For my story, one of the secondary characters is a lawyer. As you all know, in novel I'm writing, Alex's father is a lawyer. But how often are lawyers really home? Should I change him (the father) to something else? If anyone remembers, Alex is an abused and neglected teenager who attempts suicide (hense the tittle the suicide note). However, for abuse to happen; I need the abuser to be home. Should I make him a lawyer, or something else? Any thoughts on how I should research this, how often lawyers are home, are helpful. I know I should talk to lawyers, but I don't know any. So if you do, I could use your help. Edit: Thanks for moving it, forgot I should put it in here.
