How to be sure you hire the right family lawyer

Ask these questions before you hire anyone to handle your family law matter:

1.  Do you concentrate on family law?  Family law issues are very complex.  You want an attorney who limits their practice to family law issues.  You want an attorney who will recognize the issues in your case, know the recent changes in the law and and be sensitive to the difficult process you are going through.  You don't want someone who dabbles in family law issues.  Betsy Fischer practices family law exclusively.

2.  Are you trained in alternative forms of dispute resolution?  90% of the cases are resolved by agreement without ever going to court.  A lawyer trained in other forms of dispute resolution can save you significantly in time, money and heartache.  Betsy Fischer is trained in mediation and collaborative divorce.

3.  Can you tell me upfront how much this is going to cost me?  No attorney can guarantee how much your case will cost.  You do not have control over the other party or who they hire as an attorney.  Some attorneys do attempt to resolve your case.  Other attorneys want to litigate issues to run up a client's bill.
