Podcast #3: Judge Bill Swann Reflects on Changes in the Practice of Law

I recently sat down with Judge Bill Swann to discuss the changes he observed in the practice of family law during his 32 years presiding over the dedicated family-law court in Knoxville.

Among other things, we discuss:

  • Has the way lawyers treat each other gotten better or worse?
  • How has the presence of more women attorneys changed the practice of law?
  • What’s behind the increase in pro se litigants in family-law cases, and what can be done to help them?
  • Should nonlawyer mediators be used in family-law disputes?
  • How can family-law attorneys be more effective advocates in court?
