Day 485 { 1 Lawyer, 8500 Divorce Cases } Friday, July 17, 2009


Day 485 { 1 Lawyer, 8500 Divorce Cases }


Today is the last day before summer holidays... This is what all ALTs wait for from like January... No well more like since March. Took some pictures with the kids, then after work, I went to the barber, then bought bus ticket to go to Osaka on Tuesday, then withdrew some money from my Post Office Account.


Attorney Hisako Yukawa asked the prospective client, who was throwing a tantrum about her husband: "What does it mean for you to win a divorce case? I am ready to help make you happy."

The woman had opened the door to Yukawa's office in Fukuoka wearing a somber expression. But while the 81-year-old attorney was talking, her expression changed. Yukawa, originally from the city of Kumamoto and the first female lawyer in Kyushu, has handled at least 8,500 divorce cases in the last 52 years. http://search.japantimes.co.jp/mail/nn20090717f1.html
