A family-law practice is grueling. We deal with intense emotions on a daily basis. Highs are higher and lows are of course, lower.
The reward, however, is helping people, often miserable, improve their lives and circumstances post-divorce. And while we would love to think of ourselves as heroic (our clients often do), the truth is that it really is about hanging with it and just making it happen every day. True professionalism is just that–showing up and consistently performing under difficult and adverse circumstances.
As Winston Churchill said, “Continuous effort–not strength or intelligence–is the key to unlocking our potential.” True heroism is all about just being there when they need us.
