Hiring a Nassau County family law attorney to help you through your divorce, with a custody matter, or any other legal issue is no small decision. In fact, the attorney you choose can make a world of a difference in your case. Below, our legal team has compiled a list of some of the most important questions you should ask before hiring an attorney to represent you.

Important Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Family Law Attorney

To start, you should ask your attorney any question you may have about your case. However, there are certain questions you can ask to determine whether your attorney is right for you before going ahead and hiring one. Some of those questions are as follows:

  • Does the attorney have significant experience practicing family law? When it comes to working in the legal field, experience is one of the most important things. Our legal team has decades of combined legal experience, and we can put that experience to work for you.
  • Does the attorney know and understand the law? When you ask your attorney a direct question about your case, he or she should give you a practical a straightforward answer. No attorney can provide guarantees about the outcome of a case, but if your attorney can’t answer basic questions about your case, you should probably look elsewhere.
  • Do you trust that your attorney is the best attorney for your case? When you sit down and speak with your attorney, you should feel confident in their abilities and trust that they are the right attorney for you. Once we take your case, we will remain available to answer each of your questions, keep you informed of each development, and overall provide you with the quality legal service you deserve.
  • How is the attorney rated on Google? In today’s day and age, most of us will read up on a restaurant’s reviews before dining there. This philosophy should also apply to the attorney you choose to handle your family law matter. Barrows Levy, PLLC has nearly 300 5-star reviews on Google, proof of our unwavering dedication to the well-being of our clients.
