Should You Litigate or Mediate?

When it comes to divorce, most people imagine the absolute worst to happen legally and emotionally. We hear about terrible divorces from our friends and the news, and we see stories in movies about heartbreak that typically involve a couple’s legal combat in the courtroom.

“Marriage Story” starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver has been praised by divorce lawyers for its realistic portrayal of real dynamics of litigation. In the movie, we learn that the legal system of divorce makes it difficult to reach a true win-win. It illustrates how divorce litigation is anything but just paperwork and facts. It shows why people who used to love each other eventually pursue the course of damaging one another’s reputation and credibility as much as possible in order to attain the settlement they are seeking.

As such, audiences come away from the movie with being unable to pinpoint either person as the real villain or hero. Rather, the characters are recognized as being complicated and messy people who love each other but do not belong together. Despite the couple reaching many points of anger and exhaustion, it is evident that at no point does the couple ever truly hate one other. Rather, they are forced to their breaking point because of how challenging it is to navigate the difficult and convoluted process of divorce litigation. Moreover, we see how the combative nature of the litigation prompts lawyers to act overtly mean and invasive in order to win.

As you know, we write for the conspiracists and skeptics. We like to consider new and better alternatives to the norm. So this article is to question the narrative of divorce being the awful bureaucratic experience that it is commonly portrayed as. What if there was another way? A more friendly, fair, and communicative way?

Consider mediation. When it comes to choosing between a mediator or a family law attorney, most people prefer mediation because it is less antagonistic. Many people suffer physical health consequences because of the stress that arises through litigation in public court. In mediation, a neutral third party facilitates a resolution communicated by and agreed upon by both parties privately. Unlike a lawyer whose objective is to win a case, a mediator’s goal is to bring both parties to an agreement to what really matters: the division of assets, liabilities, and custody schedules.

McNamee Mediations is a divorce and family mediator who has been recognized as an expert Newport Beach, California. Colleen McNamee is unlike any divorce mediator we’ve reviewed. When it comes to divorce, most people don’t expect to fall in love again right before it becomes final. But some of Colleen’s clients have even reconciled during mediation instead of finalizing their divorce! She has over forty 5-star reviews on Yelp, which is astounding!

Mediation might be the right fit for you if you are looking for an alternative to litigation. If you are considering a divorce, you can give McNamee Mediations to inquire about their services.

Hiring A Contractor? Have Some Healthy Skepticism

How should you proceed once you have decided to remodel your home? Most people decide to hire a professional, rather than doing the renovations themselves. If you are one thinking about hiring a contractor, this article is for you. We wanted to discuss a couple of important considerations.

Finding the right contractor can be the trickiest part of any project. For any homeowner, it can be extremely nerve-wracking to give someone the responsibility of transforming your home. Whether it is a demolition or installation, homeowners want their homes to be renovated in good hands.

As most readers of this website already know, we are written by skeptics, for skeptics. We’ve all heard about home renovation disasters and contractors from hell. This is why we are fans of skepticism: a healthy dose can save you a lot of trouble! The right contractor can make your dream home come true, and the wrong one can leave your home as an unfinished construction site.

You should always start with a vision and specific plan. Do not rely on your contractor as a design consultant, as this can lead to several problems. Even if your contractor has experience and knows exactly what they are doing, you should clearly communicate the ideas you have in mind.

If you are renovating your house as a couple or with other people living in the same house, be sure to discuss everything beforehand. Your contractor certainly won’t have the qualifications to act as a marriage counsellor, should any disagreements arise.

Neighbours, coworkers, and your local home improvement store may be the best place to ask for referrals. It is best to collect several referrals and interview each one. This is your opportunity to interview them thoroughly, which will help you understand the requirements of your project. Be sure to ask for a quote at the end, so that you can compare the costs of time, deliverables, and materials.

You should also never rely on benefit of the doubt, whether it is before or during the renovation. If something does not look or sound right, be sure to ask your contractor to stop and provide you with the information you need in order to feel good about proceeding. If you still do not feel like you are ready to make an informed decision, you can call a friend or do some online research about the topic in question.

