Westborough, Massachusetts - May 22, 2012 - CiCi Van Tine, chair of Mirick O'Connell's Family Law and Divorce Group, was interviewed this morning by WBUR about the implications of Facebook posts in divorce cases.

WBUR’s Morning Editionhost Bob Oakes spoke with CiCi Van Tine, a divorce attorney with the Worcester-based firm Mirick O’Connell.
