Choosing a Lawyer

The decision to hire a lawyer is a very personal one - one with many financial implications. The attorney needs to be skilled in the area in which you need representation. Family law is different from many other practices of law and requires individuals who can excel in this unique area.

It is critical that the family lawyer you choose have the same philosophical approach to accomplishing your goals.

Ultimately you must be comfortable with, not only your lawyer's skill level and experience, but his or her philosophy. Unlike large corporations and/or insurance companies who are simply writing a check, this decision will impact your monthly budget, your property, your children and your family in a significant way. As a result, you should have both professional and financial confidence in the lawyer you select.
