T’Was the Week Before Christmas: A Divorce Poem

T’was the week before Christmas and all through the Courts

Our clients were happy, they were getting divorced.

The papers and filings were set out with care

In hopes that soon the judge would be there.

The litigants sat safe and secure at their counsel’s table,

Happy to rid themselves of their ex (so unstable).

Lawyer with briefcase and paralegal with file

Were snug in the courtroom, they were ready for trial.

When out in the hallway there arose such a clatter,

They sprang to their feet to see what was the matter.

When what to our wandering eyes should appear,

But an opposing attorney and his client in fear.

We watched the poor other guy pull at his hair.

We could see he was angry, his lawyer wasn’t prepared.

They took one look at our table, and their faces turned green;

It was the best looking divorce file that either had seen.

Lists of assets and debts, appraisals, budgets and credit card statements;

Photos of children, medical records, and receipts of child support payments.

The parties sat down and the judge took his seat,

That’s when our client’s ex began feeling the heat.

At the end of the day, the divorce trial was done.

It wasn’t a contest, Held Law Firm had won.

As we left the court house, happy client in tow,

They thanked us intensely, their faces aglow.

“This was amazing, you put up such a great fight,

I have my children for Christmas, and all is now right.”

This story is common and most find it quite pleasant,

To be part of it, you should set up a case assessment.

Divorces and custody, child support, too;

Mediation and wills are how we can help you!

But until you give us a call and you’re here in our sight,

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
