I am a family law attorney and one of the greatest lessons that I have learned is to be focused on your own family. My mentor was/is Mark Chinn. Mark is one of the best family law attorneys in the Country. He is smart, tough, knows the law and knows how to persuade. However, one of his best qualities is that he focuses on his own family. I have worked with Mark for over 9 years.
During that time there was rarely an instance where he missed one of his children’s events or milestones; be it sports, school, or otherwise. He made it a priority to be there and they knew it.
He would not let his schedule and other person’s issues – which could usually wait and rightly should- interfere with his priorities,for all of the right reasons. By focusing on your own family and keeping them in focus, you will stand a much better chance of avoiding someone like me, a divorce attorney. I hope you do.
