How to Find the Best Attorney to Provide Representation in a Divorce Proceeding
The term “Best Attorney” is subjective and can have various meanings.
Many experienced family law attorneys are very competent and can provide excellent representation in a divorce proceeding.
In terms of selecting an attorney, clients have the internet and social media available to attempt to identify appropriate law firms and attorneys within those law firms.
Clients may have had friends or relatives that have been involved in a divorce proceeding and those persons may also be capable of making appropriate recommendations, in terms of law firms and attorneys.
There can be articles in the newspaper that identify certain law firms or attorneys that may appeal to a prospective client for representation.
Clients could attempt to contact attorneys and/or bar associations in terms of any recommendation of appropriate attorneys to provide representation.
If clients have the time, they could go to the Courthouse, and with respect to proceedings open to the public, they could view hearings otherwise watch certain attorneys in action.
The above are but a few ways to attempt to identify competent representation in a divorce proceeding. Regardless of the law firm or attorney hired for representation, the attorney-client relationship is based on trust, hard work, competency, experience, personalized attention, knowledge of the facts, knowledge of the law and the willingness by the law firm or attorney to make appropriate time to give priority to a particular client.
In deciding child custody, the Illinois court does not consider the gender of the custodial parent. The court considers all relevant factors including the wishes of the child's parents, the wishes of the child, the relationship of the child with the parents, siblings, and any other person who significantly affects the child's best interest, the child's adjustment to home, school, and community, the mental and physical health of everyone, any physical violence by the child's potential custodian, whether directed at the child or at another person, episodes of repeated abuse whether directed at the child or directed at another person, and the willingness and ability of each parent to encourage a close relationship between the other parent and the child.
