My friend really needs some help. Can anyone recommend a really aggressive good divorce attorney like a Selma Cash Paty, but affordable? Not sure he can afford Selma. He is getting royally screwed and his attorney just doesn't give a flip and has stopped fighting. This divorce has actually been over and done with for a while except for the arguing over money he is owed. Please help. I am tired of seeing my friend get screwed over and over again.
She tried to decimate me. However, I'm not easily scared. Most people would cower over some of her tactics. If you'd like to hear the incredible story or details of some of her favorite tactics, PM me. She is currently working on my ex-boyfriend's contempt case and doing an incredible job.
She worked BOTH of my ex-husband's divorces. I wonder if he got a repeat customer discount ...

Yeah, and more than a few bitter men.
Whim, I exalt you for being objective enough to see an attorney doing her job rather than an attorney out for your blood.

The second is that to love someone means that you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate." ~Rick Warren

Because it's particularly entertaining now and was not detrimental to my side of the case, a quick anecdote ...
I was sitting in the courtroom waiting for proceedings to begin in my order of protection hearing. I didn't bother hitting my attorney up to go, but Lucy was there for my ex. I took my parents as a defense measure.
The officer of the court checked me in, then asked Lucy (who had perched herself imposingly at the defense table to scare me, even though I already knew that orders of protection are not sorted out in open court) where her client (my ex) happened to be. She said blithely, "He's waiting for witnesses."
WITNESSES?!?!? WITNESSES FOR WHAT?!?!?
She then pops open her briefcase and retrieves a set of art nudes I did when I was a model (nothing pornographic, nothing offensive showing, not hardcore, in other words) and sauntered over to where my grandmother, grandfather, and I were sitting on the other side of the court room. As if it meant anything to the order of protection hearing, she lays the photographs one by one with a dramatic flair on the railing in front of my parents. They yawned.
About that time, the door to the courtroom opens and in swaggers my ex with FIVE of my coworkers. Granted, these were not coworkers with which I had any type of meaningful relationship (as in, no one was stabbing me in the back with this poor exhibit of solitude with the enemy), but they were people that filled the cubicles between his and mine at Unum. THAT pissed me off.
So Judge Payne is ready to hear our arguments. By that time, I am so angry about the whole coworker thing that I'm in tears and nauseated. Sam asks what's wrong with me, and I tell him about her little scare tactic. He turns to both of them and they (seriously) point at each other and say "It was his/her idea." Suddenly I didn't see a point in crying about it anymore because both of them were being firmly admonished by Sam Payne. Hon. Payne was pissed that they had tried to pull the coworkers into it and steamrolled any chance they thought they had about those coworkers "testifying" about the day I very loudly called my ex a "cocksucking mother fucker." (verbal abuse, you know ... it's just so analogous to chasing someone around with a shotgun and barring their exit from the home)
So, that goes down in history as the day I, alone, won against an big scary (and casually dressed) attorney. However, I'm pretty sure that she could bring lesser people to their knees. And, she seems to represent a LOT of men in divorces.
How did it all end? Well, the order of protection was discharged when the divorce was finalized. It still kept my ex from getting through the interview process with the Chattanooga Police Department. You were all saved from having a whack job trying for the force because of yours truly. Our divorce was finalized. He wanted the house, and I didn't want the payment, so he got what he wanted. He married for the third time in six years in 2006, and I watch the paper weekly with bated breath to see how long it will take her to bite the dust.
Wow-Judge Payne huh? He flat out told my friend up front he didn't care what kind of evidence he had, that the man always loses in these cases and he might as well accept that. Thank God he retired before this all ended and now there is another judge

Judge Payne did my mom's divorce and knows my parents, but it was totally luck of the draw that I got assigned to his division.
Guys have a bad time of it, especially when kids are involved. My friend is about to divorce her husband of 13 years with two kids. No one knows where he is, so we're hoping that makes things a lot easier.
Agreed. Beg, borrow or ste... uh, well not that... to get the best you possibly can, at what you are looking for (the best DUI attorney won't do you much good in a divorce).
They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds. I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in east Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball. The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs. I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator. David Attenborough, on crediting God for the wonders of the world.
It is about to come to light, Divorce attorneys in this area are working in cahoots with each other. There has been WAY WAY WAY too many cases with $$$$ or kids on the line that have drug out through the system to the point the husband and wife BOTH have wanted to end it. But the "lawyer" plays the greed card and convinces them to hang in there just a little longer and miraculously they wrap it up when one side (or both in some cases) runs out of money.
If there is truly a hell, lawyers will have a nice warm spot.

Sorry i don't have any such recommendations but , First resolve the matter by talking to both the parties if it both parties agree to stay together then finish it off.But if they deny to do so then hire an attorney or lawyer so that they will work for their separation process.
