Divorce Lawyers for Men

From the Wall Street Journal:

Divorce lawyers seeking an edge in a crowded legal marketplace have found a niche they say pays off in good times and bad: appealing to men who fear getting a bad deal.

With sports magazines in the waiting room and radio and TV spots that promise to put men first, "divorce for men" law firms position themselves as the best defense a soon-to-be-ex-husband could have in the struggle to keep his kids, his house and his money.

They say their expertise lends firepower in situations where other lawyers might cave, and they coach men on how to avoid certain snares. For instance, if you want to stay in your house, steer clear of confrontations—especially in front of witnesses—that could provide fodder for a restraining order.

That's a great angle, but it is also a lie. These firms who advertise 'for men' will represent a woman just the same as they will represent a man. Additionally, there no type of 'special training' these 'for men' firms have that makes them more qualified to represent men than the other 'run of the mill' divorce firms.

Thanks for the post, and I'm helping my friend look for a divorce lawyer in newport beach, ca. And neither of us are having any luck, so if anyone knows of any then that would be great.

So are there different ( divorce lawyers for men and women? I didn't actually know that there was a difference when I was looking in Surrey, BC. But I guess I should have been looking for gender specific.

It's really hard to face something like divorce alone. Getting a good divorce lawyer is one of the best things you can do for yourself. What else do you think we should consider when getting a lawyer and handling the expenses in a divorce?

I am trying to get joint custody of my children. Everyone is on my side but because she is their mother she seems to be ahead in the legality side. I wonder if there is a good divorce lawyer in Oakville?

Why would a man need a different type of lawyer than a woman? In Tucson AZ, divorce lawyers aren't gender specific. They can help anyone and everyone.

Getting a divorce is probably the most difficult thing ever!! I've seen how difficult it is to families and either way, both sides want a fair game and separation of assets. Getting a good divorce attorney is the most helpful thing you can do.

Thanks for this I've been trying to help a friend find a Utah divorce attorney. It's been a really tough time for her.

I didn't know that they were dividing them that way. Do law firms just tend to help more of one gender than another? How can you tell who is a divorce lawyer for men? I have been looking for a divorce attorney in West Plains, MO, maybe this is what I need.

Their are a lot of valid points given in the comments. I agree that it is a great angle to try to get a specific type of client. I wonder how they deal with women clients that are also going through divorce.
