Keeping It Civil

The Case of the Pre-nup and the Porsche & Other True Accounts from the Files of a Family Lawyer

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Provocative true cases that explore the intersection of our most intimate relationships and the law—and offer a window into how we define a family today.

A woman seeking a divorce has no idea of the family finances—her husband doled out money only after she gave him requisition slips for her intended purchases. A lesbian couple wants to include their sperm donor in their child’s life—the sperm donor is the brother of one partner, so he will be the biological father as well as the child’s uncle. These are the clients who come knocking on family lawyer Margaret Klaw’s door, hoping for resolution. 

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 08, 2013 – A prominent family lawyer with the Philadelphia firm Berner Klaw & Watson shines a light on the tumultuous and complex world of domestic relations law in this optimistic yet cautionary expos . Klaw addresses the old and the new, covering everything from divorce cases to the evolving legislation on same-sex marriages. Illuminating chapters on these legal conundrums alternate with a detailed narrative of a particular divorce case as it wends its way through the Pennsylvania court system. This Anatomy of a Trial serves as an excellent, non-technical crash course on how and why lawyers do what they do from planning a witness examination to devising strategies to appeal to a judge, navigating conflicts with the opposing counsel, and managing the relationship with their own client. Klaw s candid and pragmatic commentary provides additional insight into how lawyers balance personal convictions and professional considerations, a feat made all the more complicated by the nature of Klaw s particular kind of practice. Substantive yet accessible enough to appeal to both law students and clients alike, this book accomplishes an admirable goal: to foreground the humanity in the halls of justice.
