How do I know which family lawyer is right for me?


Family law is clearly an emotional and personal area of law. It is important to ensure that you feel comfortable and that you trust who you chose to represent you.

Here are some questions to ask yourself after meeting with a family lawyer:

  • Did I feel comfortable and safe discussing my family matter?
  • Was I given realistic advice on how to progress my matter? Or were they just telling me what I wanted to hear?
  • Did they help me understand the law and how it applies to my matter?
  • Did they listen? And understand?
  • Did they empower me with the information to tackle the matter myself? Or did they make me feel completely dependent on them?

It is important to remember that family matters are not like other legal matters. Your family lawyer should not make you feel vulnerable, challenge your facts or make you feel uncomfortable.

At Anchorage Legal, our policy is to empower our clients whilst maintaining honesty, integrity and their best interests. If you have any questions about our family lawyers or would like to make an appointment for an initial consultation, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
