I just could not resist talking about the Glamorous Lie and mistress YaVaughnie Wilkins. I am a personal injury lawyer and usually talk about important things that I deal with every day like hunting accidents, auto accidents, dog bites, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, product liability cases, bike crashes, boat crashes, jet ski crashes, quad accidents, electrocution cases and all other serious injury and trauma cases. This is my knowledge and skill, but family or divorce law I do not handle. I have a number of good attorney friends that handle divorce or child custody cases and they tell me how difficult it is to be in the middle of a dispute between former spouses. I have a number of people that call me for recommendations of good divorce or family lawyers and I gladly give them a list if they insist.
If you read the article on Yahoo News written by Eric Pfeiffer about YaVaughnie Wilkins you will understand why I don’t get involved in any other type of law other than personal injury. To sum it up, this is what the papers are saying. YaVaughnie Wilkins was an upset girlfriend. She was the “mistress” of former Oracle Corporation President Charles Phillips. Phillips currently serves on President Barack Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Wilkins is a 43 year old woman that had an alleged relationship with Charles Phillips for over 8 years. After Charles Phillips ended the relationship Ms. Wilkins decided to get back at her former boyfriend and spent a reported $243,000 on several billboards around the country, including one in New York Times Square, attempting to put her former lover Phillips to shame. Now a documentary is coming out called “The Glamorous Lie” revealing telling secrets about her relationship (and in my opinion odd behavior) with Mr. Charles Phillips. Wilkins has taken the film’s director to civil court alledging that the director conspired with her former boyfriend Phillips to sell the film before its release in order to block distribution and blah, blah, blah etc.
The point I am making is this–though the YaVaughnie Wilkins case is interesting and makes good reading, I am glad I handle personal injury cases where I can use my best efforts to help people get fairly compensated for their injuries. This generally brings more joy when you are helping people on the plaintiff’s side. I believe I will stay a personal injury lawyer the rest of my life and not have to get tangled up in the “Spurned mistress YaVaughnie Wilkins” type of cases that debate about what is and is not appropriate to do to your former boyfriend and / or Lover.
