Adopt the “Long View” in Divorce

Adopt the “Long View” in Divorce

This weekend, my family and I watched my youngest sister graduate from college. It was a wonderful day and I am so proud of her accomplishment. The commencement speaker, Matthew Kelly, is a motivational speaker who discussed adopting the “long view” with the recent graduates. He discussed how as individuals and as a society, we are increasingly focused on the here and now when…

There are even fewer that focus solely on criminal law. A discussion…

How Waterfront Park Can Lead to Positive Change

Droves of criminal teenagers swarming Louisville like the zombie mobs in the Walking Dead. Media portrayals of teen mobs at Waterfront Park brought those images to my mind. Our community is rightfully concerned about safety as well as what led teenagers to engage in such behavior. People are talking about carrying weapons in case of a teenager attack. At the office, we’ve joked that…
