A little off-topic today, but this article ran in the Plano newspaper today about me. I entered the Souperbowl Challenge hosted by NorthPark Center and benefitting the Dallas Junior Forum, held last week. I won third place for my Hearty Corn Chowder and first place for my Tortilla Ranch Stew. I created both receipes myself. The awards ceremony was hosted by Chef Dean Fearing, a local Dallas legend.
It was fun to meet him and have him taste my creations. Being a Dallas divorce lawyer can be stressful; after all, I deal with clients who are going through some of the toughest days of their life. Being creative in the kitchen helps me to relax from a stressful day.
Here’s a couple more testimonials from happy clients:
“Ladies, I appreciate both of you very much and you have truly helped me through a lot both legally and otherwise.” M.M.
”I would like to take this moment to let you and your team know how great you were to me. This was the biggest and scariest thing I have ever done, and you helped me get through it. You did a tremendous job keeping my wishes first and your team communicated with me so well that I felt that you were more than just my attorney… you were my friend. Thanks so much for everything you did!” Z.M.
Welcome to The May Firm weblog. I hope you will find the information posted here useful and informative. I am a Dallas divorce lawyer and a Texas family law specialist.
Divorce can be a complex process that affects just about every aspect of your life, from financial to emotional, physical to legal. Unless you have been married a short time and have no property, assets or kids, your divorce may be more complicated than you expect. The central figure in your divorce (besides the obvious you, your spouse and kids) is your lawyer and her staff. But assembling the best team to assist you through the process can help achieve your goals for the divorce more efficiently.
Financial planners (here’s one) can be useful in helping prepare budgets and examine the cash flow needed after divorce. Accountants (here’s one) can help with tracing assets for characterizing as community or separate property and valuing business assets. A therapist can help you with the emotional turmoil of divorce. A litigation coach can help you navigate the waters of testifying and making strategic decisions. Sometimes private investigators (check this out) are necessary to discover certain information. And, forensic computer specialists may be useful to trace information contained on a hard drive.
