A family law lawyer knows that when family issues become legal issues, there are always complex and deeply emotional concerns involved. Those emotional concerns can make people prone to making irrational legal decisions -- and a family attorney has a significant ethical obligation to make sure that their clients don't make decisions that will ruin their lives.
Family law covers a wide range of different family issues, including but not limited to:
That's only most of what a family attorney has to learn and deal with -- the number of niches within family law is staggering. All of them have a few elements in common, however: each piece of legal advice a family law lawyer offers quite literally shapes the futures of not only the client, but other people (the client's family) as well. That makes family law an area of legal practice that requires extraordinary empathy as well as legal expertise, and our lawyers our proud of both.
One of the things we believe firmly at Schmidt is that family matters. There are no circumstances under which someone involved in a family-related legal matter should ever be processed by default or put blindly through a pre-made, one-size-fits-all system. If you're a family law lawyer, you've signed up to be the person who listens to all of the drama and help figure out best course of action and/or solution for the particular case -- and that's what we try to do for each and every one of our clients. Even if you're not sure that family law is what you need (for example, an estate planning attorney isn't necessarily an expert in family law and vice versa,) someone at Schmidt Law Firm is here to listen provide you with the best legal advice we can for your particular case.
