Just over 3 years ago my husband and I got divorced the process was pretty tough as we had business interests together and there was some resistance on his part to make an agreement which everyone could be happy with. I knew that a good friend of mine could help me out and David Serna attorney here in Albuquerque and easily the best criminal defense attorney in the state of New Mexico was kind enough to put me in touch with some great family law firms. If you don’t have a friend who can put you in touch with a great lawyer, here is how to go about finding the best on your own.
The first thing that you need to focus on is getting the right attorney for the job and someone who will specialize in your case. As mentioned above David Serna is without doubt the best lawyer when it comes to criminal defense that I know, and if I we’re charged with a crime he would be the first person who I would call. Sadly he isn’t an expert in family law which is why it is so important that you find a specialist for your needs, and not a jack of all trades.
During the course of your car you may need to visit your lawyer’s office on multiple occasions which is why you should ensure that you find a lawyer is lives more or less in your area. If you live in Albuquerque for example then it wouldn’t do you much good to go and find a lawyer who works in Santa Fe, unless they were the very best at what they do.
The best way of going about getting the best lawyer is to get a list of around 3 or 4 who are operating in your area, and who have the specialization that you are looking for. Once you have this list make appointments with each of them to discuss your case. There is nothing wrong with making multiple meetings and you will never have to decide on the spot whether or not you will chose a certain law firm. The meetings are very important and you need to make sure that you feel very comfortable with the lawyer with whom you are talking to. You also need to ensure that you are made to feel confident in the lawyer who you have chosen and that you believe they care about your case.
The final part of choosing which lawyer you plan to go with is about weighing up all of your options and information. Thinking about price, professionalism, how you feel with each lawyer and of course their location, make the decision based on these factors.
If you take the time to get the right lawyer then you have a far better chance of being successful in your case.
