How Do You Find The Right Family Law Attorney?

You Need To Get A Sense Of Comfort And Confidence

If you face divorce or any family law dispute, one of the most important decisions you will make is also one of the first — selecting a lawyer to represent you. As important as that decision is, many individuals are uncertain how to choose an attorney who will best serve their interests. Here are some important things to consider:

  • Experience — With important decisions like custody, support and the division of marital assets in the balance, it is important to work with an attorney who has practiced family law for a number of years. You will also want to work with an attorney who has taken cases to trial as well as resolved disputes outside of court.
  • Focus — A family law attorney who handles these cases every day is preferable to a general practitioner who jumps between several practice areas. At The Waldrop Firm, P.C., family law is our primary focus and has been for more than 20 years.
  • Personality fit — Simply put, you need to feel comfortable with your family law attorney. You will be spending a great deal of time with your lawyer and discussing highly personal and emotional matters. We offer a free 30-minute free consultation so you can meet with David M. Waldrop. We are confident you will be reassured that he is the right lawyer to represent you.
  • Knowledgeable — Not only does your attorney need to be fully knowledgeable about divorce in Tennessee or Mississippi family law, he or she must also have the additional resources necessary to properly value complex assets, access to additional counseling when necessary and be able to handle other issues that arise.

The Lawyer You Hire Should Be The One You Work With
