Our weekly, very informative segment with Attorney Shon Cook continues. It's an amazing opportunity we have with a highly qualified professional who's willing to join us to help explain in plain English some of the intricacies of her line of work which is highly specialized to say the very least. We're not only thankful for her sponsorship of our work, but her commitment to helping our viewers understand what she does and why.
This week, it's really informative as it's all about the "first step". You are at a point in life where you need to find some legal help and you're just not sure what comes first. Well, of course it's the contact to the proper attorney but from there, what do you need to bring with you when it comes to making sure that 1) your concerns are met 2) the time you spend is wise and 3) what you have is relevant to what can be determined in court. With Shon's specialty, Family Law, it's rather difficult to differentiate at times. If we're talking about divorce or child custody, to think that some human emotion isn't going to filter in is absurd, of course it is. Shon explains that Family Lawyers are generally quite sympathetic to situations and do what they can to be understanding, and they have to also keep in mind that you're paying them to help, so they need to keep to the facts and keep things moving.
Week in an week out too, Shon gives a little peek behind the curtain for her profession too. She shares some thoughts on previous clients that have made an impact on her, some cases from time to time that have stood out and more. She humanizes the legal world and that's what keeps people coming back week after week.
So, without further adieu...let's learn a little more about a first visit with an attorney from Shon Cook.
Pretty simple and to the point. Know what you have and be ready to get to work. You'll find compassion and caring along the way with Shon for sure, but when it comes to the final paper work and the court, it's about what's best and fair to all involved.
