Celebrity Separations and Divorces: Evander and Candi Holyfield

Did you hear the news?  According to various news reports, the divorce of former boxing heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield from his (ex-)spouse, Candi, became final recently here in Georgia.

I have always been a big fan of Holyfield, both inside and outside the ring. Once, while standing in line for a sporting event at the civic center, here in Augusta, Georgia, I unintentionally bumped a man in front of me. As I turned around to apologize, I immediately recognized that it was Mr. Holyfield who I had jostled! Thankfully, he was very gracious and even gave one of my sons his autograph!

Here's hoping that Mr. Holyfield and his ex will soon get beyond any problems and find happiness.

Divorce Lawyer Advertising, Or How To Find A Good Divorce Lawyer

As you may know from earlier posts, we are father and son divorce lawyers who practice law together in Augusta, Georgia.  In this divorce blog, among other  things, we offer practical tips and information about Georgia divorce law for you to discuss with your own divorce attorneys.  We also sometimes talk about issues presented by celebrity separations and divorces.

As an Augusta, GA divorce attorney, I never cease to be amazed at how our clients find us.  Sometimes, we receive referrals from previous divorce clients, or other people we know.  Other times, folks find us in the telephone book, or through the internet, or even through this divorce blog.

As divorce attorneys, we must frequently re-evaluate how we choose to advertise, or get the word out, about our Augusta law firm.  It appears that things are in transition from the old "let your fingers do the walking through the yellow pages," to a new approach of finding a divorce lawyer through the internet.

Which method of advertising, i.e. telephone book yellow pages, or the internet, would be the best way to provide information about our divorce/family law firm to potential divorce clients "out there?" What do you think is the best way to find a good, inexpensive divorce lawyer in Augusta, Georgia!?