For most homeowners, the first remodel is the kitchen. If you are planning a kitchen remodel and are looking to hire a contractor based in Orange County, we highly recommend Inspired Remodels. They are Yelp verified and have received stellar ratings and reviews, including this one: “So, what everyone else is saying here on Yelp is certainly true – Inspired Remodels is the real deal, and if you’re looking to hire a trustworthy contractor to make your vision a reality, there’s no need to look any further.” If you have planned out your next renovation and are ready to start speaking to potential contractors for hire, give Inspired Remodels a call to inquire about their team and services.

The Root Of The Mystery

On bright spring morning, Detective Holmes stepped out of his home office for a breather outside. He couldn’t help but notice that his lawn looked terrible. The grass was patchy and a dull shade of green. Then, he looked up across the street, and noticed that every lawn in his neighbourhood looked the same. What a sore sight! He sighed. He had spent quite a fortune on maintaining his lawn, and wondered what it had all been for. In fact, what what was the point of anything? He took a deep breath. He had tendency to question every thought with an existential philosophy. He was a deep thinker who had experienced and witnessed much, perhaps too much, in life, and wanted to understanding the meaning of it all.

Holmes went back inside. As he sat down and began to ponder the great existential question of human existence, he paused. He glanced at his book shelf, his cat, and his tea pot. It was beautiful, and he came to the realization that perhaps the meaning of life was to simply enjoy all of the beauty of it. He sighed a long and deep sigh, coming to terms with a long-forgotten sense of inner peace.

But then he remembered what he saw that morning. “Grrr!” he exasperated. “What is the matter?” Holmes was determined to get to the bottom of the mystery of the sad grass. He sat back in his chair. He was a smart man who knew better than to look at situations from their mere surface. He leapt out of his chair, ran to his shed, and grabbed this shovel. Holmes found himself digging for answers as he shovelled through the soil of his front lawn.

Stack of Gray Stones

“Aha!!” he exclaimed. He was glad he found the answer, but frustrated that this meant that he had been spending a fortune on grass that was in no healthy condition to grow. What he found from his digging was that the soil and clay composition of the ground simply wasn’t the best for growing lush green grass. Holmes ran back to his shed, threw his shovel inside, and raced back into his office. “I will find an alternative!” he shouted to himself. He was the type of man who was relentless and always focused on finding a solution.

He figured real grass was no longer physically viable, nor was it a cost-friendly option. Holmes conducted some further investigation and discovered that artificial grass had become increasingly popular over the years in Orange County. However, the man was a skeptic and did not trust popular opinion. He had to discover the truth on his own and see it with his own eyes.

With some more research and reading online reviews, he stumbled across NoMow Turf, an artificial turf installation company that happened to be based in Orange County. He looked carefully at each photo on the site, and while he was normally a hard man to impress, Holmes was dazzled. He gave them a call and had his new lawn installed the very next day.

If you are finding it difficult or costly to grow and maintain your lawn, check out NoMow Turf and give them a call.

A Globetrotter Returns Home

Olivia Turner is a globetrotting journalist who has spent the last few months residing in her elegant Tuscan style home in the residential community of Los Angeles. Three months ago, she returned home after having spent six months in Northern Thailand, visiting temples and schools, reporting on culture and philosophy. She came back from her trip with an appreciation and desire for a quieter and more peaceful life. Inspired by the aesthetics of Asian prayer gardens, Olivia decided to revamp her backyard.

Rancho Santa Fe Mediterranean Gardens

“I love my job as a traveling reporter, but it is very physically exhausting. That said, I learn so much from seeing the world. I leave every city as a brand new person. And I’ve returned home to Los Angeles wanting to create a space in my own home that allows me to recall and remember what I learned from my experience in Thailand.”

The typical stages of revamping a backyard involve design, measurement, build, and installation. Olivia enlisted the services of a landscape design firm based in Point Loma to bring her dream into reality. “I wanted to elevate my garden to give it an energy that is both invigorating and soothing. I wanted zen but I also wanted California cool.” To achieve her desired result, the designers recommended three key elements: greenery, symmetry, and simplicity.

