There are lots of ways in this day and age to figure out where you are going when you need directions. You can get a paper map, use GPS, call someone or just ask someone on the street. If you get lost with a paper map, you are generally up a creek. Sometimes you need turn by turn directions, choices of your route, someone to call if you have questions, notice of traffic jams, and someone who has been there before. Have you ever had GPS take you to the wrong place? Yes, of course you have. You want an attorney who can steer you step by step, who has experience, who knows the hiccups and issues, who you can rely upon and call when you have questions. A good family law attorney is a combination GPS, paper map and a telephone.
