Compassionate Family Law Attorney Providing Representation to Clients in Poughkeepsie and Throughout the Hudson Valley Area

Finding the right Poughkeepsie family lawyer

At the Law Office of Christopher S. Coleman, PLLC, we handle family law disputes involving child custody, visitation, child support, family offenses and other such matters. We realize that family law issues require the utmost sensitivity and discretion, as well as compassionate and forceful representation.

Since family law disputes can be complicated, you must hire the right attorney to represent you. Some attributes you should look for when choosing a family law attorney:

  • Experience: When facing a family law dispute, you have a lot to lose. You cannot afford to hire an attorney who has little or no experience in this area of the law. The lawyer you hire must be familiar with family law cases.
  • Knowledge: Look for family attorneys who are well-educated and thoroughly understand family law. New York laws and regulations are constantly changing, so you need an attorney with up-to-date knowledge to stand by your side.
  • Tenacity: You must retain a lawyer who is prepared to fight aggressively for you.
  • Trust: Lastly, you must feel comfortable discussing all aspects of your case with your attorney, and have confidence in his or her ability to represent you.
