Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!

The 60 Minute Divorce

Here's a marketing idea for you:

A New York City law firm is touting a “60 Minute Divorce” for couples with uncontested issues, no kids and no property to divide.

The Brodsky Law Firm is offering to prepare divorce papers and file the case while divorcing couples dine at a nearby McDonald’s or Starbucks with a $10 gift card provided by the firm. “Walk in married. Walk out divorced (almost). And get a free lunch,” says a press release issued by the firm.

“After that, it's just a matter of waiting for the court to issue the divorce, usually just a few weeks,” the press release says. “There are no further office visits required, and no additional paperwork to sign.”

The cost of the uncontested divorce is $299 plus court, filing, process and messenger fees—which comes to a total of $699, according to the law firm’s website. Have property to divide? Add $99. Kids? Add another $99. Need spousal support provisions? That’s $99 also.
