroll (and who is willing to provide a link to my blog on their website) should email me.

I’m a Super Lawyer

The Silver Anniversary of my law practice

Today, November 18, 2018, marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of opening my own law practice. It was a somewhat compelled decision that ended up being among the most consequential–and best–of my life. A quarter century of doing anything encourages reflection. This blog is my attempt to share insights into the path from hopeful-but-terrified greenhorn to contented […]

Hilton Head Plantation Prop. Owner’s Ass’n, 317 S.C. 200, 452 S.E.2d 619 (Ct.App.1994) within two years of being […]

The men don’t know but the little girls understand[1] (or, I took my nine year old daughter to a rave and neither of us ended up regretting it)

A desire to participate in communal ecstatic experiences would appear to be an innate part of human existence.  Almost every culture in every time has had some version of this: generally involving music and dance–rhythm appears to be hardwired; often involving mass invocations of fealty to a deity or ideology; frequently involving a Dionysian use […]
