Family law is an area of practice that encompasses a multitude of issues and commonly crosses over into other areas of law. Family Law attorneys have to know more than just how to divorce people and manage their custody rights. Family law attorneys often have to know tax laws, business valuations, asset values, sometimes domestic violence laws, etc, etc. Then there is just managing the emotions and general affairs of the heart. The first step is to manage expectations and minimize conflict as early as possible and decide how to handle these types of cases. The goal of this CLE is to give some insight on knowing the difference between a high conflict case and just a high conflict person and what to do next.
Deanne Arthur graduated from Howard University School of Law in Washington, D.C. in 2009. While at Howard she received the CALI award for exceptional representation of indigent adult persons charged with crimes in the District of Columbia Superior Court. Arthur has worked for a high profile law firm where she has successfully handled top dollar settlements and several jury trials. She has a passion for defending the rights of others and being the voice of those that cannot speak up for themselves.
