Divorce Attorney/Mediator Wins Book Award
A Fairfield CT divorce lawyer/mediator’s unique divorce how-to book has won a National Indie Excellence Award for its uniquely compassionate, plain language explanation of divorce essentials plus rarely discussed “inside tips” on achieving more in divorce while worrying and spending less.
Fairfield, CT – Fairfield Connecticut divorce attorney and mediator Larry Sarezky has
won a 2017 National Indie Excellence Award for his family law how-to book, Divorce,
Simply Stated. The prestigious book competition is open to all English language books
from small, medium, university, self and independent publishers.
Sarezky is a past Chair of the Connecticut Bar Association’s Family Law Section whose
clients have included Fortune 500 CEO’s, MLB Hall of Famers, and Oscar, Grammy,
and Emmy winners. He has lectured to lawyers, judges, and therapists throughout the
U.S., and his legal commentaries have appeared in The Huffington Post and numerous
other publications. In recent years, Sarezky has made a second career of reducing the
financial and emotional burdens of divorce, especially for parents and children.
The NIEA award adds to the national acclaim for the Amazon #1 best seller: “… the
book stands out for its calm, deliberate, and winning tone, which feels both reassuring
and nurturing,” says Foreword Clarion Reviews “from the kind of divorce lawyer anyone
would want: funny, kind, laser-focused, nonjudgmental, and extremely informative.” Adds American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers past president Arthur Balbirer, ““Sarezky has written simply the best book of its kind.”
“I wanted to offer more than the standard divorce how-to book,” says Sarezky. “At this
point in my career, I wanted to share the strategies that have enabled my clients to
achieve their goals while avoiding the mistakes that plague divorcing spouses.”
To that end, the book includes rarely discussed tips from a veteran divorce insider on
maximizing results while minimizing expense, worry and acrimony. In addition to the
divorce essentials, the book also contains stress-reducing humor, and a holistic
approach to help readers cope, organize, relax, and even sleep better during separation
and divorce. To all of this, Sarezky adds personal touches such as illustrations by his 10-
year-old granddaughter intended to keep separating parents focused on their children’s
Saving money is a major theme of Divorce, Simply Stated. Not shy about poking fun at
his colleagues—or sharing their secrets—Sarezky explains divorce lawyers’ billing
practices and how to avoid huge legal bills that compound — rather than solve — clients’
problems. He also discusses additional opportunities for savings, including taking
advantage of special divorce tax rules and a “be-your-own-paralegal” strategy for
readers to organize their own cases much the way trial lawyers do.
Divorce, Simply Stated is available at amazon.com. To learn more about the book, visit
Sarezky’s other efforts to ease the burdens of divorce and separation include his
nationally acclaimed Telly Award-winning custody film, Talk To Strangers. The 25-
minute dramatic film is in use throughout the U.S. and abroad to dissuade parents from
pursuing unnecessary custody and other child-related litigation. It is accompanied by a
guide to help separating parents co-parent productively. “Watch it and learn!” declares
Harvard’s Alan Dershowitz about the film, which was created to “bring parents to their
senses.” More about the film can be found at www.ChildCustodyFilm.com.
