Interviewing your potential family law attorneys

When you are facing the challenges of a divorce, a child custody issue, a child support dispute, a paternity action or a domestic violence situation, it is important that you retain experienced legal counsel.

You need to find an attorney who you feel comfortable with, whose approach fits your needs and who will work with you to achieve your specific goals.
