Resolving a particular family case requires a hands-on and well-experienced family lawyer to provide you with the necessary legal services. However, if your current family lawyer is no-show during this complicated time, then you must begin looking for a new one to hire.
It’s because what you need is a family lawyer who allocates time to analyse your case, as well as someone who focuses on delivering a better result. With that, check out these three signs that indicate you need to seek a new family lawyer here and now.
Thus, look no further, don’t skip a single sentence and find out the answers for yourself.
MAJOR SIGN #1: You can’t feel that the family lawyer cares for you and empathises with you.
Family lawyers are well aware that family cases are naturally emotional as they often pertain to legal issues, family matters, and other sensitive concerns that may involve parents, spouses, and even the children. With that, family lawyers must also possess a sense of care and empathy towards their clients aside from sustaining them with excellent legal services.
In addition to that, showing care and empathy is one of the best ways to get and nurture the client’s trust to the lawyer. Thus, if your current family lawyer seems to lack these traits, then it’s time for you to think about hiring a new one.
MAJOR SIGN #2: Your family lawyer can’t show commendable results or progress updates about your case.
Since family cases are often emotional and sensitive, it’s justifiable if the family lawyer won’t still be able to present results or progress concerning your case for the first few weeks or months. There’s nothing much to worry if your current family lawyer is clear about his/her plans and if he/she’s consistent in communicating with you.
However, if you’ve been asking your family lawyer for progress on your case, yet he/she’s unable to show even a minor update or little results, then this might be the right time for you to find a new family lawyer. Most especially if the case is ongoing for almost a year now and you haven’t yet seen any result, no court appointments, or no new details, and so on.
MAJOR SIGN #3: Your family lawyer often forgets essential details about your case.
One of the indications that your family lawyer cares for your case and respects you as his/her client is when he/she takes note of the essential information you’re providing. In that way, your family lawyer will be able to understand your situation in every inch.
On the other hand, if your family lawyer often forgets about important details or information about you and your case, then you might have a problem in with that. Not only that it might badly affect the progress of the case, but that’s a major red flag that the family lawyer isn’t capable enough to handle family cases competently.
The bottom line:
A reliable and well-experienced family lawyer is very much helpful in the pursuit of winning a family law case. Thus, if your current lawyer shows any of the stated signs above, then you better think about finding and working with a new one before filing a family case.