Torrey Pines Landscape company is a landscape design-build company based in Mission Hills, founded by award-winning landscape contractor Harry Thompson. “I don’t expect my globetrotting days to come to an end anytime soon, but I do plan on spending much more of the year at home with my children. They are only young for so long, and I want to be here to watch them grow up. In addition to dinner parties and group meditations, I wanted this backyard to be a play space for my little ones. I wanted this to be a lifelong garden, and so I knew that I had to hire an expert to get it right.”

Knowing what she wanted and seeing that the designers had captured her vision in their detailed plans, it wasn’t hard for Olivia to agree to move onto the next stage. For over thirty-five years, Torrey Pines Landscaping Company has been custom designing and transforming gardens in San Diego. They have an impressive portfolio of projects, with features such as fire pits, kitchens, patio covers, planters, fountains, and more. The company also offers landscape maintenance, which includes garden pest control, water audits and management, lighting upkeep and improvement, plant care, weed abatement, soil testing, seasoning flower planting, and more.

“I wanted there to be structure with the arrangement of the greenery. And I wanted to showcase a foundation. Water has a lot of symbolism in Eastern culture and religion. Nature and water are believed to provide calm energy. Once they sketched up the plan and showed it to me, I knew that it was going to be perfect. I loved that they captured my preference for a minimalist style of elegance. “

If you are looking to transform your garden into an oasis, you can give them a call.

The Road To Freedom

Alana Sadowski, now thirty-three, once lived in Poland before immigrating to the United States five years ago. “I had a dream of making it as a model in the fashion industry. My boyfriend at the time had taken me on a trip to New York City, and as soon as I got into the city, I knew I had to be here in order for my career to blossom.”

Sadowski says that soon afterward, she and her boyfriend had returned to Poland and she decided to end the relationship in order to pursue a new life in the U.S. “It was very difficult to leave him, but it was not a choice I ever came to regret. I am certain that I would have eventually made the decision either way, because I knew that I was destined for a life outside of my hometown in Poland.” This prompted Alana to look into her options as to obtaining legal status to live and work in the U.S.

Flowers Near Woman's Face

“I wanted to do everything the right way. I kept hearing about illegal and undocumented immigrants having to face many hardships and struggles, and worrying that they would one day be discovered and deported. I just wanted to do things right the first time around.” Today, Alana has a flourishing modelling career and resides in the Soho district of New York City.

As stated on usa.gov, a green card gives you official immigration status in the United States, entitles you to certain rights and responsibilities, and is required if you wish to naturalize as a U.S. Citizen. One must be eligible in order to apply.

In 2018, a news story broke about a woman who had paid thousands of dollars in legal fees to a lawyer to help her obtain a green card, only to be given an order of deportation. Unfortunately, her lawyer intentionally misled her by the semantics of the law, preying on her hopes and dreams, using a tactic that resulted in her being lured into testifying in court. The hearing was not to decide on granting her green card status, but to decide on whether or not she should be deported. This lawyer had convinced her that under the “ten year law” of undocumented immigrants, she could be granted legal status.

Entering into the U.S. without lawful status will always put you at risk. However, if you have been a victim of a crime, or if your spouse, parent, or child has immigration status, you may be eligible for a green card. K Nair Law is a green card attorney in Orange County. With a background in criminal law, Kiran Nair has effectively represented hundreds of clients and practiced for over twelve years. She understands the hurdles and challenges faced by many immigrants, having arrived to the U.S. as a young child in 1980. Most importantly, Kiran Nair is a reputable ethical lawyer who advises and represents her clients with integrity.

If you are looking to attain legal status in the U.S., we highly recommend contacting K Nair Law firm for a consultation.

Protection in the Burning Times

Well folks, it’s that time of the year again. No, not the holiday season, not Halloween, nor any of your weirdo pagan holidays pushed on us to sell candy and poorly made horror films.

It’s the time of year where our great and beautiful state goes up in flames, choking our already smog-ridden cities in a thick blanket of ash as we helplessly watch the pillars of smoke creep menacingly towards our neighborhoods. The neighborhoods of the common man, anyway; the rich and powerful never seem to be in the way of the flames.

It’s enough to make you wonder, what are our elected officials doing about the problem? Are they using our tax dollars to control the dry brush and fund the firehouses? Not quite. 

The powers that be, in their infinite wisdom, have decided the best way to combat this ‘natural’ disaster is to…shut off our power.

