'Gray divorce' - getting divorced later in life - is on the rise. Here's how an attorney says you should handle separation when you're older.

"Gray divorce," also known as "silver splitter" or "diamond divorce," refers to the increasing trend of late-in-life divorces. Kupicoo/Getty Images Nicole Sodoma is the founder of a family and separation law firm in Charlotte, North Carolina. She says 'gray divorce' may be caused by factors like longer life expectancy and financial independence. Older couples should consider division of retirement benefits and marital estates in the separation process. See more stories on Insider...

More thoughts on Virginia Mechanic’s Liens

Originally posted 2010-04-30 09:00:16. As we settled yet another construction case on the courthouse steps today, I began to think about what I should post to begin 2009. Of course, given the construction industry slowdown that is predicted, and the trend at construction projects around the Commonwealth of Virginia that looks to me as if payments will be harder to come by from Owners less willing, for financial reasons, to work with contractors, mechanic’s liens will be more useful, and necessa...

Musings On the LEED De-Certification Firestorm

Originally posted 2010-12-13 09:00:10. Much debate has occurred relating to the USGBC determination to use potential de-ceritification of buildings as an enforcement mechanism to assure energy reporting guidelines are met. As ENR reported last week, this new requirement has caused much wailing and gnashing of teeth. My question is this: Why the fuss? When you get right down to it, LEED is just a private rating system originally designed to give a snapshot of “green”-ness of a building when bu...

The Picky Nature of Mechanic’s Liens (or Why you need to count back from 150 before filing)

Originally posted 2009-03-30 09:00:00. On numerous occasions here at Musings I have discussed the almost ridiculously picky nature of mechanic’s liens in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The so called “150 day rule” found in Virginia Code Section 43-4 is no exception. The 150 day rule means that a contractor or material man can only include in a mechanic’s lien money due for labor or materials provided within 150 days of the date of filing of the lien or the last day that labor or materials are pr...

How to Find the Right Attorney in Georgia for Your Injury Case

Choosing the right attorney for your particular personal injury case is never easy. Legal dramas and movies taught us – wrongly – that the best attorney in town could try everything from car accident insurance claims to criminal defense and from antitrust trials to wills and divorce. It is not the case. Great attorneys can handle a few different legal areas, correct, but the one you need is the one that can prove specialization, experience, and significant success rate in the particular area o...

Q: What can you lien? A: What did you bring to the project?

Originally posted 2014-10-31 09:00:28. Mechanic’s liens are a powerful tool when used correctly. However, as I have discussed on numerous occasions here and elsewhere, these tools must be wielded correctly if they are to be effective. Another case in point occurred recently in the Hanover, VA Circuit Court. In Dallan Construction Co. v. Super Structures General Contractors Inc. (Harris, J.) No. CL08-473, Jan. 30, 2009, the Court considered the question of what can be included in a mechanics lie...

What Should Managers Do About Hugging?

More and more people are hugging at work, what’s the right way to do this? Image Credit: Konstantin Stepanov How about if we agree to talk about a touchy topic: hugging. Yep, even in this #Metoo era, the concept of opening your arms up and then enveloping a coworker in a big hug is something that is still done in the workplace. You’d think that all of this would be going away in our ultra-sensitive political climate; however, that is not the case. In fact, there appears to be even more hugg...

Profit from Your Idea with a Patent

A patent can be taken out on almost any new implementable idea.  It is not just about protecting your idea.  Your patents are part of your Intellectual Property (IP) and can be valuable assets.  Often a start-up company will be bought for its IP rather than its products or sales revenues.  Here are some tips ...

Be Careful in Contracting and Business

Originally posted 2014-06-06 09:00:34. Image via Wikipedia After an hour long phone conference with a client, I have had several thoughts, only a few of which I can share here (grin). The first is that my friends and clients in the construction industry are hurting, but need to work with an attorney to assure that the pain is lessened. The second is that more, not less, precision is needed in construction contracting these days. The reason for the first thought is that the construction ...

The Greek Parthenon and Your Career

One of the most important lessons for our lives and careers comes from the Parthenon in Greece. The Parthenon has been standing in the same location for almost 2,500 years and is considered one of the world’s great cultural monuments. It is largely because of the Parthenon’s multiple columns that the Parthenon has survived for so long. If you understand and employ the lessons of the Parthenon, you should never have any issues with feeling secure in your career and life. I personally have run my ...

How to Hire an Employment Law Attorney for Your Business

You might think the title of this post is a bit self-serving or even self-promotional. Is this post just going to be a backhanded way to hire me, an employment law attorney?

But over the years, I’ve had friends and colleagues struggle with finding the right lawyers for their business.  In some cases, my firm (Shipman & Goodwin LLP) might be a good fit for them. In other situations, whether because of conflict...

Be Ready to Lien in 2009 (but Be Careful!)

Originally posted 2010-07-30 12:28:30. 2009 is likely to be a year in which many construction liens are filed. As all of us in construction know, and as reported in the AGC SmartBrief, the beginning of 2009 and through 2010 will likely show an even greater downturn in the commercial and residential markets. These economic times will make mechanic’s liens, bonding and other proactive approaches to collection all the more important. However, you need to be careful in filing your liens, espe...

Thoughts on Standard of Care?

Originally posted 2017-01-01 10:00:24. I had a great chat Friday with Shari Shapiro of the Green Building Law blog. The topic of discussion was whether the general standard of care in construction that includes knowing and building to the building code encompasses meeting LEED benchmarks found in some but far from all codes. I posted onto my Tumblr and Posterous pages looking to get thoughts and got such a good reaction that I felt I had to post here. I can see both sides of this issue. On the...
