Qualities of an Experienced New York Family Law Attorney
Once you’ve decided to have a lawyer represent your family law case, you need to know what qualities to look for in an experienced New York divorce and family attorney. First look for an attorney that specializes in divorce and family law in New York. You don’t want to hire the jack of all trades, you want to hire the master.
