Attorney Concetta Spirio Speaking at the New York State Bar Association’s (NYSBA) Annual Meeting on LGBTQ Issues in ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution)

Posted On: January 24, 2023

Proud to have participated on a panel today speaking at the New York State Bar Association’s (NYSBA) Annual Meeting on LGBTQ Issues in ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) and how our community is better served by ADR!

LGBTQ+ issues have arisen more and more frequently in arbitration and mediation. Those issues include implicit bias of the arbitrators and mediators, and involve workplace issues, family law matters, trusts and estates, among others.

Want To Get A Divorce? Here's What To Do First, According To Lawyers

Posted On: January 24, 2023

As I have stressed many times in the past, alternative disputed resolution processes, such as Mediation and Collaborative Divorce, are the better paths to take to resolve conflicts outside the court system.  Notwithstanding what these lawyers think, you should first research a divorce lawyer...my suggestion is to first look into alternative disputes professionals like mediators and collaborative divorce attorneys.  I would even go so far as to seek out a collaborative divorce lawyer first, since if you are not aware of how the processes work, you will at least get the perspective of what happens in litigation verses mediation and collaborative divorce.  They can help guide you on what is best for you and your family.

Here's What Parents Should Know About Minimizing The Impacts of Divorce - From A Divorce Attorney Who Represents The Kids

Posted On: January 17, 2023

Once again, I always urge people to seek the processes of mediation and collaborative divorce, not only for a more holistic approach to their dissolution of their marriage, but to save their children and family from the severe impacts of a litigated divorce.  The collaborative process includes a mental health professional who acts as a family specialist to help a family sort through the issues regarding their children, custody and parenting time.

This article also speaks about how this attorney represents children and gives them a voice in the court system.  What I would suggest to you is that having to put your children in the hands of an attorney to begin with is in and of itself a traumatic experience for a child.  If you really want to consider avoiding the impacts of divorce on your children, you need to think of the alternative dispute resolutions of mediation and divorce that will protect children from the traumas of divorce.

Michelle Obama's Brutally Honest Marriage Advice: "Prepare Yourself For" Discomfort

Posted On: January 09, 2023

As depicted by Michelle Obama’s brutal honesty, marriage is work and not always 50/50.  It's more of a pendulum that changes from time to time; one giving more at one point and one giving less at another point, but the bottom line, as she depicts, is that you have must be prepared to be truly uncomfortable and recognize that a marriage is difficult work and there will be times where there will be arguments.  It's how you handle those arguments and move forward that matters...and compromise plays a big role.  This article also poses some important questions for a couple to consider.

Kathy Whitworth, The Winningest Golfer in History, Dies at 83

Posted On: January 03, 2023

I find it amazing how many times there are exceptional women in sports and in other areas who have broken records but are never included in conversations when they talk about the best records and male achievers.  Here is a perfect example:

Kathy Whitworth is the winningest golfer in history - period - for men and women - but most people don’t even know who she is because everyone talks about Tiger Woods and all of the other male greats, without giving recognition to a woman who has done just as well or better.

Her 88 wins are 6 more than Sam Sneed and Tiger Woods, who hold the record for the men’s game.

As this article depicts, Kathy was a champion in the truest sense of the word, both on and off the golf course.  She was an inspiration to many women, and was amazingly kind and generous, not only with her time but also in sharing her skills.
