4 Questions You should Ask Before Hiring a Family Law Lawyer

Trying to navigate the legal system can be complex and confusing. Don’t let your interaction with your attorney be one of the toughest challenges. Here are 4 questions you must ask before hiring a family law attorney.

  1. How many years of experience do you have? Family law is ever changing. You need an attorney that has the years of experience necessary to operate in the system. While law school helps a person think like a lawyer it doesn’t prepare someone to practice in front of the court for family law. This only comes with years of experience. The Justice Legal Group has over 20 years of experience in family law.
  2. How do you bill? This is one of the most confusing and frustrating parts of an attorney client relationship. Clients need answers, yet traditional law is inefficient. Every time you call or email or ask a question you don’t know whether you’re going to receive a $50 bill or a $300 bill. That is why our firm created the Simple Fee Guarantee. No longer do you have to worry about what is being charged. Take the guess work out of the billing process.
  3. What is your case load? If an attorney has too many cases they won’t give you the attention you need or deserve. We cap the number of cases our attorneys can handle so that they are always able to address your needs and concerns.
  4. Do you go to Court? This sounds odd, but there are many attorneys who just write letters and strive to negotiate. These attorneys are now willing or able to try a case. Make sure your attorney has litigation experience and won’t short change your case because the attorney wants to avoid litigation.

These four questions will give you the answers you need to start assessing whether the attorney you choose is a good fit. Take the time to ask the questions and listen to the answers.
