Family Law Attorney Jobs
There are many family law attorney jobs across the country. A family law attorney defends their clients in cases such as divorce, child custody and neglect and abuse cases.

Other family related matters may include juvenile adjudication issues, adoption, surrogate situations, paternity testing and civil unions.

Family attorneys are very busy. As society changes and alternative family descriptions change from state to state to include domestic partnership and civil unions, a wide variety of legal issues may need to be dealt with.

A family lawyer has to complete the same educational requirements of lawyers in other fields. For example, he or she will have to graduate from college with a BA or its equivalent, followed by a JD (juris doctorate) from an accredited three year law school. At that point, a law school graduate will have to pass his or herstate's bar exam.

A successful family law attorney needs to be cognizant of this client's emotional state. For example, if a client is filing for divorce, he or she will often be in an emotionally distressed state facing the finality of their marriage, insecurities about finances or their financial future, etc. At the same time, there can be other issues that an attorney will have to explore, including child custody arguments and child support. A family attorney may also be asked to help in other issues such as creating trusts and writing wills.

An attorney will also have to be able to transition from one case to another as there is such a high demand for family law attorneys which increases their caseload. Consequently, an attorney will have to be highly organized and focused on his or her work.

A family law attorney often works in a practice that focuses on family law, or in a law office that offers family law as one of their services. A recent law school graduate very rarely enters this field as a solo practitioner.

The pay range for an attorney in this field is wide ranging, depending on their skills, success in the courtroom, location and practice that they work for.

A family law attorney job is a growing niche and has openings across the country for qualified lawyers.
