Q&A with Emily Rubenstein
How do you help clients through such a difficult time?
It takes a very specific balance of empathy, sensitivity, and at times, tough love. Divorce can feel overwhelming. Clients need personal attention and a non-judgmental ear. They also need plain answers to complex family law and divorce questions.
Because divorce is emotional, part of my job is to help clients make smart decisions through the cloud of emotional discomfort. My job is to protect my clients and guide them to best possible result.
