Supplementary legal advice can be helpful in a family law matter

On Behalf of | May 3, 2018 | Divorce

I would like a second opinion on that.

That’s hardly an unusual request, is it?

In fact, we suspect that readers of our family law blog across Massachusetts solicit supplementary viewpoints on things of personal importance all the time. It is an act of prudence and extra input that can lead to more reasoned decision making.

Think about it for a moment. Don’t most people get estimates from two or three realtors when they want to sell their home? Isn’t it more common than not to reach out to a second doctor regarding an important health care matter?

It just makes sense sometimes for a person to widen his or her sources of information on important topics, something that is true across virtually every sphere.

Including family law, where final determinations on matters ranging from child custody and support to alimony, property division and myriad other matters can be flatly critical for how reality looks in the future.

The bottom line being stressed here is this: It is perfectly acceptable for a person going through the divorce process to call a timeout and solicit a second opinion from an independent legal professional.

Lay persons should know this: Virtually no experienced family law attorney representing a client will resent such a development. What is of utmost importance in a divorce or other family-centric matter is the client’s best interests, and it is simply a fact that additional input received from a dispassionate professional can sometimes promote an enhanced result.

The Wellesley Law Offices of Lisa A. Ruggieri provides second opinions on divorce agreements and settlements, and is most happy to do so. We know that our input can materially help a party dealing with uncertainty regarding complex matters. As we note on our website, case review can provide “an effective and cost-efficient second opinion.”

We welcome contacts to the firm and the opportunity to discuss matters relevant to family law.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
