Prolific author Susan L. Pollet, former WWBA President, has published a work of fiction, available on Amazon, entitled Grey Divorce Support Group: From Pain to Peace. As noted by the editor, “Grey divorce, defined as a divorce for people over fifty years old, is a big issue right now as the rates of it are climbing. In this novel, the author reveals the main issues and causes of grey divorce through the vehicle of a fictional support group.” Best wishes to Susan for connecting with readers with this publication.

Interview of the Month

An Interview with 
Anne Aicher

Susan L. Pollet

Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee

Q: When did you become involved with WWBA and in what capacity have you served the organization?

A:  I joined the WWBA in 2019 after my managing partner, Moira Laidlaw, suggested it, and I’m so glad I did. The first year I joined as a member of the Real Property Committee, and in 2020 I became a Co-Chair of the Real Property Committee along with Allyson Lanahan and Robbin Sweeney. We decided early on that we wanted to work together to educate ourselves and each other, so we have held several lunch-and-learn sessions for WWBA members to learn some of the intricacies of real property law.

Q: Why is your membership in the WWBA important to you?

A:  My involvement in the WWBA has enabled me to collaborate with other attorneys, and for that reason it has been invaluable. I’ve enjoyed bouncing issues off my Co-Chairs and other members. Too often as attorneys we are isolated from our fellow lawyers, but the WWBA has enabled us to bridge that gap, learn from each other and support each other.

President's Message

by Hon. Lisa Margaret Smith

As I write this message, it is spring, with yellow daffodils and white jonquils already wilted in the garden, cherry trees blooming in blazing pink, and lovely scent-sational lilacs beginning to show their beauty. For more than a year now we have remained apart from one another, from all but immediate family, from festive gatherings, and from solemn proceedings, including funerals of those we have lost. Now, just as the world around us is wakening and everything is lightly covered with green, we, too, are opening our lives, beginning to gather, and reawakening in every way.

      Before COVID I had a limited social life, usually I was too tired or too busy to make plans with friends and relatives, but now I feel renewed. Once my husband and I were fully vaccinated, plus the passage of two weeks to develop immunities, we began to socialize, and we have not stopped. It feels like a new beginning-fresh, and full of hope. It is my sincere hope that as we continue to open in society, and as we install new Officers and Directors on June 9, WWBA will also have a fresh, new beginning, full of hope.
