Hiring the wrong attorney at the onset of your case can be one of the most costly mistakes you can make during a divorce or custody dispute. Beyond the financial costliness, it can cause you to make poor legal decisions that will impact you for years to come. The quality of the working attorney-client relationship is vital to the success of your case. Clients and lawyers who work well together dramatically increase the likelihood of obtaining a favorable result.
The divorce attorney you choose to represent you should be local, professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and communicate well. Divorce is a highly personal and emotional process, the outcome of which can have a significant impact on your life. Choose someone you trust and feel comfortable with. Your attorney should support your basic philosophy toward divorce and have a style that works for you. They should recognize the importance of your children and put them first in the legal process by not making unreasonable child support demands or custody arrangements. And your attorney should be affordable - within your specific budget.
This is an important decision and, as with any legal case, there are never guarantees in this process. However, with the Frederick 20-20 Family Law Plan, you will have the support of a legal team who listens to what you want, advises you well and has your best interest at heart.
