Attorney Greg Herman wrote series of articles I am linking here on the interplay between law and psychology for the Wisconsin Bar Journal.
Attorney Mark Baer wrote this article in 2011 which I found both wise and compassionate in its description of the divorce process. He states, and I agree, that the adversarial process destroys families and that the family courts are the worst place for couples undergoing marital discord to work out their problems. Coupled with that is the reality that people pay for “pit bull” attorneys in order to destroy their former spouse and former loved one, and if people weren’t paying for these services, there wouldn’t be a demand for them. So when people criticize the system, and the attorneys, they should perhaps also take a good look at themselves.
