Your Best Lawyer

Find "YOUR" Best Lawyer

Making The Decision To Divorce Is Very Difficult. Now You Have Another Difficult Decision To Make… Finding YOUR Best Lawyer

Your Lawyer Must Have A Complete Understanding of Divorce and Family Law

Family law is all we do. Just like your doctor, your lawyer should have an area of focus. It is not in your best interest to have a lawyer that takes all kinds of cases. For instance, a lawyer that practices divorce, personal injury, criminal law, and maybe other areas as well, can get lost when it comes to the nuances of your divorce case. Hire a lawyer that is dedicated to the practice of divorce and family law and understands the many details of that practice area.

Your Lawyer Must Not Only "Fight For You" But Your Lawyer Should Understand and Respect You!

Hiring a “pit bull” or “shark” as your divorce lawyer is fine, but you also need to make sure that your divorce lawyer will work with you and respect you. Fighting for you is important, but you also need to be able to work with that lawyer to develop your case, discuss evidence and strategy, and to prepare for negotiations, mediations, depositions, and trial. You need to find a divorce lawyer that knows when to use aggressive behavior and when to be a counselor and negotiator. Many divorce lawyers do not have both skill sets… make sure you find one that does!

Your Lawyer Should Understand and Excel In All Disciplines Of Divorce.

Do not make the mistake of hiring a divorce lawyer that is not skilled and trained in all types of divorce resolution. Many times a divorce is harder than it needs to be because a lawyer is only comfortable in one setting. For instance, if the lawyer you hire is only comfortable in court then he may miss or forgo other options that could successfully resolve your divorce, such as settlement, mediation, or collaborative opportunities. The best divorce lawyer will be able to assess your needs and adapt to any situation with the proper skill. Your divorce lawyer should fit your needs and best interests not make you fit into what they know or are most comfortable with!
