So a post divorce hearing press conference called by the lawyer for Hulk Hogan’s wife turns into a verbal cage match when Hulk crashes it. TMZ (natch) has the video. My question: who comes off better, Hulk or the yipping, yapping lawyer? Surely someone did not expect the media-loving Mr....
I have been amazed by the increasing numbers of readers of this site. We now get about 30,000 hits per month. Wow! But due to a significant change in my career path, this blog and its connected website are for sale. If you would like to take over either or both, contact me via...

I have recently had an influx of clients seeking wills and trusts. As I work with folks on these important documents, I find that education is an important part of the process. Wills and inheritances have been the subject of many made-for-tv movies so there are lots of questions and...
Domestic violence continues to be in the news, mostly due to talk about Tappahannock’s own Chris Brown and his girlfriend, Rihanna. Why did he allegedly assault her? Was there another woman? Are they on or off? And so on. The big picture is that domestic violence is as common as a sad...
