If you don't have an attorney and would like to select one to represent you, you must do your homework. The questions you need to ask should include, but are not necessarily limited to the following:
Does the attorney specialize ONLY IN FAMILY LAW, or does (s)he have a general law practice?
What percentage of the attorney's business is family law?
How experienced is (s)he in family law?
We focus our practice on family law and do not accept any other matter. Our court is the Family Court
IF YOU HAVE AN ONGOING MATTER:
If you have an on-going matter, obtain your file, write down all your questions before making a consultation appointment. Then:
Consult with at least 2 attorneys who limit their practice to Family Law; Ask ALL your questions during the consultations; Don't be shy about asking the attorney for his/her Family Law experience; Take what you learned to the next consultation, ask the same questions. If the answers you receive contradict with those previously obtained, ask for clarifications.
