For separating parents, the process of agreeing to a shared parenting arrangement for their child/children can be an unpleasant experience. If you are in that situation you need to have a lawyer with strong negotiating skills to represent you and guide the process in a direction that represents your interests. If it appears that an arrangement cannot be negotiated and it is going to trial, then a judge will decide what is in the best interest of the children. In that case both sides will be telling the judge their side of why things should be decided in their favor. Both positive and negative aspects of each parent will be uncovered and considered. At this point you better hope that the lawyer you have retained is an experienced, skilled and aggressive litigator not just a negotiator. Recently I was involved in just such a case. I am so fortunate that I picked Christopher Yeazell out of dozens of other possible family law Attorneys. I am so impressed with him. He is the consummate professional and the complete legal representative package. When his considerable effort to negotiate a fair parenting arrangement failed and the matter went to trial, his professionalism became very evident. Like a skilled teacher, he put forth the facts in an organized and crystal clear manner, like a skilled surgeon, cut through the lies to expose the truths, and like an elite soldier, defended and attacked with timely precision. I was not sure this case could be won, but he was positive and reassuring every step of the way and a very favorable decision was the result of his expertise.Some other terms that could be applied to Attorney Christopher Yeazell are: Courteous but aggressive, responsive, accessible, cost conscientious, thorough, and diligent.For me, it all added up to a winner.

Dolman Law Group
Everyone at this law firm is so kind and professional. When I was injured in a car accident I didn't know what to do or how to proceed to get the care I needed. Being in a car accident is a stressful time and it can be even more stressful when you realize that the insurance companies are looking out for their best interest and not yours. It was a relief to have Dolman Law on my side. Another nice thing about this firm is that unlike the big law firms you see on TV you actually know who you're talking to. Mr. Dolman himself personally responded to my e-mails almost right away every time and that's something I really appreciated.

Dolman Law Group
I've worked with Mr. Dolman before and I can say that I would have no problem recommending them. Attorneys, in my experience, are typically dry and impersonal. Every time I spoke with Matt or any other attorney, they were the perfect balance of easy going and professional. I will also say that they made sure that I always had all of my questions answered. He even gave me his cell phone number. And on top of it all, he is an awesome attorney that will make sure you get what a great settlement. Overall, it was a great experience.

After getting into a car accident, I had insurance companies and doctors offices calling me everyday. I hired McGuire law Offices and they handled my case with extreme efficiency, giving me peace of mind until i got my settlement. The paralegal negotiated with the insurance and doctors to lower my bills and give me the maximum payment!! Thank you John F McGuire and your legal team at McGuire Law Offices!

Carlson Meissner Hart & Hayslett PA
The one thing I can say that would describe the amazing attorneys and staff at Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, is that with all the advertising that is done, approximately 80% of all the new cases are from the recommendation of very happy and satisfied clients. The clients have been the top and only priority, since 1971.

Going through a Custody Battle (yes, battle is the right word) is terrifying and stressful. The best thing we did during the entire process was to hire MS. SWEET. She went above and beyond and even returned our calls on Saturday evening! !! She is competend, knowledgeable and actually cares about the well being of the child.

All the attorney jokes you have ever hear DO NOT apply to Ms. Russell. She is a very caring and considerate individual who is very much interested in the best for her clients...even when her clients are on the brink of endless insanity and hang the phone up on her, she is still there.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
