re: Is $20K retainer typical for divorce attorney in Houston? - ProudLSUMom
[quote]Is she demanding too much in settlement?[/quote] I really don't know. She is clueless in the game of life. If she is demanding too much it would only be because her attorney suggested she do so. I was told she is on disability. I know she hasn't worked in at least 3 years, maybe more. ...

re: What's the best "bang for your buck" SUV? - ProudLSUMom
I have a 2014 Acura MDX that I love.
