How to Hire an Experienced Family Law Solicitor
Going through a family law matter can be hard enough and if you haven’t ever needed to hire a
lawyer before how do you even know what to look for?
There are a few key qualities you should be on the look-out for when choosing a family law
solicitor, these include being:
Not all lawyers have experience in the area of family law. A lot of lawyers that work for bigger
generalist firms practice in a variety of different areas of the law. This does not necessarily
mean that they are not good at what they do but it does mean that they have less experience in
the area than a solicitor who practices solely in family law. When it comes to family law
matters, there is often a lot at stake so it is important to ensure that you engage the services of
someone who knows what they are doing and how to get the right outcome for your situation.
A good family law solicitor will come with good reviews. Be sure to do your research
A good solicitor will listen to your concerns and take your instructions without being
judgmental about your circumstances. They will be able to provide you with a realistic
expectation of how the matter will progress and explain the various processes that you may
need to go through before the matter can be finalised.
A good solicitor will respond to your emails and telephone calls in a timely fashion. This may
not always be the same day but you should always receive a response within 48 hours unless
there are extenuating circumstances. A good solicitor will ensure that you remain in the loop at
all times including providing you with copies of all court documents and correspondence from
the other side as they come to hand.
A good family law solicitor will actively engage in good faith negotiations with the other side
(where appropriate) in an attempt to resolve your matter without exposing you to the stress
and escalated costs associated with going to trial if it is not necessary.
The best family law solicitor will be experienced, reputable, able to communicate with you in an
easy to understand manner, respond to your emails and return your calls and be focused to
help resolve your matter in the most efficient and cost effective manner practicable.
