Why You Don’t Need An Aggressive Family Lawyer

Engaging a lawyer to advise and represent you if you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of family breakdown, and needing advice and assistance to navigate that process, is not something that most of us would want to have to do. It is however a reality that will confront a significant number of us at some point in our lives.

Is it important to hire an Aggressive Lawyer?

When we speak to people in that situation as they are at the start of the process and trying to get to grips with what is happening, we often hear people ask if we are “bulldogs” and whether we will be “aggressive”.

Whilst we can be those things if the client really wants it, or if the situation really requires it, we will always ask if that is really what you need? Most people only experience an engagement with the family law system once or perhaps twice in their lives. For us, it’s what we do every day. We have seen the process from beginning to end many many times.

Sometimes, individuals indicate that they want an aggressive family lawyer to represent them in their case. So we will usually respond by asking if an aggressive, bulldog approach is what will get you the best outcome? If it is not what you really need, the aggressive approach may mean that the time that you spend in the system is longer than it might need to be, that the emotional pain that you suffer is more intense than it needs to be, and the costs that you incur are much higher than they need to be.

What you actually need 

We also often hear that the only winners in the family law system are the lawyers. We prefer to think that because we are committed to giving our clients the advice that they need to hear, rather than the advice that they want to hear, that our clients are getting value for money.
