Can You Serve Someone Through Facebook?

Apparently so—at least in New York. Here’s the gist of the story from the Socially Aware blog: In a little-noticed decision, Matter of Noel v. Maria, Support Magistrate Gregory L. Gliedman—a Staten Island, New York family court official—recently permitted a father seeking to modify his child support payments to serve process on the child’s mother by sending her a digital…

You’ll get the right information you need to make the right decision—and making the right decisions about the questions that matter most is pretty much the key to success in anything. There are books on…

Arkansas Voters Are Not This Stupid

I tend to be unpolitical—not anti-political, because politics obviously matters, and not apolitical, as though I’m somehow above the fray and don’t have to pick sides. No, I just tend to struggle with most political questions and can only hope that years will make those questions clearer. But I do know a little bit about what lawyers are supposed to…

Re: Your Crappy Lawyer Bio

Lee Rosen has a read-worthy post this morning about lawyer biographies (Spoiler: They’re crappy). (Most of what Rosen writes is worth reading, actually. His website is outstanding, and I particularly appreciate his (bifurcated?) approach to family law, where he has focused on the ends of the financial spectrum. He services either wealthy clients whose divorces are contested or low-income clients with relatively…

My First Pro Bono Case

This is the second installment of my first-year lawyer “firsts.” My goal is *to deliberately set* aside some time to look back over my first year as a lawyer. I’m hoping to learn; I’m hoping to be encouraged; and I’m hoping to encourage some other folks. It has been hard and scary, but it’s been wonderful, too. These posts are…

Lou Reed: No Estate Planning Idol

This recent short article identifies one of the lesser-cited advantages of using trusts for estate planning: privacy. In it, we are told all the finer points about the distribution of Lou Reed’s estate. Had the rocker instead used trusts, we would know nothing. Trusts are private, whereas wills (and the accompanying probate process) are public. Takeaway: Wills are what you…

Estate Planning for a Patriarch

The concept of stewardship is at the heart of our estate planning practice here at wh Law | We Help. When someone works hard for their stuff, we like for them to be able to keep it for as long as possible. And when they can’t keep it any longer, we want to put it where it should go. We…
