Family Law

How to choose the right Family Lawyer

Finding the right Family Lawyer for you is essential.

Going through a separation can be an emotional time. Sorting out a parental plan and property settlement can add stress and anxiety.

You need a lawyer who you trust and feel comfortable with. A lawyer who you know has the experience and knowledge to support you.

We’ve developed a list of tips to help you make the right decision:

1. Choose a lawyer who actively practices family law. This may seem somewhat obvious, but different areas of law have different complexities. You want to ensure your Lawyer is active in this particular field.

2. Seek referrals. Your family or friends may have recently used a family lawyer. Use the google review tool when you search your local area. These reviews are generated by the firm’s actual clients. They will give you a real insight into the firm’s practises and work ethic.

3. Call the firm and speak to them. This will allow you to get a feel for the firm. Do they sound professional, friendly and compassionate? If possible, speak to the family law solicitor to help you make your decision.

At Sheridan Legal we have seen clients who have already spent a considerable amount of time and money on a lawyer who didn’t suit them. It’s a costly mistake, and an important decision for you to get right.

Our compassionate team of solicitors are experienced in all areas of Family Law. On your first appointment we’ll establish a plan and a fee estimate will be provided to you, upfront.

If you are in need of a good family lawyer, don’t hesitate to call us. Our friendly and professional team are ready to talk you through the initial steps.
