Celebrity marriages that were shorter than your last holiday

We started writing this blog based on two factors: 1) family law is a serious issue, and 2) we are not serious lawyers. Sure, everyone on our team has law degrees from fancy schools, in total we have over 70 years of combined experience practicing law in Renton, and the Buckingham, LaGrandeur & Williams library is full of purportedly important books -- but our team is about as somber as a Vegas chapel when the clock strikes midnight.

Celebrities who have more divorces than Ross Gellar

Do you remember when all anyone could talk about was, “divorce rates skyrocketing to well over 50% of all marriages?” We still hear that statistic occasionally, but it’s just not true -- or at least it hasn’t been since the ’70s and ’80s.

You’d think the Coen Brothers and romantic comedy would go together like celebrities and the Walmart clearance rack; neither are made for each other and the combination isn’t doing anyone any favors.

Nevertheless, Intolerable Cruelty opened in 2003 to relatively positive reviews, a healthy payout for the film’s financiers, and 15 years later our clients are still referencing it.

5 workplace injuries that remind us celebrities don’t have it all

One of our favorite things to do with this blog is lampoon celebrities for their unrivaled affinity for opulence and luxury. But there’s one luxury they’ll never get, and it’s one you already have: workplace safety.

Seriously, Wikipedia has a gigantic page of on-set injuries which lists a whopping 62 incidents from 2010 to 2016. Does your office average more than 10 injuries per year? We didn’t think so.
