Divorce isn’t a happy subject no matter when it comes up, but in times like these, it’s even worse. What is already a contentious affair becomes ten-fold worse when the courts are backed up and tensions are high. 

No one knows this better than family law attorney Morghan Richardson. She’s worked her way through several different careers and has settled on the personal aspect that is family law. She has fought complex divorce cases and knows the range of emotions and experiences that come out of these situations. 

Listen as we discuss women in law, her own personal experience as a divorcee, and why this is one of the worst times for family cases. For so many marriages, having a break from “together time” is essential, and that’s simply not possible right now.

Morghan shares her views on the courts as they stand right now, why marriages are under so much stress in this time, and what we can do to maintain our sanity. This was a truly enlightening conversation with a woman millennial in the field of law. You won’t want to miss it.
