Blackwood, N.J. — New Jersey family law attorney Lynda L. Hinkle Esq. (www.lyndahinkle.com) lays out the importance of hiring a good lawyer in her new book, Breaking Up: Finding and Working with a New Jersey Divorce Attorney. Hinkle encourages those considering divorce to do it “the right way” by imagining a conversation with their future selves. The calmer, more level-headed versions of themselves would advise that they stay strong, learn the process and work with an attorney who is right for them. She explains that often the first squabble between couples breaking up is who gets the widescreen television.
Hinkle’s book starts from the beginning of the process, covering the best methods and resources for finding a great lawyer. With a mix of emotional advice and fact-based information, she guides readers from the perspective of a seasoned legal veteran as well as her own personal experience. Chapter subjects include a breakdown of fees and payments, suggestions for saving money, and a step-by-step guide to the divorce process in New Jersey.
“Throughout my career in family law, I have dealt with hundreds of divorce cases,” said Hinkle. “I’ve seen people struggling through the hardest time in their life, usually alone, which has driven me to compile as much advice as I can from my experiences. If I can help make the process easier, clearer, simpler or better for just one person, I’ve done my job.”
