Eric Broder and Carole Orland featured in Westport Lifestyle Magazine

Eric J. Broder and Carole Topol Orland were featured in Westport Lifestyle Magazine (Jan. ’21) in an article entitled Healthy Divorce in Unhealthy Times. Their expert advice and insight included the following:

  • “Try really hard to come to a solution sooner than later without unnecessarily expending emotional and financial resources…Start with kids, kids, kids. Address their issues first…Most parents want to do right by their kids and it’s often a good jumping off point for the rest of negotiations.” Carole Orland
  • “Many couples thrive as individuals after the case is over. I get a lot of calls out of the blue form former clients just to tell me how well things are going. In particular between their now ex-spouse. Often these relationships get better without the tension of divorce.” Eric Broder
