A couple months ago Ruport Murdoch filed divorce papers to separate from his wife of 14 years, Wendi. His wife of course hired an attorney to defend her in the divorce and then after about a month fired that attorney and hired a new one. After that change of counsel a lot of people speculated that the change meant that things were going to get ugly in the divorce and both parties were going to fight to the bitter end.
Why Hire an Impartial Attorney?
While it’s true that Wendi’s new counsel has represented a host of big named clients in divorces from their rich businessmen husbands, the reality is that the real reason for the change doesn’t really signal anything about what is going to happen in the divorce. Mrs. Murdoch’s former counsel was the attorney that represented her when the couple drafted their initial prenuptial agreement and since that time she has become friends with the Murdochs so a need for a more impartial counsel was necessary. One of the benefits of having an attorney represent you in any type of matter is to have a very logical and a very removed third party to help counsel you on how to proceed without having to deal with all the emotional aspects and connection in a divorce, criminal case, or any other emotional legal matter.
