Q: I am going through a contested divorce. I feel like my attorney is not aggressive enough? I end up asking questions that she should be. We constantly go to court and get NOTHING accomplished. Can I ask her to be more aggressive? Can I fire her when I owe her money? I feel like she's going to lose me my kids!
A: David's Answer: Sure - you can always ask your attorney to be more aggressive - but with the proviso that the more the attorney does on your behalf, the more it's going to cost you. Thus, if you want your attorney to "roll up her sleeves," hopefully you have a good war chest to invest in the fight. For a 2d opinion, schedule a consult with an Orange/Westchester Divorce attorney. - David Bliven, Westchester Divorce Attorney.