Now, you all know me. I’m no conspiracy theorist. I don’t walk around mumbling about aliens and Nessie all day. 

What I do walk around thinking is, “Hey, wouldn’t it be nice if we had power right now so cell phone towers worked and we could tell where the best evacuation routes were?” If I were a state government looking at an ever-worsening population problem, what would be the best way to snuff out some of those pesky moaning peasants that demand I do my ‘job’ all day?

While I’m at it, why have those fire-starting winds seem to have gotten worse since they installed all those “wind power” generators in the desert?! Sure seems convenient they’re all pointed west towards civilization.

Just sayin’!

Anyway, we can speculate on who started the fires and why it was clearly the government all we want, it’s not going to make us and our homes any safer. We need concrete, actionable steps that will allow us to both physically and financially protect ourselves from disasters, whether they’re man made or natural.

When it comes to financially protecting ourselves, there’s nothing quite like insurance, especially in a state as disaster prone as California. If you’re in Southern California (land of giant earthquakes, fires, and dumb, aggressive drivers), insurance can be the deciding factor in whether you’re able to pick yourself up and dust yourself off once the Big One comes and goes.

That’s why I’m spotlighting Galindo Insurance today, a local agent with some serious chops and none of the usual hocus pocus jibber jabber that you get with the typical broker. He can help set you up with auto, home, business, property, life, and health insurance, and if your needs aren’t covered under those, his network of contacts from working under Statefarm will get you to the right person.

We live in some strange times, folks. You can feel the shifts in the winds of the world as it changes around us. They howl now, dry leaves skittering across the pavement sounding like bones being scraped of meat. The normal greyish brown L.A. haze has turned into a sickly orange as the flames engulf the hills. The licking flames seem to reach farther towards the city every year.

There’s only one thing you can count on as stable and unchanging: the Dover Street Examiner’s coverage of the failings of our so-called “leaders” and local businesses that can actually make a difference. 

For everything else, there’s Galindo Insurance. Give them a call:

Killing Termites With Integrity

Termites are wood-eating insects. These critters have the ability to turn your house into their own grand banquet feast. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) reports that every year, termites cause over $5 billion in property damage. Who should you turn to if you think you think your house may be infested?

In 2014, Specialty Products Consultants, LLC reported that there were over 19,000 companies in the industry (A Strategic Analysis of the U.S. Structural Pest Control Industry – 2014). We reviewed Grand Oaks Termite Control, a business that offers inspection and treatments. They were established in 2013 and service the Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, and Pasadena region.

Grand Oaks Termite Control conducts thorough and detailed termite inspection in San Dimas. NPMA reports that pests “contaminate food, as well as kitchen equipment and other surfaces. Pests also infest food items and stored products including grains and dry goods.”

Grand Oaks promises competitive termite inspection and treatment costs. They also offer excellent customer service, as demonstrated by their stellar ratings and reviews on Yelp. One reviewer mentioned that Grand Oaks beat out other providers on price. In addition, she states that the company was an excellent communicator throughout the entire process.

The company offers different types of treatments depending on the severity of the infestation. They offer localize and full perimeter treatments for subterranean infestations. According to NPMA, subterranean termites eat non-stop, and are therefore the most destructive species of termite in the country.

Grand Oaks offers a regular inspection program, which allows home owners to proactively take preventative measures against possible termite infestation and subsequent damage.

We always look to review companies who are known to provide accurate information and full transparency in order to act in best interest of their customers. We believe that professional integrity includes not taking advantage of worrisome situations just for the sake of profit. In the case of exterminator services, it is very difficult for the average home owner to understand the extent of the problem. Therefore, they are completely reliant on the information provided to them by the inspector. In these situations, there is no way to know if the company is giving a home owner exaggerated claims about the inspection in order to take advantage of their concern and willingness to save their house.

However, Grand Oaks boasts a strong reputation of honesty and track record of service. The owner started the company after seeing too many instances of poor industry practices. One reviewer mentions how worried she was about her entire home being infested. Luckily, Grand Oaks determined that to not be the case and was able provided a fair quote. Moreover, they were able to treat the affected area in an hour.

We highly recommended that you give Grand Oaks Termite Control a call if you believe that your home has a termite infestation.

