The ultimate compliment in any industry is to have your services sought after by your peers. For nearly 50 years, Robert G “Hap” Fry Jr.’s services as a prolific and experienced Tulsa divorce lawyer have been sought out from other Tulsa divorce attorneys and lawyers in general. Simply put: he is regarded by many to be a “lawyer’s lawyer,” along with many other trial lawyers at Fry & Elder.
“Going through a divorce and child custody battle is not easy for any party involved,” Fry said. “But it is incredibly rewarding and satisfying to know that fellow attorneys have confidence in you to handle complex legal issues like divorce and child custody affairs. About as big a compliment as an attorney can have is to be considered a lawyer’s lawyer. I feel very honored that fellow attorneys have turned to me for insight and consultation on such personal and life-changing matters.”
The criteria for being a lawyer’s lawyer is not entirely extensive, but the benchmarks are important.
A Lawyer’s Lawyer has a No-Nonsense Approach
A lawyer’s lawyer has a straightforward approach when dealing with clients. They get to the point and assess what the options are – from best to worst – for each divorce and child custody scenario. From there, a good attorney will research and develop the best strategy moving forward for each client.
A Lawyer’s Lawyer has Good Judgement
The hallmark of any good attorney is to incorporate exceptional judgement in-trial and during pre-trial preparation. An established and acclaimed divorce attorney will be the first to say that good judgement is formed through experience and exposure to different legal situations and scenarios. A lawyer’s lawyer is always soaking up information and learning, which will allow the attorney to incorporate the best judgement possible in a timely matter for each client.
A Lawyer’s Lawyer has a Stellar Reputation
A good reputation is a by-product of doing exceptional work.
