Family law cases are usually deeply personal matters, and as a result, it is extremely important that you feel that you can trust your attorney.
In order for your attorney to represent you in your case, you will likely need to disclose a lot of sensitive and personal information. You need to feel that you can share this information with your attorney, but also that your attorney will not share the confidential information that you provide. Family law matters are also emotional and tense at times, so you need an attorney who will listen to and understand your emotions. More importantly, however, your attorney should encourage you to think clearly and make rational decisions in this extremely emotional time. After all, you don’t want to be stuck with an outcome that you don’t like just because you were upset at the opposing party.
Make sure that you find an attorney that you are comfortable with and can trust with your very important family matter.
