Season Finale Theme: Family Law
As you’ve likely noticed over the past several months, the ADLG team launched a new blog series to take a deep dive and analyze the numerous family themes addressed in the first season of the dramatic hit TV series “Big Little Lies” in preparation for the amazing second season, which was released this June. Below is a condensed recap of our blog entry that addresses the season ending and cliff-hanger episode, “You Get What You Need.”
The title of this series is “Big Little Lies,” and, as the first season unfolds, the audience learns that each of the characters is holding onto their own lies — all for different reasons. Madeline is dealing with issues of custody and infidelity. Celeste is seeking counseling for her abusive husband and is considering separation. Jane is dealing with the trauma of rape, all while raising her son — who was fathered by her attacker. Characters Bonnie and Renata are also trying to handle life as stepmothers, breadwinners, and members of the Monterey, California, community. But it seems that the more these ladies try to hide their lies, the worse their situations become.
At ADLG, we believe family law is about helping individuals and families manage the emotional struggles of facing an uncertain future. Our legal team is sensitive and empathetic to the big changes occurring in our clients’ lives. For many couples, their “happily ever after” may not have been meant to be — at least not together — but divorce does not have to mean the end of your story.
When a family unit is threatened by a legal issue, our team has the expertise to step in and help minimize the blow to the family’s well-being. We take a holistic approach in how we help a family get through this transition and are involved with all aspects of the family members’ lives as they deal with this challenging time. By protecting and securing a better future for our clients, we believe we can help our clients deal with their own big little lies and turn their personal challenges into positive changes.
No matter how complex your struggle may seem, our team is here to listen. Give us a call, tell us your story, and we will do all we can to help you through it. In the meantime, be sure to check season two of “Big Little Lies.” We promise you won’t be disappointed.
