Doris C - Virginia - Child Custody

When Doris C. of Virginia needed a Maryland family law attorney in order to reexamine her residential custody agreement for her 8 year old son, she had few places to turn. "Though I was born and raised in Maryland and lived there for 32 years, I didn't want to go back to my old attorney there. Some of my friends recommended attorneys, but in many cases I wasn't able to access information regarding their background or credentials to see if they would be a good fit for me. What I really needed was a way to search for attorneys who had legal experience with my specific situation," recalls Doris.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, Doris wanted to get the process rolling, and after presenting her case on LegalMatch, an attorney quickly responded. "I didn't want a drawn-out, acrimonious battle and my LegalMatch lawyer was sensitive to this request while helping me to negotiate new agreements for the holidays and next summer." Though her case is still pending, Doris feels reassured that through her attorney and LegalMatch, her case is now in the "hands of professionals."
