Today’s Quote: Family Lawyers are Hopeless Romantics

Typical scene at a co-worker’s wedding? Yes, except for one massive difference: all of us beaming, sniffling, dancing women are divorce lawyers and our staff, turned out en masse to celebrate our paralegal’s wedding. Really? Aren’t we supposed to be deeply cynical? Aren’t we so blinded by the dark side of marriage that we can no longer see beauty and hope in a wedding? ~ Excerpt from “Hopeless Romantics” by Philadelphia attorney Margaret Klaw (Huffington Post)

First, Practical Paralegalism loves that the whole firm so joyously participated in their paralegal’s wedding.

Second, Klaw makes a great point about family law practice helping us appreciate the value of being good parents and partners. She sounds like a terrific (and yes, female) attorney to work for.
