Your Attorney's Loyalty

A Delaware attorney has an obligation of loyalty to the client. Especially in domestic cases this is very important for the client to remember.

Some clients believe that the lawyer's friendship or contacts with the attorney on the other side of the case is a sign of disloyalty or inability to represent aggressively the client's position. This is not so. It is the sworn duty of the attorney to represent fully, zealously and competently the lawful needs and legitimate goals of the client.

A good attorney can have no divided loyalty. Joe will not settle your case without your permission. When you hire Wahl Family Law to represent you, your case demands undivided loyalty.
