Effective vs. Aggressive Lawyering: A Conversation with NLG Family Law Attorney Geneviève Torres

We’re challenging stereotypes and taking on a question you might just be asking if you’re on the hunt for representation: Do you need an asshole lawyer? Is that different than an aggressive attorney? Or assertive? Pete’s joined by Geneviève Torres, a family law attorney at NLG Family Law, to help break this down for you.

The real key is that you get an effective attorney. Sometimes, the challenge comes in the client wanting the attorney to actually be more aggressive. Still, there’s a line between that and being an asshole. Sometimes, the asshole attorney is representing the other side. Pete and Geneviève talk through various scenarios and help you understand what best to look for in your own attorney.
