Family law attorneys bring their own perspective and approach to each case. From the length of the initial consultation, to the preferred method of communication, to the approach taken to respond to a client, we are all different. Some attorneys are more likely to be animated and direct, and some clients need an attorney who will be direct. Some attorneys want to hear and understand everything before acting, and some clients need to have their whole story heard and understood before committing to a divorce. Some attorneys provide information to client’s quickly, responding to concerns based on instincts and experience; while others work slower, researching all potential solutions and pitfalls of their client’s query before offering advice.
Someone looking for a family law attorney should consider what they want, and more importantly, what they need before hiring an attorney. Take time to do some research about potential attorneys. If your attorney isn’t meeting your expectations you should discuss the issues with them, and give them an opportunity to meet those expectations. If you begin working with an attorney and later discover they are simply not a good fit for you, determine what you are looking for, and ask whether there is another attorney in their firm that may be better suited to your case, or seek counsel outside their office.
Family law matters are highly personal and can be very tedious to traverse. Finding an attorney you can communicate with and trust is the key to feeling confident with the resolution of the case. While the approaches of each family law attorney at Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal, P.C. may differ, the goal is always the same: to advise our clients about their case taking into account many variables, the client’s goals, and the reasonableness of those goals and the facts as they appear.
