We at Mason Law Wish You a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

The holidays will be difficult this year as we continue under the threat of COVID-19, and the restrictions that follow from it. The Spokane County courts have indicated that the disease is not an excuse to deviate from any of the parenting plans. All parents should still be able to see their children as ordered, and that is a blessing in these hard and unusual times -- the blanket rule is keeping people out of court, and, hopefully, in the Christmas spirit.

I am thankful that I have so much word-of-mouth business that I have to advertise very little.  I like to think that it is because I maintain the spirit of reconciliation and understanding all year long.  Yes, I fight when I have to do so, and I fight well, but my real expertise is in finding creative solutions that meet the needs of all parties sufficiently that "peace" can be found in the difficult process of divorce or other family law conflict.  No matter how calmly or heatedly a case begins, sooner or later it ends.  And if parents can think of their children, or the husband and wife can think of the other, then the case ends better for all in the long run.

So, let's end this year, and enter the next, remembering that a relationship ending, or a new dispute being addressed, can always benefit from opening your heart to the interests and needs of others.  In other words, may you enjoy your Christmas holidays, and carry a bit of that spirit with you all next year.  Best wishes from Mason Law, Spokane, WA - (509) 443-4681.
