Hiring a family lawyer who is a good negotiator is essential. Since most cases settle rather than proceed to trial, it is critical that family law attorneys have good negotiation skills.
This will allow you, as the client, to work toward a settlement agreement rather than proceed directly to trial. While this may seem simple, reaching an agreement often saves clients time and money. We have also received feedback that reaching an agreement is less emotionally draining and that it is comforting to know that negotiations are going smoothly.
