After many years of feeling silenced I love my new found voice. And for those that are willing to listen I am thankful for it. Especially for those that don't judge me.

Actually your 3 stages is easier to understand, you can lump my remorse/pursuit/buy-back phase/honeymoon phase into your #3.

I'm curious to know if you have represented abused women in your practice. I suspect an abused women may feel more comfortable taking to a female lawyer. I certainly felt more comfortable with my female lawyer and we have since built a lasting friendship outside of the litigation. Although my Lead lawyer is male, and has an excellent reputation, he is not known for his "hand holding skills" . Hope to hear back from other members if having a male/female lawyer made a difference to them.

LV: As always thanks for that great link. You are more powerful than Google.
