Description of service

I hired a family lawyer for the purpose of getting a dissolution. There were children involved, so child support issues, as well as visitation and custody, had to be considered. The price quoted for the entire process was $1100.

Review of Service

I was very pleased with my attorney. He delivered quality professional services, and got a better settlement than I had even asked for. I didn't want to ask my ex-wife for anything, but he insisted that he was not representing me adequately if he did not do that. He handled a difficult case really well; my ex-spouse was not cooperative and tried very hard to make my life difficult. He was also very assertive in protecting my rights to see my child.


1. Ask around. Don't hire just any attorney; make sure you are comfortable with him or her, and that the attorney is fully capable of handling every aspect of the difficult legal proceedings you are about to undergo.

2. Don't be afraid to interview your attorney. Most likely, you will have to spend a lot of time dealing with him or her, whether by telephone or in the courtroom. It is best not to hire someone who doesn't "click" with you.
