Helfand has spent 11 years referring clients for specific legal needs. He says March is easily the busiest month for divorce lawyer requests.

“There really isn’t any legal issue more predictable than this,” Helfand wrote. “Around the holidays many people decide that they are going to make this change in their life, and around this time of year the filings go crazy.”
