We know you have options when it comes to skilled legal representation. In fact, a quick Google search of the Dallas-Fort Worth area will yield pages and pages of quality family lawyer results. That said, you always want to choose someone who checks every box AND lives and works in your same community.
We’ve been practicing family law for over 30 years and have served thousands of families in a variety of legal disputes. In each instance, they expressed how glad they were to work with a compassionate and local family law office.
Can you hire a law office from another area? Perhaps. But here are four reasons why hiring a local family lawyer matters:
Skilled Representation at Your Fingertips
Communicating by text, phone, and email is easy in today’s world, but being able to schedule the time to sit face-to-face with your family law attorney – especially if their office is right down the road – is a luxury. It provides immeasurable benefits and comfort during a time in your life when emotions are running high and uncertainty about your family’s future after divorce dominates your every thought. Those personal interactions help us build trusting relationships with our clients and efficiently gather all the necessary information to help us build a strong case on your behalf.
They know the law
Laws can vary from state to state and sometimes court to court. In other words, how some courts in California act on your adoption case may not be the same as the laws in Texas. A local family law attorney knows the local and state laws and how they pertain to your specific case better than an out-of-state lawyer who is coming in to work on your case.
They know key decision-makers
There is a lot to be said for a lawyer who has developed close ties and solid working relationships with everyone from judges to court staff, police officers, prosecutors, and others. This is a value-added service we provide for our clients.
Working with a local family lawyer means they have worked on cases for some of your family, friends, colleagues, or acquaintances. Rather than read reviews from people you don’t know on social media or the law firm’s website, you can ask someone directly about the firm’s reputation and how it operates.
