Family law issues are difficult to work through on an emotional level, so picking the right family lawyer makes a difference. At the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter, we have some suggestions for choosing the right lawyer for your upcoming divorce, child custody, paternity, or property division case, and we recommend looking for these qualities in the legal representation you choose:

  • Compassion—More often than not, a compassionate lawyer is a good lawyer. Since many family law issues can be emotionally and logistically difficult, you want your attorney to understand how they can best help you on multiple levels.
