Job Description for Family Law Attorney

The field of family law is expansive, including areas such as custody, divorce, and adoption. The family law attorney is the professional hired to help guide clients through their cases and help achieve an optimal resolution through a settlement process or as their representative in court as they argue the case before a family court judge. Some family lawyers handle all, or many, kinds of family law cases, while others may tend to focus primarily, or even exclusively, on one aspect of family law (such as divorce lawyers and custody lawyers). More so than in most other types of law, family law can be a difficult process for clients because of the personal nature of many cases; family law attorneys must be able to help navigate their clients through emotionally difficult legal proceedings.
