Over the past couple years, the phrase "The Experience Age"--or, alternately, "The Age of Experience"--has become a way to explain how we relate to goods and services in our hyper-connected, always-online world. In other words, to deeply connect there needs to be something that creates a memory, a feeling, or an emotional response beyond just pressing a smartphone button.
I agree that we live in an age of experience, but, from the perspective of divorce, I look at it from a different perspective. Getting divorced is highly emotional, personal, and intense--it's the time you most need to be guided through by someone with ample experience. A lawyer with thousands and thousands of cases under their belt has vast knowledge of the law, of course, but also a deep understanding of what couples (and, in many cases, their kids) are going through. The process is inevitably less jarring with that type of guidance and help.
I'm very happy to say that I'm firmly based in what I view as The Experience Age, since it means my clients benefit from the huge understanding of the dynamics of divorce that can only come with an extensive amount of cases.
