And I think the word used is experience is really important; looking for an attorney with experience in family law. Knowing – it may sound silly, but knowing the other attorneys in the area is important. Having a reputation in the area is important. Knowing the judicial officers is important. It’s also important the level of comfort that you have. Do you feel that you can communicate with your attorney? Are they listening to you? Do they understand what your issues are going to be?
