Rebecca Brannan Ripley said divorce lawyers have to embody every meaning of the title of “counselor” because family law requires compassion as well as knowledge of the law.
“The divorce process is going to be difficult. It may be one of the most difficult processes you go through in your life,” Ms. Ripley said. “What you will find as you work with me, however, is that you will regain a sense of control in your life. You will know what is going on. You will have answers. You may not always like what is going on or the answers you will get, but you will not be in this alone.”
