The March/April 2019 issue of GPSolo magazine concerns “Military Law” matters for the non-military attorney. The numerous articles will guide you on subjects that you may not have thought about, but which you might encounter in fields as diverse as family law, employment law, and health law. These articles will provide you with sufficient background information to begin to recognize the unique needs of clients who are military servicemembers, veterans, and their families.
Author Joseph A. DeWoskin explains to us “How to Represent Military Personnel and Their Families in Divorce.” Author Lindsay Beaver explains the importance of “The Uniform Deployed Parents Custody and Visitation Act.” Many of us may have not heard of this legislation. While we may have heard of “Military Service Benefits” (Karen Robbins), do we understand these benefits and related issues dealing with military service, such as “Dividing Military Pensions in Divorce” (Mark E. Sullivan), “Servicemembers Civil Relief Act” (Phillip J. Tucker), “Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act” (Katie M. Reynolds, Aracely Lopez, and Evelyn Saxton), and “Changes to the Uniform Code of Military Justice” (Sara M. Root)? We hope this issue will provide a path for you to understand these vital and important subjects.
The issue also contains articles on such practice management and legal technology topics as “How to Use Online Reviews to Develop New Business,” “Troubleshooting Basics,” and “What Are Your Practice Management Priorities for 2019?”
Please enjoy this issue and keep it for your future use and reference. I am confident that you will want to save the articles in this issue for reference in your library; they will prove themselves of practical value to you many times over.
