One of the most difficult and time consuming (and thus expensive) factors in a divorce are the emotions that the litigants have toward the other party. Anger, hurt and disappointment impede well-reasoned decisions and result in more fighting than is necessary. Allowing the client’s emotional state to control the tactics and strategies employed in a divorce is frequently detrimental to the client. It raises the volume on the tension and prevents efficient resolution of issues; which can lead to lengthy divorce litigation and ultimately a very expensive trial. I believe it is essential that I have compassion for my clients, but that I also maintain clear focus and provide my client with objective well-reasoned advice.
Compassion – not sympathy – is by far the better practice. Compassion is the ability to recognize the feelings and emotions of another without necessarily sharing them. Though clients may feel justified if they perceive that their attorney has taken up their cause, the approach is certain to unnecessarily intensify the fight, and result in thousands of dollars of painful and destructive litigation.
