That is passe, actually–searching the Internet from a pc or tablet. Most people (count me out) are very tech […]
Divorce lawyers are depicted unrealistically in TV and fiction best-sellers I was just reading a website by a colleague in Oklahoma and got the idea for this post about the differences between a TV divorce lawyer and a real life divorce lawyer. To be honest, while my TV viewership has increased ten fold over the […]
