An article by Robert Z. Dobrish, Custody Evaluations: The Propriety of Preparation, appeared in a recent piece from the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) Journal. The piece, Preparing Clients for Custody Evaluations: A Call for Critical Examination, written by Johnathan W. Gould and James J. Nolletti, draws from Dobrish’ extensive research on the subject of child custody evaluations and the value of zealous advoacy.
The Journal of American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers is available in print, and Dobrish’s article can be viewed here.
In his article, Dobrish identifies the once-common legal concept of zealous advocacy. From its inception, zealous advocacy served an integral role in the adversarial process. In recent years, the idea of zealous legal representation has become less popular, even to the point of disfavor.
What does this mean for clients? When the legal community no longer holds advocates to this high standard of representation, clients suffer the consequences. At Dobrish Michaels Gross LLP, we provide passionate legal advocacy for clients as they face challenges related to child custody, divorce, and family law.
