The Valentine's Day Effect

Like lawyers nationwide, Bertolino LLP historically experiences a sharp increase in the number of clients that contact its office inquiring about divorce proceedings around Valentine's Day. Some have gone so far as to dub the time of year 'Divorce Season'.

Could the boom possibly be related to the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other? Probably not. Some researchers attribute the significant increase to an overall disinterest in filing for divorce during the preceding holiday season.


Our advice to clients? Avoid becoming a Valentine's Day statistic and stock up on flowers, candy, and gifts!
