We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

Iowa Child Custody Law Explained

In this video, our Cedar Rapids contested guardianship attorneys describe how Iowa law require courts to consider the best interest of the child and order a custody arrangement that will allow the child to maintain consistent physical and emotional contact with both parents when possible. This encourages parents to share the rights and responsibilities of raising the child. We at O'Flaherty Law understand the stress that can come with child custody cases. Never hesitate to contact us with any questions or for representation.

What Factors do Courts Consider When Determining Child Custody in Iowa?

In this video, our Cedar Rapids contested guardianship attorneys want people to understand that there are numerous things courts consider when determining child custody in Iowa. For example, facts about the child, parents, and the relationships between the two. In the end, both parents might share joint legal custody of a child, but the child might only live with one parent full-time. The considerations of the court can determine these outcomes. You may have grounds to contest this decision and we at O'Flaherty Law Cedar Rapids are here to help. Do not hesitate to reach out to us for further questions and exemplary representation.
