Where Should You Start?
When looking for a family law attorney, you should find out if they specialize in your needs. Family Law is a broad area of expertise and most law firms with a focus in family law handle a range of cases such as…
- Child Custody
- Grandparents Rights
- Divorce Planning And Litigation
- Domestic Violence
- Parental Relocations
- Prenuptial Agreements
These are just a handful of cases that a family law attorney works on. If you’re unsure if a family lawyer is right for you, contact Lonich Patton Ehrlich Policastri. They offer a free 30 minute consultation where they can answer your questions and determine if hiring a family law attorney is your best course of action.
Are They Board Certified?
Along with specialization, you want to make sure whomever you hire is board certified. This means your attorney has extensive experience and credibility in their career. You can check if they are board certified on your state bar’s association website.
At Lonich Patton Ehrlich Policastri, they pride themselves on being experienced and board certified. This allows them to offer you some of the best legal advice in Santa Clara County.
Along with checking for board certification, you should hire someone who is highly reviewed. You can find reviews for lawyers easily by looking on yelp or google, and often law firms have a testimonials page.
Do They Have A Team?
You want to hire a family law attorney who has a team to work with. A law firm who doesn’t have a team of paralegals or other assistants runs the risk of being stretched too thin.
So, how can you tell if they have paralegals or other assistants? You will often find a page on the website with a list of attorneys who work at the firm. This will include other team members. For instance, LPEP Law has a page titled “Our Attorneys” that introduces the partners and attorneys in the practice.
The main thing to remember when hiring a family law attorney is to feel like your case is cared about. You want an attorney who will invest in your case and will work hard to get the best possible outcome for you.
Are they being honest about the reality of your case? Are they keeping you up to date with the progression of it? Do they empathize with you and share similar values. All of these are important questions to ask when considering a family lawyer.
