For the area of expertise, you would want to have a family law expert on your side. If your divorce lawyer is an expert on family law, he / she will be able to defend your case thoroughly. He / she will be able to guide you with regards to child custody, child support, and alimony issues. After you have established your lawyer’s expertise in this area, determine his years of practice in this area. Ask the lawyer to talk about the last divorce case he represented. Years of experience are really very important alongside with the area of expertise. If the lawyer has only practiced family law for a year, you may have doubts just then. You’ll feel safer with a divorce lawyer who’s had years of experience in his belt.

Make a list of questions and concerns so you don’t forget to raise them during the meeting.
Suing a lawyer is expensive so before you take the final step you should try: meeting your lawyer and laying the cards on the table, try and solve matters; complaint to the local Bar Association; or seek arbitration to resolve the dispute.

The lawyer you choose should be aggressive. A good lawyer should not be nice and soft. With a push over attorney you will end up getting what the defendant want to give you instead of what you deserve. A pit bull lawyer will fight and ensure that you get a good compensation.
