Finding The Right Local Divorce Attorney in Saint James, NY

 Finding an excellent divorce lawyer in St. James who will help you navigate through the process of ending your marriage with dignity is extremely important.  Once you have made the first step of considering divorce, your next step is to find an attorney who concentrates their practice in divorce law.

When searching for a divorce attorney in St James, one of the most important questions to ask is “Who will be handling my divorce case day to day?” Some law firms have many attorneys on their staff and the one you talk to, may not be the attorney who actually handles your case. Similarly, some law firms will have multiple attorneys handle your case.  Most clients want one attorney who will handle their case and be completely familiar with their facts and circumstances.

We recommend working with a Principal attorney that has a minimum of ten years or more experience. We also recommend hiring a law firm that primarily focuses on family law and has strong knowledge of the local Courts and Judges. Equally important is a responsive, accessible attorney that makes him or herself available to you when you need them most.

At the Badanes Law Office, our Principal attorney handles each and every divorce. He will consult with you, prepare a plan, help you file for divorce (by e-filing) and be by your side for the entire process to help you get the best outcomes possible.
