I couldn’t agree more with the below quote - which raises a very important point. Whilst some clients will be entrenched in their feelings towards to the other party (perhaps with good reason), it is important as a family lawyer to understand and recognise that mirroring that hostility in communications with the other side, is not the best way of resolving matters.
It goes without saying that divorce proceedings and related matters such as finances and/or children matters are an extremely emotional time for all parties and we do of course empathise with our clients. As members of Resolution, we are committed to dealing with all matters as constructively and cost-effective as possible but likewise, ensuring we are protecting our clients' positions to achieve the best possible outcome and attempt to avoid Court where possible, albeit, Court proceedings may be required in some instances.

Lawyers must ensure they view the matter critically from a legal perspective and not enable negative behaviour, thinking, or emotions because feeding into the hostile behaviour does not help achieve a good result.
