One of the factors in selecting an attorney to hire in a family law case is location. Here in Tarrant County, Texas, more people are living in downtown Fort Worth and they may want to hire a lawyer with a downtown office for convenience. At the same time, many who work in downtown Fort Worth find it convenient to have a lawyer whose office is also downtown. Actually, as I have posted previously here, there are a number of factors which should be considered in choosing a divorce or family law lawyer. Location may be a factor, but I would suggest that you take a broader view and consider the following factors which were discussed in the previous post:
1. Start with the end in mind.
2. Perhaps the single best source of information is recommendations from your friends.
3. Look at the experience of the attorney.
4. Find someone who specializes in family law if you have a family law issue.
5. Pay attention to the approach the attorney recommends.
6. Consider the chemistry.
7. Discuss attorney's fees.
Choosing a divorce lawyer or an attorney for other family law matters is a very important decision. I would rate chemistry, experience and communication as the highest considerations, but recommendations and convenience are also important. I recommend that you investigate any attorney you are considering and be sure to look at more than one. Check out the attorneys on the Internet. Before getting started, spend some time thinking about what you want to end up with and what budget and source of funding you have to work with. Make your decision after meeting with the prospective candidates and carefully evaluate all the factors. Each person will weight the factors somewhat differently. You should decide based on your own unique situation.
