Do I Need A Lawyer?

Notwithstanding age-old stereotypes about attorneys, many lawyers are simply good, hard-working people like you. They view their job (and, in fact, their duty) as helping clients navigate troubling times within a vast legal system. At least that’s how the team at Coast Family Law sees it.

The truth is, the legal system is complex. There are local, state, and federal laws to consider. Both state and federal systems have multiple levels of courts and each of those courts has its own unique set of rules, processes, and procedures. Experienced lawyers can help you navigate these systems with ease.

Importantly, when it comes to family law issues, lawyers can act as your personal advocate during some of the most challenging times of your life. While you may be feeling emotional or scared, your lawyer can act as your anchor in the storm. At Coast Family Law, everyone on our team has been in your shoes at one point or another. We understand the emotion of the moment and we are willing to step in and be strong for you at a time when you may not be able to find your own strength.

Additionally, we have years of experience behind us. Not only are we familiar with the laws and court processes, we also know many of the judges and opposing attorneys in this area quite well. We have good relationships with them and a mutual respect that comes from years of hammering out family law resolutions together.

So, if you’re asking yourself whether you need a lawyer, our answer is honest and simple. You may be able to get by without one if your family law issue is simple and relatively uncontested. Even then, we’re happy to step in at any point in the process if things become too complicated. Ultimately, however, we believe our expertise, efficiency, and focus on North Oregon Coast clients combine to achieve the very best results for those we serve.
