Although a brand new experience for you, your family law case will not be your lawyer’s first rodeo. An experienced family law attorney that is sensitive to your needs will make all of the difference in the world for you.
At this juncture it is important to realize that across the board, every family lawyer is going to have similar knowledge of the laws that will affect your divorce case. There are no secrets.
What separates a lawyer from the pack is the unique legal strategy chosen, which governs how the shape of your divorce proceedings will likely unfold; the personal attention given to your case; the communication style used with you, your family members; other attorneys; and the Court; and the advice that you are given in how to proceed.
At the end of the day, the decision is yours and yours alone. What is most important is that you honor exactly where you are in your life and to be clear about your intentions moving forward. If you are living an authentic life and being true to your self, then the answer should be easier to make.
