Best Family Law Attorney Chicago

Best Family Law Attorney Chicago

Divorce and parentage cases can involve intense emotions. Marriage, divorce, adoption, paternity, and related issues are not easy, which is why you should seek the best family attorney in Chicago to represent your interests.

Our lawyers at the Law Offices of George M. Sanders, P.C. are skilled in handling a wide range of family law matters. We also have the compassion to understand that how personal these issues can be. Your success with retaining a top family law professional starts with gathering as much information as possible about that person and/or firm. Here are a few questions to kick things off.

How to Find the Best Family Attorney in Chicago

  1. How long have you been practicing family law in Chicago? All lawyers must graduate from law school and pass the Illinois bar to practice in Illinois. However, this vast amount of knowledge must be accompanied by considerable experience. Certain skills only come from several years of representing families in court, mediation proceedings, and handling family law issues that arise outside of the courtroom. In addition, the procedural rules in Chicago and Cook County courts are specific. In-depth knowledge of them can only come with time.
  2. What areas of law do you focus on? Family law covers so many legal specialties that many general practice firms incorporate one aspect or another. Still, family law requires an entirely different set of skills. You may want to reconsider your options if the majority of an attorney’s cases relate to bankruptcy, DUI, criminal defense, or personal injury.
  3. Have you handled other cases like mine? Family law cases are rarely as clear-cut and there is a wide variety of concerns within any given family law case. You should seek out an attorney who has worked on cases involving the same or similar issues as those you are facing.
  4. Who will be my primary point of contact? Paralegals and legal assistants are useful as support staff, but they should not be the only people you work with in an Illinois family law matter. Your lawyer should be dedicated to you and your needs. You are entitled to receive responses to messages, regular updates, and answers to your questions directly from your attorney.
  5. How do you charge for legal services? Your budget is an important consideration and contingency fee arrangements (in which you don’t pay unless you win) are not allowed in family law cases. You should discuss billing with your lawyer, so you are not surprised or placed in a difficult financial position.
