If your going to court you need to know the solicitor has experience of this, many do not, in fact you need an advocate solicitor to represent you in court.

So the obvious question is how many people has the solicitor represented through court, how long have they practiced family law.

Don`t make the mistake of choosing a local solicitor just because they are local, solicitors travel, its part of the job.

Recommendation is the best way to decide, its the same with any work you are planning.

Maybe give the wiki line a call if your a bit unsure.
