How to Pick a family law attorney…If you are going to spend a couple hundred dollars or even few thousand dollars, you want to spend some time getting an attorney that you trust and can rely on. Most people do not really know how to pick a good lawyer but you should trust your instincts. Do they answer your questions? Are they comfortable giving you advice? Do they listen? We have a saying in our office that our clients don’t care how much we know until they know how much we care. You want an attorney who can separate their life from yours but one who also has understanding and compassion with your situation. Attorneys should not make you feel insignificant or that you are doing them a favor by being their client. If you like them and can talk with them, you have a great deal of positive going forward to work with them. Ask questions…if they are offended, they are not for you. What is their end game for your case? What is their strategy? What is their philosophy on settlement?
