What to Look for in a Shepherdsville Family Law Attorney

What are some of the qualities you should look for in a Shepherdsville family law attorney?  How do you know if you have the right attorney for your divorce, child custody, support or post-decree modification case?

One of the most important factors in any family law matter is experience and legal skill.  It is important to find an attorney with decades of experience in many family law cases like the matter you are facing.  Each county in the Louisville area has it’s own Family Court and you will need someone who knows the people and how to best accomplish your goals and objectives for the matter in front of you.

Empathy and your ability to connect with your lawyer are important factors to look for in a Shepherdsville family law attorney.  You want someone who understands every aspect of the matter, someone with guidance on how to manage not only the legal aspects of the case but the importance of self-care and making informed decisions based upon data and reasoning, not upon emotion or in response to a manipulative or controlling spouse.

You should be able to talk easily with your family lawyer, and feel comfortable sharing the types of details associated with the matter that concerns you.  Family law cases involve sensitive information about money, relationships, children, special needs and, in some cases, indiscretions.  Your family law attorney should be compassionate and relatable, and yet legally skilled and ready to stand up for the things that matter most to you.
