At the Arkansas family law firm of Robertson, Oswalt, Nony & Associates (with offices in Little Rock and other locales across the state), we modestly submit that any attorney who does not deeply care for every client walking in the door could not last long in our business.
For starters, individuals and families having dire legal needs in the important realm of family law would quickly enough see through any subterfuge on an attorney’s part.
And, additionally, a lack of empathy and sincerity would doom that attorney from the outset. Family law-related concerns are seldom trivial. In fact, they often cut to the heart of what is most important in the lives of individuals needing help.
Children’s welfare is at stake. Perhaps family violence is an immediately urgent issue. Maybe an existing court order regarding support or another matter is no longer relevant and needs to be modified. A soon-to-be e-spouse might be hiding assets, which could have an adverse effect on an equitable distribution of property in a divorce.
Any attorney who does not readily empathize with such important matters and seek earnestly to promote a best-case outcome for clients every day will likely never hit the mark for either compassion or effectiveness in legal representation concerning family law matters.
We note on a relevant page of our website the reality that some attorneys “fail to be responsive or do not look out for the best interests of their clients.”
We would patently hope that no client of our firm would ever regard our representation as lacking for such reasons. As we state on our site, we firmly regard ourselves as gatekeepers for our clients who need meaningful access to the courts and equitable treatment under the law.
We always welcome contacts to the firm, and we stand ready always to professionally deliver on behalf of clients who need our assistance concerning any aspect of family law.
