Beginning with the story of her own parents’ divorce, in I Never Saw My Father Again, Joryn Jenkins, a 35-year divorce attorney, illustrates with true stories how personal choices impact how people end their marriages: with dignity and self-respect, or with hatred and virtual bloodshed. Like War or Peace, Joryn’s first book about the long lasting effects of the traditional courtroom divorce, I Never Saw My Father Again is a must-read for anyone contemplating divorce. Everyone has heard the horror stories; few know how to avoid them. In both books, Joryn demonstrates how to avoid the lasting effects of the destruction caused by the divorce court process, recounting actual events as she witnessed them unfold, both the divorce wars fought in the courtroom, as well as the peaceful divorces negotiated at the conference table, and revealing the alternatives, so that the lay reader can make his own informed choices.

Joryn Jenkins is a trial attorney with 35 years of courtroom experience, now in private practice at Open Palm in Tampa, where she concentrates on the collaborative practice of family law. Ms. Jenkins received her B.A. degree from Yale University when she was nineteen years old and her J.D. from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. She is a former editor of The Family Law Commentator of The Florida Bar and the former editor-in-chief of both The Federal Lawyer and The Bencher magazines. She is the author of Florida Civil Practice Motions (Lexis Law Publishing), and, more recently, The Stepmother’s Cookbook, War or Peace (Avoid the Destruction of Divorce Court ) and I Never Saw My Father Again (The Divorce Court Effect) (all by Open Palm Press), available on Amazon.com. She is one of the few who have received an award given to only one person each year at a ceremony performed in the Supreme Court of the United States and has also been granted the President’s Award, the highest honor that the Federal Bar Association can bestow, again, to just one person annually. While Joryn’s focus during most of her 35 years in practice has centered on legal ethics, civility, and professionalism in the practice of law, her mission in recent years has morphed, to “change the way the world gets divorced,” to inform folks as to the alternatives they have when it comes to the process of divorce, and to enlighten them as to which choices will best suit their families and their finances.
