Q&A: criminal defense lawyer giving legal advice for custody matters?

Question by Deserae P: criminal defense lawyer giving legal advice for custody matters?
My ex & I will be going to court for custody issues. I recently found out his “attorney” is his aunt, a pre-law graduate specializing 100% in Criminal Defense. I know no one can KNOW how much she knows about family law, but in general do criminal defense attorneys really know enough? I’ve heard for custody matters it’s fairly imperative to have an attorney specializing in Family Law. Just wanting to know what I’m up against.

Best answer:

Answer by shizzle
there is no pre-law major (she most likely majored in history, politics, english, or liberal arts)…therefore, at this stage, she doesn’t know jack about much at all in the legal arena…besides which, she can’t legally represent him in court without a license to practice law in your state.
