On Learning New Things: Video-casting and “Text to Voice”

When my wife and I go on a February “working vacation”, we have just a few “rules”: We select a quiet beach, St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Amelia Island, Savannah, Charleston, S.C.. or Jacksonville or Myrtle Beach.

Civil Litigation 101

CIVIL LITIGATION GENERALLY  My trial practice is primarily “civil” in nature. What are some examples of “civil litigation”? In family law, it can be a divorce action, or, when the parents are not married, “allocation of parental rights” (aka “paternity suit”); or, an adoption, or contempt, or modification of a prior court order such as child… View Article

A Curmudgeon Family Lawyer’s View of Parenting

  I’m mad! This is my 49th Christmas as a lawyer, and I am royally pissed-off. “Why?”, you ask? I’ll tell you. The world is filled with mediocre and bad parents; even ones who love their children are often “p-poor parents”. I see it every hour of every waking day. Most of my clients are… View Article

An unmarried couple that splits up will not… View Article

Recently, I posted about four “cool tools” for researchers, editors, and producers of content (which should mean most of us). I compared them to easy-to-use and maintain light battery-powered hand-tools by Kobalt and Stihl. It is a good analogy because those tools, especially Snagit, are light, easy to use, and affordable. I found the new… View Article
