7 Reasons You Should Never Lose Hope In Dating After Getting Divorced

Comments are off for this post.
Dating after getting divorced can feel really scary. The insecurity of being older, divorced, and out of practice (for lack of a better phrase) all plays into the fear, anxiety and stress that dating after divorce can bring. As someone who didn’t get married until age 35, I dated a lot. Seriously, a lot. Let’s say I started dating in high school—age 16. That gave me 19 years in the dating scene before I tied the knot. I then got separated and divorced at 41 and dated after divorce for several years. I’m not married, but at 49, I met […]

Lawyers Make Formidable Litigants – Above the Law

Comments are off for this post.
Over my decade or so in litigation, I have seen all types of lawsuits and litigants. Indeed, I have litigated many run-of-the-mill lawsuits that were handled by the usual law firm cast of characters I am used to seeing in the courthouses in which I practice. I have also been involved with some lawsuits that involved nonlawyer pro se plaintiffs, which were extremely interesting matters to handle. However, the lawsuits for which I really like to grab the popcorn and sit back to watch the tactics and passion of the parties involved are those in which one or more litigants […]

Kissing After Divorce: Can You Handle It?

Comments are off for this post.
Kissing after divorce can feel terrifying. The first kiss I ever had when I was newly separated was memorable. I was literally shaking because I could not believe I was about to kiss another man who wasn’t my husband. I still remember vividly how conflicted I felt. On one hand, I was ecstatic. I felt young again, like there was hope for me to find love again, and that life was going to be great. On the other, I felt so guilty, like I was doing something really wrong. I actually felt very excited and nauseous at the same time […]

Three in four domestic abuse cases end without charge in England and Wales

Comments are off for this post.
Three in four domestic abuse offences reported to the police are closed without a perpetrator being charged, a watchdog has said, amid fears the figures have worsened during the pandemic. Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) said forces were increasingly using two types of “outcome” to close domestic abuse cases: the first being the absence of support from the victim and the second being a lack of evidence despite having the victim’s backing to prosecute. Zoë Billingham, the inspector of constabulary, said she was shocked that the figures, which covered the year to March 2020, […]

By Emmanuel Zvada LAWSUITS are unavoidable when you are running a successful business. Ask any business executive and they will tell you that there are appropriate situations where litigation is necessary.

Speaking at the Managing IP Life Sciences Forum last Wednesday, June 16, panellists during the session on global protection and enforcement strategies said counsel should be aware of whether injunctive relief is available and what needs to go into evidence gathering, among other things. “A key thing you have to remember in the US, for example, is of course that defendants have […]

Demystifying the Litigation Funding Process – Bloomberg Law

Comments are off for this post.
As third-party litigation funding becomes more mainstream, the general concept is now familiar: A funder will share a claimant’s risk by providing financial assistance in exchange for a share of the potential recovery. The benefits are well-documented, too: Funding allows claimants to hire their preferred counsel without coming out of pocket, helps ensure law firms are paid for their work on the case, and empowers these parties together to pursue valuable claims that might otherwise be abandoned. But practical guidance about how to get funding is still difficult to find. The process can be mysterious and overwhelming for first-timers. Below […]
