    5 star review  I was proud to be represented by Brookshire Law Office where integrity and dedication is held in high regard. Not easily distracted from “noise”, professionalism is top level and always in play while still leaving room for compassion. A firm that recognizes the importance of communication and not only welcomes it, but is effective at it. I will be returning for any legal needs in the future with complete confidence and would recommend the firm without pause. A special thank you to both Shawn and Jeffrey.

How To Choose a Lawyer in Halifax

What’s the first step to picking a lawyer for me?

The first step to choosing the right lawyer is to know what legal area you’re looking for. If you need a divorce, you’ll need a family lawyer. Knowing what type of lawyer you need will help you narrow down the law firms that provide that legal service.

I know what type of lawyer I need, how do I know which one to choose?

There are many law firms to choose from. We recommend looking at Google reviews on the law firms that you find, and read up on the bios of each lawyer. By getting to know the lawyers that you’ll be working with, you’ll find the one that best fits you.
