Lawyers tend to overuse the word aggressive;
divorce lawyers more than most. In many cases aggressive legal actions are exactly what
is needed to address a situation. But it’s even more important that your
family law attorney be acting first and foremost as intelligent and effective legal representation.
How do you know when your Arizona family law attorney is over aggressive?
You might have an over aggressive Arizona divorce attorney if you seem
to be wasting attorney fees on unnecessary actions. Over aggressive divorce
attorneys will churn your file wasting time on unproductive action and
giving the profession a bad name at the same time.
When You’re Looking for an Aggressive
AZ Divorce Attorney, Search for:
- A divorce lawyer that communicates with you regarding case strategy and
- A divorce lawyer that shares both the cost and the benefit of any actions
in the divorce case (prosecuting and/or defending).
- A divorce lawyer who makes a point of finding the most cost-effective and
efficient methods of completing tasks for the case.
- A divorce lawyer who takes time to update you on case progress.
- A divorce lawyer who can effectively communicate with you.
Your appropriately aggressive Arizona divorce attorney will agree with
you upon a strategy, a course of action and then pursue it governed by
the goals put in place according to your desires for the outcome of the
case. Aggressive action can include: settlement offers prior to heavy
litigation or before upcoming hearings or trials. This shows the court
that you are being reasonable and that you made honest attempts to resolve
the issues at hand. (Showing your willingness to approach reasonable solutions
outside of court is particularly beneficial if you are the main wage earner
and it is drastically more than that of your spouse or if you may be able
to recover attorney’s fees against your spouse on a need basis).
An aggressive, but not over aggressive, Arizona divorce attorney will make
adjustments to the strategy as your case moves through the system. They
will keep in close communication with you and make sure you are still
the compass guiding their path. Divorce is almost never completed in a
straight line; usually you have to make a few adjustments/turns along the way.
