On the other hand, a dose of gray-haired reality is sometimes needed, particularly when the process may have stalled due to unrealistic expectations of attorney or client, a failure to focus on needs rather than demands, or when one or more parties need to be reminded of the potential consequences of their failure to reach and agreement.
