Reviews If You're in My Office, It's Already Too Late

  • Janelle
    Well, this was a terrifying read. I can see why the author says he doesn't get invited to cocktail parties. (He does, however, point out that he still gets invited to weddings. So there's that.)James Sexton has litigated over twelve hundred divorces in his career. He's seen the liars and the dirty, dirty cheats. The acrimonious and amicable. He's represented the ones blind-sided by the divorce papers, he's represented an actual pimp in a custody ...

    Come for the entertaining stories about divorcing partners, stay for the simple, practical advice for staying together and working things out.James is a divorce lawyer in New York City. He's one of the rare divorce lawyers who wanted to go into that field from day one (most wannabee lawyers are more idealistic and change their minds partway through or after law school.) He doesn't relish destroying relationships but they're already destroyed befo...

    I received a copy of this book from a Goodreads giveaway. I liked that this book had a very different perspective than most marriage advice books. The stories were funny and there was some interesting advice.

    This book is more of a what not to do. The author is divorced himself and has a very “divorce is usually the answer” approach to relationships. But this book is very entertaining and the stories of his various clients are a fun addition. I don’t personally see this book as a self help book but more of a “these are the various causes of divorce I come across, try to avoid this”.

    The book contains several examples of things people do or don't do that causes a rift in the relationship, how to avoid them, how to address them, etc. Communication, sex, and money are highlighted since they are common problems. The author makes things humorous through his presentation style and even some firsthand stories from his cases. Honestly I think any married couple would benefit from reading the book. If you're divorcing or divorced the...
