hiring a family law attorney
When hiring a family law attorney there is a difference between a highly skilled family law negotiator and a general practice attorney. Almost any competent lawyer can figure out how to file divorce papers in California. A skilled family law attorney, however, is more than that. He or she evaluates each case based on its merits and strategically determines what is in the client’s best interest.
Your divorce lawyer should be your advocate and your counselor from whom you will receive a strategic plan for your case. This strategy is not always seen in law firms but you will see it at the Law Offices of Alexandra McIntosh. This knowledge is usually acquired from years of practice in family law courts, and experience and knowledge of the local courts, judges, and procedures, enables our law firm to see how your case is unique.
Choosing the right attorney
Choosing the right attorney to represent you is probably the most vital decision when it comes to your legal separation, divorce or paternity action. With the skill of negotiating, your case may settle and close sooner, which is less costly for you. The additional benefit of a qualified lawyer is the comfort of knowing that if there are strong issues before the court, you have a strong, knowledgeable and aggressive litigator in your court.
Your advocate attorney’s advice may not be what you want to hear. However, you should choose an attorney that tells you what you need to hear. The best advice is given by the attorney who has the courage to give you the straightforward truth of what you can expect. You must be aware that in divorce proceedings, there is no win or lose. If the divorce is finalized and is equitable, you have succeeded. As a client of our law firm, you will be provided the facts and the alternatives so that you can make an informed decision with the knowledge and counsel of an experienced family law attorney. You don’t always get a second chance to litigate matters that have already been heard before the judge.
