Recall hearing about the marriage of a particular lawyer. First marriage in late 40s/early 50s. Lawyer who specialized in family law. Was known to be a particularly aggressive lawyer in relation to family law. Not regarded as particularly compassionate.
All these lawyers in custody fights, with no concept of marital breakdown, or of being a parent.
Seems that restricted life experiences in a domain can skew the advocacy. Conversely, focused life experiences in a domain can also skew the advocacy. Had to withdraw from further engagement on a file when appreciating that dislike for estranged spouse was based on all too negative personal experiences with people like him or her. Not able to counsel client with experience-based dispassion.
What family might be here
