Practicing Family Law with Civility: Civility for Ourselves as Attorneys

By Elise F. Buie

Welcome to the the third installment of GPSolo eReport's series “Practicing Family Law with Civility.” This month’s we examine how to educate your client about the benefits of civility.

Family law can be a very difficult, emotional, and contentious practice area. A lot has been written about being civil to one another while practicing in high-conflict legal areas.

Civility in the profession and civility to ourselves are complementary, you cannot have one without the other.
