It stands for the approach of negotiating peacefully while simultaneously threatening with the "big stick". The "big stick" in the political world meant military and agression. While many scholars debate if this policy is effective in politics, I think it certainly applies in the matrimonial and family law practice.

New York can be such a great place to be for the holidays, but that...
