Read the transcript of this video below.

If there is one thing you can be sure of in your divorce, it’s that you will be given plenty of advice. Well-intentioned neighbors, parents, and complete strangers will be happy to tell you war stories about their ex or about their sister who got divorced in some other state or some other country. Many will insist they know what you should do, even though they know nothing about the facts of your case or the law in New Mexico.

But there is one person whose advice will – and should – matter to you: your divorce attorney. The counsel of your attorney can affect your life for years to come. A good attorney does not just tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. You will never regret taking the time and energy to choose the right divorce attorney for you.

With clear and open attorney-client communication, you will obtain the best outcome possible for your case and your entire divorce will be less stressful. You cannot be afraid to ask your lawyer questions. Asking questions is the means to clear communication with your attorney, which in turn leads to understandable, if not always agreeable, results.

By working closely with the right attorney, you can trust the professional advice you receive. Call Little, Gilman-Tepper & Batley to discuss your divorce questions.
