Who is the Best Child Custody Lawyer for Fathers?

There are lots of child custody attorneys in Utah. Some try to specialize in helping only men, and they spend lots of money advertising specifically to men.

We all know, however, that advertising doesn’t mean you’re actually good at what you advertise. So, the question becomes: how you do you find a good Utah child custody attorney for men?

If I were hiring an attorney and answering this question for myself, here are a few of the things I would consider.

First: Good child custody lawyers have the ability to help both men and women equally. Being a skilled attorney is about having the capacity to consider a case from all sides and fashioning the best arguments with the facts at hand. If an attorney is only able to do that effectively for one gender, then that attorney is not terribly skilled. Seeing things from only one side makes attorneys shortsighted and less effective in court. So, the best child custody attorney for men is the one who can do a good job for everyone.

Second: Advertising costs money, and that money is recouped in fees to clients. When attorneys spend lots of money advertising to one particular segment of the population (in this case, men), then their fees will probably be higher. They may recoup the costs in the hourly fees their attorneys charge, or maybe in increased fees charged for their paralegals. Some recoup it by nickel-and-diming their clients, e.g., charging for photocopies and the like.

Third: Only serving one gender means an attorney is seen a certain way by the Court. When attorneys serve only men, they tend to have a certain reputation with commissioners and judges. While commissioners and judges might respect them for their legal knowledge, these attorneys are often not considered overly persuasive because they make the same arguments for the same subset of the population day after day. After a while, that repetition can get old and stale.

In the end, the best Utah child custody attorney is the one who can effectively serve every client. The law is the law, and men and women should be treated equally under it. Likewise, attorneys should serve male and female clients equally well.

Go find the best attorney you can, whom you get along with, and whom you feel will serve you with dignity, knowledge, and respect. That is the recipe for success.

Overall from start to finish the best experience to have dealing with a time that is difficult.Andrew Christensen is very professional and out going to make this situation the best it could be and worked hard to make sure the divorce was fair for me.Over all, this firm really cares and treats you as a family or friend and just not a client, down to Marco Brown taking time to see how I was doing and offer to help in any way possible during my divorce while I was there for my first initial meeting.I would highly recommend anyone that has to go through a divorce to really reach out to the Brown Family Law firm and see for your self the experience I was able to receive from a top notch law firm.
Response from the owner: Devin, thank you for the kind words. Andrew appreciated the opportunity to help you with your situation.
Sophie was very helpful and explains the process and fees. Thank you!
Response from the owner: Corey, thank you for the kind words. Glad we could help.
My attorney Amy Pomeroy and assistant Melanie and Dani are awesome! It’s an easy case but due to the opposite party was failed to respond, the process went much longer than we expect. During the process Amy gets the necessary job done as quick as she can. The assistants made the most documentation jobs done in a reasonable time. I will get phone call or message to communicate for the status, what’s the next step, what should I expect. In the end, it’s a huge win. So I definitely recommend Brown Family Law. They are professional and handle the case very well.
Response from the owner: Yue, thank you for the kind words. Glad Amy was able to help you so well.
Dani always kept me updated and has great communication skills.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Sofia.
Dani was extremely helpful and always responsive.

My experience with Brown Family Law is a positive one. I highly recommend them. This firm has very good communication with their clients. Attorney Paul Waldron represents me and I’m very happy with the experience. My questions and concerns are always answered quickly and respectfully. I’m grateful to have Mr. Waldron and Brown Family Law in my corner during this difficult time for my family.
Response from the owner: Jodie, glad we were able to communicate with you so effectively and quickly. Thank you for your kind words.
I recently used Clay in a divorce case and could not have been happier. He was efficient, knowledgeable, and made me feel like I was his only client. The process was easy and he was always there to reassure me or help me with decisions. I would highly recommend Brown Family Law.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Mendi.
Dani excelled as a paralegal, providing crucial support with exceptional skills!
Response from the owner: Glad Dani did such a good job for you.
Thank you So much
Response from the owner: You're welcome. Thank you for choosing us to help you.
I highly recommend Nathaniel and his team. They listened to me, navigated me, educated me, and always called when they said they would. Going through a divorce was very hard but they helped me get through it and showed compassion the whole time.
Response from the owner: Amy, thank you for your recommendation, and glad we could help you through your divorce.
