Highly Emotionally Driven Dispute

It is not uncommon for disputes to have an emotional component. However, some disputes can be driven by highly intense emotion, which, if not appropriately addressed, can lead to impasse. Other conflicts involve high conflict personality parties and their attorneys. These difficult personality types (histrionic, narcissistic, borderline and antisocial) drive disputes more than the perceived “facts” and “the law” do and can be managed.

A few examples of highly emotionally driven disputes: death in the family and conflicts involving family assets; ie. probate, trust, estate, conservatorship and financial elder abuse. Family owned business, individual’s claims against insurance carriers, loss of significant assets or net worth (loss of home, assets in securities disputes, a business), by and against churches, fraud, unfair competition, emotional distress, malicious prosecution.
