How To Choose A Divorce Lawyer

One of the most important decisions you will make in divorce is your choice of an attorney. Hiring the lawyer who incorporated your business or wrote your estate plan can be a huge mistake. You need to choose a lawyer who specializes in divorce and family law and practices it exclusively.

At Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark, L.L.C., our New Jersey divorce lawyers have years of experience in the area of family law. Whether you are going through a divorce or are considering filing for divorce, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. We represent clients in Morristown, Newark and other New Jersey communities. The firm’s partners are certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as matrimonial attorneys.

How to Choose a New Jersey Divorce Lawyer

There are no do-overs when it comes to issues such as marital property division. Therefore, you should hire a divorce lawyer who has experience in handling the same issues you are facing, whether that is the division of a doctor’s practice or the valuation of stock options. One statement you never want to hear from your attorney is, “I’ve never dealt with that before.”

You need a divorce lawyer who is both compassionate and aggressive. We often tell our clients they should hire a “compassionate but aggressive attorney.” In other words, you need a lawyer who is sympathetic and compassionate with everything you are dealing with now. At the same time, you need someone who can be aggressive with the other side. When push comes to shove, you need a lawyer who can protect your rights and move your case to a conclusion.

Your attorney should be flexible enough to negotiate an amicable resolution when a compromise is possible. However, he or she must be an aggressive litigator when a compromise is not possible.
