How To Choose The Best Mackay Family Lawyer

By Family Lawyers Mackay, 10 Jan 2023
Family Law

Get it right

To engage the wrong solicitor to act for you could have dire consequences.

What consequences?

Negotiation skills are very important right from the outset.

Your case must be presented in the most skillful, informed, and well-structured way. Proper preparation is necessary. Your solicitor must have the skills and experience to elicit the right information from you and to present such information in a persuasive manner that would lead to a minimal argument from the other side.

The experience of your lawyer is an important factor. If not done properly it could lead to protracted and costly negotiations in the early stages of your matter. Mistakes would be hard to rectify as the matter progresses. team

How do you ensure your solicitor has the necessary experience

Make inquiries with your friends and associates and in particular with the Law Society. Check out the website of the solicitor you choose.

Most importantly choose an Accredited Family Law Specialist, that is, one that is recognised by the Law Society as having a high degree of knowledge and experience in family law.

Choose The Best Mackay Family Lawyer

An aggressive Best Mackay Family Lawyer will often lead to protracted litigation which is emotionally and financially draining.

Remember the result in Family Law is a fair and just result. An aggressive and bullying approach will not achieve anything greater than what will be achieved if a well-thought-out and less aggressive approach is adopted which will achieve the same result in a far shorter time and which will be less emotionally and financially draining. The same result will be achieved whichever approach is adopted. Don’t be fooled by a lawyer who believes aggression will drive the other party into submission. It never works in Family Law and tends to drive the parties apart.

If you still have a fair degree of rapour with your former partner a collaborative approach may be best suited to you to negotiate, with the assistance of the other party’s collaborative lawyer, a resolution that is in the best interests of all concerned. A resolution you can walk away from knowing is in the best interests of yourself your family and your children.

If your former partner adopts a non-conciliatory approach or is aggressive in her attitude and if that is reflected in the approach of her lawyer then ensure that your lawyer, although he may prefer a less adversarial approach to reaching a resolution, which is the preferred way of dealing with Family Law matters, has the necessary skills to neutralise the aggression portrayed by your former partner or their solicitor and is able to circumvent the aggression to obtain the best result for you.

If negotiations fail ensure that your solicitor has the necessary skills to litigate the best outcome for you.
