Finding The Best Family Law Lawyer For You
Calgary family lawyers, also referred to as family law attorneys, are not all the same. A family lawyer is often called on to act as a advocate, litigator, counselor, guardian and more. It is important to find the right fit when it comes to picking A family lawyer in Calgary. The family law team at Kahane Law Office is happy to help you.
Picking From Calgary Family Lawyers
When you pick a lawyer to help you, a number of factors come into play. For example, these include:
Every client always wants an excellent family law lawyer. However, different family law situations require differing skill sets. For example, some lawyers love (and thus have a lot of experience with) working on child custody cases. Other lawyers do not have these experiences to draw from.
Years Of Experience:
Some matters really need Calgary family lawyers with much more experience because they include more technical or less cut and dry legal positions. For example, this includes things such as mobility related issues. Other areas of law are less disputed in terms of the current law. An example of this is child support.
You want your lawyer, and your relationship with them, to fit with your personality. assuming two lawyers have the same legal skills, some clients relate better to a more serious personality while other clients prefer to work with someone more relaxed and light when contending with serious family issues.
The “Bull Dog” family lawyer:
Not all client matters require the same hammer first approach. Some situations need a family lawyer who is very aggressive. Most do not, at least not right off the block. Taking a very aggressive position right from the start can lead to more stress, longer time for resolution and much more expensive legal fees. A better lawyer knows when to turn on the heat and knows when to use a less aggressive approach. We encourage using the “Bull Dog” approach as a strategic tool. We discourage it a s a way of practice if our client wants better results at a lower cost. However, if a client wants that approach, we take our client instructions accordingly.
Above all, you must trust your lawyer. Arguable, we should not act for a client who does not trust in our ability. The reverse is also true. You should make sure you trust your lawyer in terms of their legal experience, approach and ethics.
