If you are undergoing a divorce, or if you are experiencing a family law problem, it is likely you will need a divorce attorney. How do you find a good family law attorney? The answer is that there is no sure-fire way to find an attorney who is right for you.

Most importantly is that you find an attorney who will take time to listen to you and answer your questions. Make sure that you trust and feel comfortable with whomever you choose. Most people begin their search for a family law attorney by asking friends and relatives if they have used an attorney for a similar problem. Another common way to find an attorney is to ask for a referral from another expert, such as another attorney in a different field, an accountant, or even a famiy counselor. Other people prefer attorney referral services. However, beware, attorney services do not ensure the attorneys they promote are competent. Referral services are paid memberships that only require the attorney members to meet minimum qualifications.

You do want to make sure that the attorney you hire limits his or her practice to only family law matters; seems interested in your problem; takes time to listen; makes you feel comfortable; is anxious to provide you with information; has the answers readily available; and has been practicing law for a minimum of five years. Hiring an attorney is like buying a pair of shoes. Not every attorney is for every person. The fit has to be comfortable.

In short, there is no sure-fire way to make sure that the attorney you choose will be right for you. Follow your intuition, and choose the attorney you feel the most comfortable with.
