Having been a practicing attorney (and also a trained mediator) I encourage people to resolve their differences and disputes — peacefully and civilly. Listening to Small Claims cases for over 12 years now, has also taught me to realize the intensity and necessity of dispute resolution, especially before it turns to violence.
October is also D.V. Awareness month. See my previous post: http://blogforarizona.net/domestic-violence-awareness-month-paint-pima-purple/
