    Why You Need a Good Attorney to Help with a Divorce Mediation

    A divorce mediation attorney who is knowledgeable and supportive in helping you navigate a mediation can make a tremendous difference in the positive or negative outcome of your divorce. Each state has its own rules and guidelines regarding divorce and mediation, so this blog will look at Florida, where mediation, before a divorce can be scheduled in court, is a requirement for almost every jurisdiction. First, what is mediation? Mediation is a meeting between the two divorcing persons, each with their attorney and a court-trained and licensed mediator. In Florida, a mediator licensed to mediate is given the title of Licensed...

    Did You Know Our Retainers are Refundable?

    Gone are the days when a handshake was all that was needed to secure a service that would be paid for when the work was completed. Unfortunately, some people will take advantage of a situation where they think they can get the work done and then walk away without paying. And an attorney deserves to be paid for their work. Many years of education, passing the Bar exams, setting up a practice, paying for legal costs such as filing motions and attending mediations and depositions, and completing continuing education requirements have a significant cost. So It is that the practice...

    When is it Time to Hire a Lawyer?

    Hiring a lawyer is an important step in planning and negotiating most legal proceedings. As to the exact time to hire a lawyer, the answer, in most cases, is the sooner, the better.

    Why You Should Hire a Board-Certified Lawyer

    Hiring a lawyer is usually a serious consideration and should not be done hastily. You should take your time deciding the right lawyer to represent you, one that meets the needs of your particular case. By checking out several lawyers who are licensed to serve your judicial county, you can check for qualifications such as education, years of active legal practice, recommendations from friends and family, areas of specialty, fee schedule, and personality.

    Why it is Imperative to Follow Your Lawyers Advice

    To begin with, you have likely taken time to investigate several lawyers before you settled on the lawyer who will be handling your case. Such considerations as education, mission statements, years in practice, extra credentials such as Licensed Supreme Court Certified Civil Mediator, and in Florida, Bar Board Certified all make for a legal professional well qualified to litigate on your behalf. If the lawyer you choose offered a free, initial, in-office consultation, you will have an idea of his or her personality and an understanding of the fee schedule. Taking all this into consideration, you should have little trouble...

    Why Phone Consultations Are a Bad Idea

    It is very likely that sometime during your life, you will need to use the advice and perhaps the representation of an attorney. For many years the Yellow Pages were where you would look for an attorney in your community along with asking for suggestions from family and friends. Not any more. Today the way to look for an attorney involves not only asking family and friends but using the internet and researching several websites. Once you have narrowed your search to, say, three possibilities, you will want to arrange a consultation for the final comparison. Attorneys will offer an...
