Family matters can be complex, deeply personal and emotionally charged. Every client has a unique set of facts. The relationship between an attorney and a client can make a big difference in how your divorce proceeds. You need to be able to communicate frankly with your attorney from the beginning. Decisions you make early in the case can have a determinative effect on the outcome of your divorce, custody issue, or post-judgment case.
