Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire a good family law attorney?

If you want to ensure you hire the best family law attorney for your case, be diligent when researching. Compare lawyers near you, read their client reviews and get familiar with their track record. Remember that all family law attorneys must be licensed to practice law.

The last step is to contact several different attorneys to set up consultations, determine whether it’s a good fit and get cost estimates.

Do family law attorneys handle divorce?

Yes, many family law attorneys handle divorce. They also handle a number of other divorce-related issues, including legal separations and child custody cases. Family law attorneys can help clients handle guardianship, establishing paternity, visitation rights, child support, extended family custody terms and other issues important to your family. 

What does a family law attorney do?

A family law attorney specializes in areas like divorce, child custody and guardianship. This can include working on cases that involve visitation rights, parental responsibility, child support, conflicts between parents and custody matters with the extended family.

How do lawyers get paid if they lose a case?

Lawyers typically charge for their time (typically a hourly rate) regardless of whether they win a case. Sometimes, the losing party is ordered to pay the other party’s lawyer fees on top of their own. Some lawyers also work on contingency, meaning they will take a percentage of the awarded amount only if they successfully win the case. 

Before hiring a lawyer, make sure you understand their fee structure.

Reviews for San Fernando family law attorneys

Although I did not choose Robert Greenberg to represent me in my Family Law case, I appreciated his responsiveness, knowledge, and professionalism that was shown during our consultation. He is well versed in the law and I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends, when/if they need a Family Law attorney.

In my opinion, hiring the right attorney is extremely important. I took a month (one per day) in “interviewing” and consulting with 20 different attorneys and making copious notes on each one. Robert Greenberg became my attorney. Being from out of state and needing powerful, confident and competent representation was a necessity. In every aspect of communication, he was very accessible and provided the path that we needed to pursue for a successful outcome. On a personal level, he was able to put me at ease when he felt I was seemingly stressed over the situation. He is able to bring a New York Bulldog attorney attitude along with a laid back California easiness within his persona and court manner, which I feel is a plus, especially when dealing with the uncertainty of court situations. I’m very pleased that not only were we able to have a successful verdict and am very appreciative and satisfied with his effort and performance. I am sure that those who “interview” dozens of attorneys (including Robert Greenberg) will find that retaining Robert Greenberg is a decision that will put their stressful family law legal issues at great ease. You will be happy by retaining him as your attorney. Chris T.
