You want to have the best family law attorney for your situation. Finding the best family law attorney for your case means more than finding the most aggressive attorney in town or finding the least expensive attorney. People often search for the best family law attorney or the top divorce lawyer and while it’s important to find a great attorney to help you, the best attorney for one person may not be the best attorney for someone else. Some people prefer to work with a woman divorce lawyer either based on their own preference or how they think the court will feel about the case. Look for a lawyer that is the best fit for you and your case. Find someone that is willing to listen to you and what you feel is important.

Raleigh Divorce Lawyer Reviews
"I am truly impressed with the outstanding results!" There was an emergency situation where my child could have been taken out of the country without my consent and perhaps would take many years without seeing her again; I am truly impressed with the outstanding results Allie Moore was able to accomplish, she even worked over the weekend to have my little one back home safely; Highly recommend her.
"Allie was a Godsend!" Allie was a Godsend and really helped me with my situation. Her and the firm were very diligent and helped speed the early stages of the process along due to a rocky situation. Throughout my experience working with Allie she was always responsive and available any time I had a question or wanted to check on the state of affairs. Hopefully I won't have to recommend McIlveen to my friends or family, but if those unfortunate circumstances arise then there's only one name I would trust. Thank you again for all your help!
