A London law firm is offering an unusual gift option this year; interested parties may purchase Christmas gift vouchers, good toward a half hour consultation with one of the firm’s divorce lawyers. Lloyd, Platt & Company usually charges 325 pounds an hour, but is offering the gift vouchers at a discounted rate of 125 pounds for a half hour. The firm reports that they have been swamped with inquiries since they announced the gift vouchers in mid December. They have sold more than sixty. A firm spokesperson said they were amazed at the huge response to the vouchers.
The Church of England called the vouchers “sad,” saying that divorce is a private matter and a session with a divorce attorney is not really suitable as a gift. But interest in the vouchers could continue to soar as the holidays get underway. Christmas is a particularly stressful time for families, and the number of people seeking counsel with a divorce attorney peaks in January.
