The Lesson: Divorce doesn’t need to be the end of a relationship. Perhaps this may be the case in a romantic sense, but two individuals can still work together for the sake of their family and their personal well-being. In this podcast, Laura Wasser discusses not only how to survive a divorce, but how to emerge stronger on the other end of it, all while avoiding the negative influences of an industry predicated on the legality behind divorce.
Notable Excerpt: “It’s weird to me that we are more willing to talk about breast cancer than we are about divorce. I think when people go into it they feel so isolated. [My parents] divorced when I was about sixteen, and they were great test cases for what we preach, not only at the firm, but at [my online divorce service] because they did it in the most civil, amicable, respectful way, and I kind of grew up going ‘oh, why is this a big deal? We’re still a family.’”
The Guest: Laura Wasser is a successful divorce attorney and the founder of the online divorce service, It’s Over Easy.
