Divorce 101: How To Hire A Local Divorce Attorney


When hiring a divorce attorney – especially in cases with minor children –one of the most important considerations are whether the attorney is familiar with “what is important in your specific and unique case”.

If you reside in Parkland, Florida why hire a local divorce attorney who resides in Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale or Miami?

If your divorce attorney does not have children and is not familiar with your local schools, parks, sport programs, etc., how can he/she properly understand your issues and advocate your position when at mediation or trial?
