Legal matters can be a complicated and stressful process that has the potential to impact the rest of your life — so it’s safe to say that you need a lawyer in your corner who’s up to the job. Bespoke legal services are essential to achieve a positive resolution, but you’ll also benefit from the knowledge and advice you pick up along the way.

With family law matters such as divorce, child law, finance or anything else, your choice of legal representation is a vital decision that should never be rushed. You may be quick to assume that every family lawyer can take on your case, which technically they will be, this isn’t to say that they are the best person for the job.

In this post, we’ll discuss the value of bespoke legal services and why a specialist family lawyer is a vital asset during some of the more challenging legal proceedings.

Cheap Rarely Means Good

Several aspects can influence your choice of lawyer, but none more so than the expense. There is somewhat of a stigma surrounding lawyers when it comes to how much it will cost, and therefore many people choose to hire the cheapest solicitor they can find.

Although this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s impossible for a cheap family lawyer to provide a decent service — when it comes to instances that require bespoke legal services, is it really worth the risk? This is especially true during a divorce where marital assets and property are on the line, and an efficient divorce solicitor could be the deciding factor to ensure your future financial security.

When the time comes to choose a family lawyer, shopping around is essential to ensure that you find a firm which best suits your needs in a legal sense, but also so you’re able to align yourself with a family lawyer whom you can trust.

‘Bespoke’ Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Expensive

Following on nicely from our previous point, it’s also crucial to not be put off by bespoke legal services because of the assumption that it will cost a lot of money. At KMJ Solicitors, we work with a wide range of clients, many of which are on tighter budgets. It’s for this reason that we offer a FREE no-obligation consultation so that you aren’t out of pocket if you opt to take their case elsewhere.

We also ensure that our clients receive regular updates on the bespoke legal services we provide and how much it will cost. Hiring a lawyer who neglects to do this could present you with a nasty surprise when you realise that some additional costs have built up behind the scenes.

There’s No Substitute for Experience

A solicitor who specialises in all aspects of family law will prove to be crucial in situations that require a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of particular laws that pertain to your case. They will also have plenty of previous dealings with similar scenarios to your own, and be able to look back on previous cases to find unique solutions that other lawyers simply won’t think of.

An abundance of experience also demonstrates that they have been successful in the legal sector for several years and helped many satisfied clients along the way. Having faith in your choice of family lawyer is vital when it comes to something that has the potential to change your life forever. 

In-Depth Research and Creative Problem Solving

Every case, client and circumstances are different, meaning there’s no such thing as a ‘one-size fits all’ set of rules to apply to every situation. One of the essential and most beneficial traits of bespoke legal services is the comprehensive research that is carried out prior and throughout your case. A high-quality family lawyer will use a vast array of sources to ensure that they have everything they need to build a solid case and give you the best chance of being successful.

While all lawyers follow the same laws and regulations, what sets them apart in terms of quality and success is the way they go about solving the problems that lie in front of them. A bespoke lawyer has the capability and confidence to adopt creative tactics and an approach that many others won’t consider — and it’s this creativity that could be the difference between the success or failure of your case.
