Need help with a family law matter?

Family law attorneys have experience helping people just like you. With emotions often running high, choosing an attorney whom you’re most comfortable with is critical. State law, which varies vastly from state to state, dictates legal requirements and precedent as does your individual situation. Your family law attorney will work with you to resolve disputes and mediate resolutions that help you avoid litigation. Some lawyers focus their practice on specific areas of family law such as foster care, the rights of minors or the rights of gay or lesbian couples.

Need an attorney in Boston, MA?

Find the right attorney by reviewing and comparing our profiles of lawyers and their law firms, with details on each attorney and their colleague’s practice, experience, education, training, honors and fee structure. Carefully consider client reviews and recommendations from people just like you. If you have complex legal needs, a larger firm with multiple attorneys who can advise you in different areas may be the best fit. If your needs are more limited and very specific, consider a smaller firm. Speak with several Boston family law attorneys to find the one that is best for you.

Ask yourself the 3 C’s:

  • Credentials ‐ How many cases has this attorney worked on similar to yours?
  • Comfort ‐ Who are you most comfortable working with? Is the lawyer’s office nearby? How and how often will they get in touch with you?
  • Cost ‐ Have expected costs and fees been clearly explained to you? It’s OK to ask for an estimate.
