The other day a client mentioned she was worried her ex-husband would “use his lawyer to block me.”
The perception that the lawyers are chesspieces in some game between parties to a divorce came to mind. Apparently we are mere objects in the war between the men and the women. Let us hope both parties can see the whole board.
For the record, I see myself as a knight, able to move two spaces in any direction, other than diagonal, then one more to either side.
