Sprin also addressed the roles children play in messy divorce negotiations, saying she always hopes that although her legal obligation is to her client, the child’s best interests will be served as well.

The article covers a number of topics surrounding divorce law, and features the opinions and advice of seven legal professionals.

“This is not only helping those who need assistance addressing these topics in their lives, but it also shows the expertise that Michelle has to offer,” said Growe Eisen Karlen Managing Partner Gary Growe.

Sprin, who is also an adjunct professor at Washington University School of Law, practices primarily in family law litigation. This includes marriage dissolution, legal separation, child custody and support, and pre- and post-nuptial agreements. She was also recently appointed to serve on the Region X Disciplinary Committee of the Chief Disciplinary Counsel by the Supreme Court of Missouri, which investigates public complaints against attorneys and recommends action.

“I think it’s important for people to choose a specialist, someone who practices only family law,” Sprin responded when asked in the roundtable what clients ought to look for in a divorce or family lawyer.

The roundtable featured discussion on social media and electronic privacy’s role in divorce proceedings, as well as the growing impact of changing gender roles on maintenance (better known by laypeople as “alimony”).

Sprin also addressed the roles children play in messy divorce negotiations, saying she always hopes that although her legal obligation is to her client, the child’s best interests will be served as well. “I think the best that we can do is to hope that our clients have their children’s best interest at heart and help guide them to behave in ways that will be least detrimental to their children during the litigation,” she said.

When asked about child custody arrangements, she said she encourages her clients to look beyond the monetary settlements. “We tell clients to try to keep in mind what custody plan is actually best for their child or their family rather than the consequences regarding child support,” she responded.

Growe said he's pleased Sprin was able to participate and share her perspective.
“Regardless of subject matter, we always want to provide a solution that’s tailored to a client’s individual needs,” concluded Growe.
