What Should I Look for in an NJ Family Law Attorney?

If you have a pressing family law matter that needs dealing with, you cannot hire just any attorney–your New Jersey family law attorney should meet several qualifications so you know you have the right attorney in your corner. Some of the most important factors you should look out for are as follows:

Your Attorney Should Be Dedicated to Practicing Family Law

There are many different fields of law, and while many attorneys will claim to be distinguished in many different fields, this is often not the case. You wouldn’t hire a plumber to fix your car, so don’t hire a personal injury attorney to handle your divorce. Retain the services of a knowledgeable attorney who exclusively practices family law. Our firm is wholly dedicated to family law.

Your Attorney Should Be Able to Answer Your Questions

When you attend your initial consultation with an attorney, your attorney should be able to answer your questions in an intelligent, straightforward manner. When an attorney cannot answer basic questions concerning your legal situation, it is time to look for another attorney who can handle your situation with experience and confidence.

You Should Feel Comfortable With Your Family Law Attorney

Not only should your attorney have a firm grasp of the law, but your attorney should also make you feel at ease and reassure you in your time of need. Of course, honest advice and realistic expectations are critical, but you should feel confident knowing that your attorney is the right attorney and that he or she is ready to go to bat for you. Our firm will provide you with our undivided attention, we will update you at every turn, and we will fight for the best outcome possible from start to finish.

Your Attorney Should Have Solid Online Ratings

Just as you wouldn’t eat out at a restaurant before checking its reviews, you should not hire a law firm before checking its reviews. Our firm maintains a near-5-star review on Google, which speaks volumes to our dedication towards our clients. Retaining the services of an experienced attorney is especially important when it comes to family law matters, as these legal issues are closer to home than most.
