Need lawyer advice while going through your divorce? This is the place

I love listening to Seth and Pete provide smart advice that is not only legal in nature but practical in application. I first heard of them on Kate Anthony’s divorce podcast and found them refreshing funny but informative regarding legal matters. Their podcast became part of my morning ritual.

I have a great divorce lawyer, so I thought, until I listened to some of the Seth’s examples of how he handles legal matters in court. Granted, I still like my lawyer but Seth’s advice made me smarter about family court proceedings and decisions and more intelligent when discussing these matters with my lawyer. Seth provided information on how to interact with my lawyer and saved me lawyer expenses through his podcast instead of me spending that time and money on conversations with my lawyer.

In fact, with Seth‘s advice I ended up writing one page arguments for my lawyer to use in court. My lawyer actually said it was great advice and wanted to know if I was switching lawyers. If only I lived in the Tampa area instead of Washington DC.

Not to discount Pete, who is wonderful at keeping the information relative, humorous, interesting and it is great at moving the conversation along and responding with witty comebacks.

I will miss listening to their podcast once my divorce is finalized, which is happening shortly since my husband finally decided to sign the papers and accept my proposal. But I will probably find myself checking in on them from time to time just to brighten my day.
