I am going through a divorce. Which Attorney is right for me? Print E-mail
Written by Nathan Pinkhasov

Well, the answer is both simple and complex.  It depends on the matter and the facts and circumstances surrounding it.  With respect to matrimonial or divorce law, the right attorney can literally make or break your case.

First, the attorney must be competent in the relevant matter, and be abreast of any new developments in said matter.   The attorney should be aware of the significant changes that were implemented into Domestic Relations Law in October 2010, and how these changes may affect your case.

Second, your legal advisor must have a familiarity with the court system and have experience practicing before the presiding Judges in the County that you matter is being litigated in.   Knowing the Judges’ court rules and their anticipated responses to certain situations can help you, not only save thousand on you legal bills, but can literally change the outcome of your case.

Third, the attorney should be able to relate in some form or fashion to you story.  Without the attorney putting himself or herself in a similar situation, they may not be able to effectively assist you in your matter. 

Fourth, the attorney should be flexible and patient with the client.   Divorce can be an extremely difficult time in your life.  The last thing a client needs is a difficult attorney on her or his side.

Lastly, your legal advisor should be readily available at all times.   Things change very quickly during a divorce and certain developments require the immediate attention of your attorney.

I hope you realize that at the end of this blog that I was writing about myself and my firm and why I believe I am the best attorney for you.
