Is there a summons in that bouquet?
Valentine’s Day turns some clients’ hearts to love. The others’ turn to stone.
If you’re married and believe today’s holiday has no lasting effects, consider the findings of San Francisco-based LegalMatch. According to the Internet service, which claims to match clients with thousands of attorneys each month, the number of people seeking divorce attorneys increases significantly both immediately before and after Valentine’s Day.
LegalMatch Vice President of Marketing Don Keane told Forbes.com that requests for divorce lawyers rose 36 percent in 2005 during the two weeks before and after Feb. 14. In 2004, Keane said, there was a 28 percent increase, and a 34 percent increase in 2003.
But enough of this adversarial stuff. Happy Valentine’s Day to one and all.
