  3. Specialized experience
  4. Results

Let’s dive into each.

1. Aggressive advocacy

Family law proceedings can get emotional and messy. When choosing representation, look for a lawyer who you feel will be professional while aggressively representing your interests.

“I had Tim Edwards in 2010 as my Divorce lawyer. He was very aggressive. I would recommend Mr Edwards if you are getting divorced!”

– Client Review

2. Compassionate support

Child custody and divorce proceedings can be an emotionally difficult experience. Along with the financial repercussions, from alimony payments to child support to division of assets, it can be overwhelming.

When choosing a law firm to work with, find someone who you feel can guide you through these difficulties with thoughtfulness and compassion, and who can give you an honest assessment of all of your options.

“One of the areas that I commend Mr. Edwards in, is his honesty. Not once has he ever misled me or gave me false hope… Mr. Edwards also displayed a genuine investment and interest into my case as he would ensure he did all he could to get me the most desired outcome in any situation.”

– Client Review

3. Specialized experience

In some cases of divorce or legal separation, you may need someone with experience in your specific situation.

For example, military divorce comes with its own unique considerations. In addition to a full understanding of civilian divorce laws, military divorce lawyers need to understand military laws affecting divorce. For military service personnel stationed in Fort Bragg (or abroad), experienced military divorce attorneys like the ones at Blackwell & Edwards are vital for guiding you through this process.

Collaborative family law is another area of specialization you may look for. In collaborative family law, each spouse hires a lawyer and the parties work to find a mutually acceptable agreement together.

4. Results

If there’s one thing more important than any other when choosing a divorce lawyer, it’s this: results.

Evaluate your lawyer for their ability to accomplish what you’re looking for.

“Attorney Edwards was able to bring a level-headed approach to my case and always stayed the course in terms of keeping focus on a equitable settlement. This was made even more difficult by my ex and his attorney as they were highly unreasonable, made false accusations against both myself and Mr. Edwards.

Never once did Mr. Edwards lose his cool despite these challenges, instead he displayed an unparalleled level of emotional intelligence which kept the case on-track. Mr. Edwards won my case.