The Attorney You Can Trust

On our never-ending mission to find only the truth, Dover Street delves into the world of personal injury attorneys. This industry is full of firms that promise the world but can’t deliver on it. However, it seems we’ve found one that will in sunny San Diego. 

Since it is impossible (or at least probably immoral) to go undercover and become accidentally injured, hire a lawyer, and fight for our rights, we went the next best route. We interviewed someone who was forced to go down that path. Spoiler alert: they’re doing great. This is how it went.

Susan sat in front of me, nursing a muffin she bought from the coffee shop. People buzzed around us. Speaking about these things in public places always offered a distraction when needed, and allowed them to open up.

“Are you okay to talk about it?” I asked.

“It’s strange how easy it is to talk about it,” Susan said. “After it happened, the thought of it would make me shudder.”

I nodded. 

“Part of that is because of Villasenor, you know,” she added. “They made everything easier.”

Susan was in a horrific car accident. On the way home from a trip to the salon, Susan was minding her own business when someone ran a red light, crashing into her car. Her car was totaled, and she was still going to doctor’s appointments to make things right. This wasn’t something she could have planned for, and certainly not something she could afford.

Susan absentmindedly traced the silvery pink scar on the back of her arm. I took note that it was healing well.

“So, how did you choose a personal injury attorney in San Diego?” I asked, “It’s not exactly a small city.”

“I just went to Google and started searching. When I found their website,” she said, “It looked official, and they said they had over 25 years of experience. After their free consultation, I knew that was the route I wanted to go.”

“That’s great,” I said. “It sounds like you’re glad you made that choice.”

“I am,” she said. “During the consultation, he was very honest and sympathetic toward my situation. And then, he was always ready to communicate and made sure everything was complete. He even worked during the weekend at one point, to meet a last-minute deadline.”

The interview continued to go as expected: Villasenor was there for her at every turn. They knew what to expect, and managed to procure a maximum recovery on her behalf. Now, all she needs to worry about is getting better. 

Digging a little deeper through the internet, we see that this same story is repeated on various review websites. People speak highly of Villasenor and their ability to offer the best services. The one time they received a negative review, a one-star on Yelp, they responded with an impressive amount of class, disagreeing and disproving why that person was upset with them. Seeing this response makes you want them on your side even more.

Villasenor can fulfill their promises and if you need a personal injury attorney, you can contact them here:

Building a New Home and a New Trust

This week, we’re going to give you a behind the scenes look at how we do our investigative reporting. We recently profiled a great landscaper, but we figured, what good what a landscaper be if you didn’t have a home and yard to landscape. We are going undercover to look at one of the top-ranked home builders in the area. Here is how it went down:

“I’m nervous,” Kelly said. She took a sip of her frozen strawberry lemonade. “It’s a huge, commitment, you know?”

“It’ll be fine, honey,” her husband, Jonathon replied. 

The spread of papers printed from various websites on their kitchen table looked daunting indeed. Home builder after home builder, each with a seemingly impressive portfolio was intimidating. How could they know which one was the best for them?

The corner of one caught Kelly’s eye. With an impressively clean layout, the home builder Sailhouse had an incredible portfolio of modern-looking homes. A quote on the front page caught her attention. 

She read aloud, “‘Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness,’ by Frank Gehry.”

“Sounds like the kind of people we’re looking for, huh?” Jonathon said. He took a sip of his own lemonade.

“It does,” Kelly said. “I think I’m going to give them a call.”

Continuing to do research on Sailhouse, Kelly found that they maintained a proud 5-star rating online with glowing reviews. Their portfolio with over a dozen projects was impressive. You could tell they had an eye for excellence. She knew this was going to be a good one.

Jonathon left the details up to his wife, but they were both excited to consult with these top-notch custom home builders in Newport Beach. Kelly, a manager for her husband, had a sharp eye for detail. She knew exactly what she wanted. Jonathon was much simpler and had only a few requirements for their dream home. Many years ago, they would sit beneath the stars and dream of designing and building their own home complete with an in-house theater and outdoor grill. At the time, it all seemed impossible. But, fortune and hard work shined on them. Now, it was finally a possibility.

