Essential Questions to Ask a Family Law Attorney in the Initial Interview

Consulting with an attorney about a divorce case may seem overwhelming. If you have never been through the process, you may not know what questions to ask or what information may or may not be relevant. In addition, emotions are often high since it may feel like so much is at stake.  For these reasons, it can be helpful to be prepared with specific questions during your first meeting with a divorce lawyer. Ferro & Battey LLC shares some great questions to ask….

Meet Lisa

Local mom of two, and a highly respected pediatric speech-pathologist, Lisa Cloherty has ALWAYS loved reading and writing, and dreamed of being an author one day! She is launching her debut children’s book, Katie Spector the Art Collector, this month and will be hosting a reading an live event with art, music and reading on 9/25 at 1pm at Wakeman Town Farm! Lisa credits her daughter – and her experience with art in Kindergarten – for the idea behind her book! Lisa loves any book by Adam Rex, is ironically not artistic at all despite her first book being about art, and in a next life would love to own an independent book store. Huge congrats to Lisa for following her lifelong dream; we can’t wait to get our hands on this book!

Roast Chicken Recipe for The Holidays (or any night!!)

Happy Holidays to anyone celebrating! This Roast Chicken with Thyme and Honey, from Leah Koenig’s The Jewish Cookbook, is one of those go-to meals that works as well for holiday dinners as it does for family meals all Fall long. Says Leah: “Flavored with sweet honey and an herbaceous hit of thyme, this roast chicken dish is simple enough to make for a weeknight, and special enough to sit center stage on your holiday table. Don’t sleep on all the veggies underneath – they get coated with savory chicken juices during cooking, and are truly delicious!”

5 Reasons why Moms Should Play Sports!

As we head into Fall, many of us are signing our kids up for Fall sports—and reminiscing about our own childhood sports careers. What we should be doing? Signing ourselves up, too.

For whatever reason, dads are more likely to keep up with their favorite form of competitive exercise, from tennis to golf—so let’s try to join them if we can. Here are 5 reasons why we should all be staying in the game.

Meet Louisa

Mom of three, Louisa left the world of finance and hedge funds to pursue her entrepreneurial itch after having her daughter and realizing there was an opportunity to make ear piercing both a safe and celebratory experience. She shares how studying malls and recognizing the meaningful role Claire’s played in so many of them helped trigger her own idea to do something innovative and fresh! Rowan recently launched in Westport as the 2nd stand-alone studio in addition to Rowan’s presence in over 250 Targets nationwide! They offer piercings done by nurses, and sell only hypoallergenic earrings! In her spare time, Louisa loves yoga, all things French (including – and especially – French Fries!), and has a passion for helping others in the community who need It. Rowan is a special place that helps safely celebrate a special milestone for so many kids (young and old); we are proud to have you in Westport!
