When trying to find the right family lawyer, it can be difficult to know where to begin the search. With a variety of firms and practices to choose from, searching for the one that fits your needs can seem like an impossible task. Knowing the right questions to ask can provide ease of mind and help make the decision simple.
The most crucial thing to look at is experience. How long have they been practicing law, how many family cases have they worked on before, and do they deal exclusively with family law? The more experience the better prepared the lawyer will be for handling any hurdles that arise during the process. It is also wise to hire someone with exclusivity to family law because they will be used to appearing in the courtroom with the judge that will be representing the case. This can be crucial in getting the result you want.
Another thing to be mindful of is your comfort with your lawyer. Do you feel as if the lawyer is fighting for you or are they fighting just to make themselves money? Ask about the strategy the lawyer will use in court to get a sense of their motivation.
