April 13, 2020 Media Mentions
The Boston Globe published an article, "Will divorce rates spike after COVID-19?" explaining that during the COVID-19 pandemic, some are speculating that there will be a rise in these rates. Verrill family law attorney David Friedman, who was interviewed and quoted in the article, confirmed that his immediate focus surrounded issues of custody, family plans for social distancing, and the fact that courts are closed for cases that aren’t deemed emergencies. David added that his efforts have been directed towards trying to help couples from across state lines see their children without compromising peoples' health.