Kelly smoothed out her dress one last time and stepped into the office.

Beautiful, the office spoke of modern design and an eye for practical comfort. She sank into the chair at the front of the desk. The man behind the desk seemed kindly with a welcoming smile. He reached to shake her hand.

“So, what can I do for you?” he asked.

“My husband and I saw the custom home option on your website,” she said. “We were thinking of going that route with you.”

“Of course!” he said. “That wouldn’t be a problem, what are you looking for?”

Kelly quickly described to him the general idea for their dream home, leaving spaces for him to nod and ask questions. He was incredibly understanding of her desires and ideas and even offered a few suggestions himself. 

“I just have a few more questions,” Kelly said.

“Of course,” he said.

“Do you have any examples of something similar to what we’ve discussed?” she asked.

“We do, actually,” he said. With a few clicks on the computer, he pulled up a gorgeous home at 33rd St., Newport Beach. The home captured beautiful modern architecture while allowing a callback to the kinds of homes that used to be popular in the area. It was very close to what Kelly was describing, actually.

“It’s gorgeous,” she said. “One other thing. What do you pride yourself most on?”

“Other than our hard work and desire to create the best home we can, we pride ourselves on our efficiency and professionalism.”

Kelly continued to nod and take notes. She knew where she was going to put her trust and money.

This Old Dog You Can’t Trick

There are times in life when the world gains a shade of red and everyone seems out to get you.  Few of those times are worse than being in the middle of a divorce.  If people would just be honest about their problems, maybe it would be bearable.  But, it’s the vicious backstabbing and fact clouding which makes your heart feel like it is perpetually smoldering.

I had the honor of hearing directly from a certain Dominic here in Santa Ana about how he eventually was able to pour healing water on the embers of his own messy divorce case.

“I never imagined it could be that bad,” said Dominic over a cup of coffee.  “You know, when you get married, divorce is the furthest thing from your mind.  I never thought that my wife could go as low as she did.  If it weren’t for Shuff Law, I would be curled up in a hole somewhere right now in despair.”

When I asked how he came by the Shuff Law Firm, he said that it was a stroke of providence.  He wasn’t aware of any divorce and family law firms in Orange County, and who would be? No one gets married with a divorce lawyer in mind.  He took a chance with Shuff and was not disappointed at all.

“My wife made it hard from the start,” he said.  “She was in the house while I had to find a cheap apartment to live in while the case worked itself out.  A mutual friend of ours actually suggested a couple of lawyers to me.  It turns out, my wife had already been to see them both.  She had told them just enough of her side of the story without hiring them that they weren’t open to helping me.  Since that freed me to go with Shuff Law, she actually did me a favor.”

Dominic had two young kids who he was fighting for custody as part of the divorce.  Numerous times in our conversation, he mentioned how afraid he had been that his kids would be taken away.  He knew that his wife was manipulative and emotionally abusive, but he had no idea how to prove that in court.  Besides, the woman almost always wins custody.

Continuing to relate his story, Dominic said, “Joe saved my sanity.  Even from the start, he assured me that the truth would prevail.  My wife may have manipulated me in the past, getting me into debt that I never wanted, and… well, I won’t dwell on all that.  Joe assured me that with him on my team, she would not be able to manipulate the court.”

“How were the meetings with Shuff Law?” I asked.

Dominic actually laughed.  It was the sort of laugh of someone who is amazed that they are still amazed by something weeks or months after the fact.  “Joe’s brilliant!  He helped me dig up emails, texts, and all sorts of other evidence that I had forgotten ever existed.  It’s as if he knew my life better than I did.  He had this uncanny intuition of where I should look for things.  I guess he’s been doing this a long time.”

“How’d things turn out?” I asked.

“I was crying for weeks,” he replied.  I must have looked concerned, because he quickly added, “Tears of joy.  They were tears of joy.  I got custody of the kids.  I thought I’d never be a happy man again.  I’m so glad that I was wrong and Joe was right.”

Dominic encouraged me to recommend the Shuff law firm to everyone I know.  He said that Joe was the best divorce attorney Santa Ana had to offer.  

Having heard Joe’s story, I’m inclined to agree.  A man who can triumph over deception and defend truth and innocence is a hero in my book.
