Getting divorced is never easy, but my divorce process was particularly painful. High conflict doesn't quite begin to describe it. The whole process took about two years; so, much longer than most. I can honestly say I don't know how I would have made it through that process without Staci's guidance and support. She was more than just an attorney to me. She was a source of wisdom, perspective and even-handedness that I really needed to lean on during the process.
Don't get me wrong, Staci has all the knowledge, strength and experience I could hope for and then some. I first worked with Staci at Sideman & Bancroft and chose to follow her when she opened her own practice. She created an MSA for me that's thicker than a novel and easily handled all the nuts and bolts of the proceedings. But what I learned along the way is that a successful divorce process -- one that puts the kids first and at least attempts to create a harmonious space for future communication -- requires more than just knowledge of the law. It requires an understanding of people and consequences. And I have the experience to prove it! I have since moved to a different state and have had some dealings with local lawyers here who just want to ship off letters and demands to my ex, all of which I know won't work. If anything they'll just make matters worse for me.
Staci took on a lot with my case and handled all the filing, all the paperwork, all the back and forth, etc. I feel very confident that my interests and the interests of my children were well represented throughout the process. Furthermore, I threw Staci additional challenges -- such as the fact that I decided to quite my job right as we were trying to finalize the divorce. (Yet another divorce, as it were.) Nothing fazed her. And she gave me great advice not just when it came to the divorce matters in particular but how to "set up" my life for the future; how to make sure I protected myself and my kids and the painful part ended and I could move on with a happy life.
I am happy to report my kids are doing GREAT and I am doing great. Thanks Staci!
