Attorneys are Guilty in Family Court. Amanda Mason was sworn in as a witness in her own divorce, around the same time she was sworn in as an attorney for the state of Minnesota. This remarkable young woman became Michelle MacDonald’s client after representing herself in obtaining an order for protection for herself and her daughter. As a law student, Amanda was shocked at the family court’s lack of due process, and the cavalier attitude that protection orders are irrelevant in divorce proceedings. Amanda plead “not guilty” to countless frivolous issues raised by her husband’s attorney, who was guilty of micro-managing the divorce process, and increasing Amanda’s legal fees.
