Re: Looking For a Lawyer -Family Matter

I personally know one one the lake Zurich, recently he successfully finished one divorce but he is only german speaking and he is more financial consultant than lawyer. In the divorce he arranged there were no conflicts, both sides wanted to do it peacefully which is might be not your case. Also my husband knows one good lawyer, I guess in the Zurich area, but this I am afraid would be expensive. I can ask
At the end wish you good luck and patience because the process is long and not easy.

Then I will ask tonight and send you a personal message. I guess I should not give any names in public messages otherwise it will be advertising
Will German speaking lawyer be OK, or you really need English speaking one?

Re: Looking For a Lawyer -Family Matter

Either German speaking or English speaking, main requirment is that they are good. I.e. If they speak only German but have a good reputation then i can get through with my german...

And Thanks again!
