Why Do We Only Take Divorce and Child Custody Cases?

I don’t know how many times people have come up to me and asked, “You’re an attorney. Do you know about defamation/car accidents/land sales/assault/DUI/business formation/etc.”

I politely tell them I have absolutely no idea about any of those things because I’m a divorce and child custody attorney.

Many will respond with, “But you’re an attorney aren’t you?”

At this point, I usually smile and try to change the subject.

What many people may not understand is law is a very, very big profession. Some lawyers (like me) go to court all the time. And some attorneys have literally never seen the inside of a courtroom. Some attorneys know how to structure big corporate stock swaps. Some of us know how to navigate the emotional and legal landscape of divorce. Each legal discipline has its challenges and its rewards.

So, Why Do We Limit our Focus to Divorce and Child Custody Cases?

There’s a lot of wisdom in this old saying: jack of all trades, master of none.

In essence, when you try to be all things to all people, you end up sucking at everything.

And we don’t want to suck.

Well, it goes deeper than that, actually. We want to be the best at what we do.

And to be the best, we have to focus on one thing and go deep. What we do is so complex on its own that if we divided our time with something else, we wouldn’t become excellent at divorce law.

So, we focus.

All our systems are built for divorce and child custody law. Our trainings are all about divorce law. Our communication system is designed for clients going through divorce. All our connections are with lawyers, commissioners, and judges who do divorce cases. Everything we do is designed to help us better serve people with a very specific need: divorce.

This level of focus and commitment to one area makes our client’s more successful. And, in the end, that’s what it’s all about.
