  5. DON’T LET FEAR AND...

My job as a family law attorney is to try to help people get through the worst time in their lives. Their most personal relationship is crumbling – the one they thought would last forever. They are afraid for their children. They are forced to divide assets that they may have slaved their lives away to accumulate. They fear what the future might look like and wonder how they will survive. Their whole world is being torn apart. They feel powerless. 


In difficult times it is easy for us to get caught up in fear, anger, and all the negatives, and lose sight of the fact that family, friends, good health, and a connection to our community are our truest sources of riches.

We need to remember that while we cannot control outside circumstances, or how other people may act, we do have the power to control our own attitudes. This power is something that can never be taken from us. Despite our current difficulties, we can focus on the positive aspects of our lives. We can try to be more forgiving of ourselves and others. We can take small steps to live a healthier lifestyle. We can be grateful for what we do have. This certainly isn’t an easy task, but it’s the key to being able to weather the storms of life.


Finally, “being of service” is the ultimate cure for fear, anger, resentment, and self-pity. Helping others enables us to put our own life in perspective. It reminds us that we are not alone in our suffering. There are many others whose lives are even tougher than ours. By stepping up and showing kindness and compassion, we can ease the pain of others  — and heal ourselves in the process. Being of service empowers us and allows us to move forward.

If you are caught in the downward spiral of a crumbling relationship and negative thinking, I’m here to tell you that there is a beacon of light at the end of the tunnel. Your problems are only temporary, and there are things you can do to get you through this difficult time. Focusing on what is good in your life; maintaining a positive attitude; exercising; getting enough sleep; eating well; turning to family, friends, and faith; becoming active in your community; getting counseling; trying to be more forgiving of yourself and others; being of service; and being grateful for what you have, instead of being resentful for what you lack — these are the things that will get you through. And one day, you may just wake up and discover that you have become a stronger and happier person than ever before.

Client Reviews

Very honest

November 2009 I retained Mr. Frank almost two years to represent me in a visitation modification filed by my ex-husband. Mr. Frank quickly and efficiently became familiar with my case and was very honest about all the potential results that could occur. I truly feel that Mr. Frank had my children’s best interests in mind…
