Local Roots and a Personal Story
Amar S. Weisman was born in Towson and attended The Boys' Latin School of Maryland, Georgetown University and the University of Baltimore Peter Angelos School of Law. Having gone through his own divorce in 2013, Amar S. Weisman learned from being a client:
- Nothing is routine, guaranteed or easy.
- Every court hearing, document, phone call matters.
- Clients depend on attorneys to protect not only their financial future but also their integrity.
Your family law case will probably go better if you accept certain realities. If you want an attorney to tell you what you want to hear, because you angry, probably for valid reasons, then you need to know that I consider life too short to play games with clients. These are basic truths as understood by me:
- There are no guarantees. No matter how you, as a client, craft the question, the truth is that family law cases have a wide variety of possible outcomes. When you hire an attorney, you are not paying for a result. There might be likely outcomes, but there are no guaranteed outcomes.
- Evidence matters, including pointing out how the opposing party has wronged you, or even wronged your child. However, character assassination is usually an awful strategy. Very few people win when they go to court manifesting anger. If you imagine the process ending with you getting everything you want, because a judge found that the other party is bad, evil, or 100% at fault, that is probably not going to happen. If you want a winning strategy, build yourself up instead of tearing the other side down.
- Unless you live out of state, the best way to communicate with your attorney is meeting face-to-face. In my experience, clients who meet with me regularly face to face are much happier and the ones with recurring standing appointments have the best outcomes. If you think cell phones, text messages and long emails are the way to build an attorney-client relationship, I disagree.
- Meeting regularly is the most effective, least repetitive, and most interactive way to understand and be understood. If you care about your case, then you should meet with your lawyer, eye-to-eye, as frequently as the complexity of your case requires.
