A Divorce Lawyers Guide to Staying Together

A new author, but not new to relationships, James Sexton has popped into stores across America and online with his new book “If You’re In My Office It’s Already Too Late: A Divorce Lawyers Guide to Staying Together”. James Sexton has spent over 20 years as a divorce lawyer in the New York Area.  Throughout his time as a lawyer, he has amassed a lot of experience dealing with couples. This book is and is explicitly stated as, a book of what not to do. He begins you with insight into his point of view and explains why this book came into existence. Littered with snark and tangent stories of relationships gone astray, he paints a picture from his eyes of why they did. The book never feels preachy or makes either party in his stories seem to be the “bad guy”, although some are heavily hinted at, and even then, he tries to be devil’s advocate. The reader is left giggling as much as they are made to feel they have been told something meaningful. His words don’t just pertain to romantic relationships, although as a divorce lawyers that is what he works with daily, but can be repackaged to fit family or friends as well. He drives home points such as, communication and respect being huge parts of what makes or breaks a relationship. Overall, a must-read for anyone planning to settle down with a significant other.
