When you go to a physician with a health problem, you are likely putting your complete trust in that doctor’s expertise. You want him or her to evaluate you and, based on training and experience, offer you a diagnosis and best course of action.
The same could be said of seeking help from a plumber, electrician, car mechanic, psychologist or mortgage banker.
Unless you know a little about a lot – or a lot about a lot – you, like I, turn to the pros when we need a job done that falls outside our wheelhouse.
The same should apply to domestic lawyers.
I say should because in my nearly four decades of experience, I have come across numerous clients who seem to view me – the attorney – as the source and symbol of all anger and resentment surrounding their divorce.
While I certainly understand that divorce can be a very emotional experience, I am here to help. I am committed to your case, and that means working hard, being upfront (even with hard truths), fair and communicative.
And I, like all domestic lawyers, can do that most effectively when clients remain open, honest, amicable and respectful throughout the process.
So, how can you be sure you’re doing your part instead of earning a reputation throughout the legal community as a “problem client”?
