A #FamilyLawAttorney is an attorney who handles the legal matters of families including marriage, divorce, child custody, property, ownership, etc. When a person has a legal issue in family matters a family law attorney needs to be hired.
Here are guidelines to finding the #BestFamilyLawAttorneyNearMe:
Research the Law Firm
Research family lawyers in your area and gather information about his or her background by going to the website for the law firm. You also want to go to social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn to learn more. Be sure to go to review sites such as AVVO and Yelp and Google My Business to learn what others are saying about your potential family lawyer.
Schedule a Consultation
Call the family law attorney you decided to research to get a consultation. This gives you the opportunity to find out who the attorney is and how he or she can best assist with your case. Some attorneys charge a consultation fee; at Looney & Conrad, our consultations are free.
Bring Your Documents to the Consultation
When you call the family law attorney, ask what documents you need to bring with you for the consultation and then take copies of the documents with you. Leave the original documents at home in a safe place.
Think About Your Case
Gather details about your case and make notes to ensure you give the family law attorney every piece of information you have. The family law attorney will ask a lot of questions and you need to answer them properly and in detail. Even what may appear to be a minor detail can make a difference in winning a case in court.
Make the List of Questions to Ask
Bring a list of questions with you that you want to ask the family law attorney about your case, about the lawyer and about the fee.
The sooner you make the decision about which family law attorney to hire, the sooner he or she can begin work on your case and the sooner you will get the issues resolved.
