Benefits of a Large Law Firm

One of the first and most important decisions that a litigant faces is which attorney and law firm they should retain to represent their legal interests.  One way to narrow the selection process is for the litigant to determine whether he or she would prefer a large, medium, or small law firm.  This article is designed to provide a brief overview of the benefits in retaining a large law firm that has a well established Family Law Department.

The diversity of a large firm translates into one-stop shopping for all of a client's needs.  Matrimonial matters often include the valuation of businesses, real estate, stock options, benefit packages and art and collectibles that can range in value from the tens of thousands to the hundreds of millions.  There are other times where a divorce action presents complex trust and estate issues, bankruptcy issues, criminal matters, and tax questions.  When presented with these issues, a large firm has access to colleagues and departments that specialize in these and other areas of practice.  This is a tremendous benefit to the client.  

Another major benefit of retaining a large firm is that its hiring practice seeks the most qualified candidates who are well trained and mentored by senior lawyers who are leaders in family law. 

Despite the size of the firm, the Family Law Department and each lawyer should be devoted to maintaining a comfortable environment that caters to a client's individual needs to achieve their goals.  The end result is that a client can enjoy big firm benefits, but receive the attention associated with small firm practice.
