Does the Divorce Lawyer's Gender Matter?

In this blog about divorce, we often attempt to give folks who are going through a divorce some good, practical information and tips to discuss with their own divorce lawyers. So, here are some tips to consider in connection with the following "divorce question of the day!" 

Does it matter to you, if you are going through a divorce, whether you retain a male divorce attorney or a female divorce attorney? Naturally, since we are father and son divorce lawyers, we don't think so! We have many female and male clients! But I guess it depends upon the client's perspective, doesn't it?

While, as an Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyer, I don't believe the divorce lawyer's gender will have any impact on a judge or jury, I recognize that some men and some women, who are going through a divorce, may, for various reasons, feel more comfortable in choosing an attorney based primarily upon gender. Also, I will be the first to acknowledge that, in the Augusta, GA area, there are many competent divorce lawyers of both sexes.

However, we would strongly recommend that you should also consider other important factors besides gender, too, including the prospective divorce attorney's experience and whether or not you believe, after meeting him or her, that he or she will care about you and fight for your rights! In short, in my opinion, whether or not a divorce lawyer, male or female, seems focused on you and cares about your divorce case is more important than gender.

What do you think?
