Helpful Questions You May Want to Ask Your Family Law Attorney

With nearly 20 years practicing family law in Jacksonville and surrounding areas, we’ve become accustomed to answering questions. Whether an initial divorce consultation or a very specific family law issue (alimony modification, child custody modification, or military divorce to name a few), our team has put together some helpful questions you might want to ask your attorney during your initial consultation.

  • Is your main area of practice Family Law?
  • What types of cases are you most passionate about?
  • How long have you been practicing Divorce and Family Law?
  • What is the average percentage of cases you’ve helped settle out of court?
  • Will you be personally handling my case?
  • Is mediation required in divorce cases?
  • What percentage of your cases go to trial?
  • What is your preferred method of communication (phone, e-mail, fax, etc.)?
  • How much will my case cost?


Of course there are other questions that might pertain to your specific needs or goals, but we hope this list gives you a good start when attempting to select an attorney to best represent you.
