Linda K. Wray - Attorney At Law
Twin Cities Legal Service, PLLC - Family & Collaborative Law

The dissolution of a marriage is one of the most difficult events in a person's life. The legal process of divorce ideally should not contribute to conflict between partners, but instead should enable partners to restructure their families with dignity, respect and integrity.

She assists clients with choosing a process consistent with their goals and values.  Once a process is chosen, Linda works extensively with each of her clients to identify his or her needs, priorities and goals concerning parenting issues, support and property division. She provides sophisticated, client-centered services, and is an experienced negotiator which enables her to maximize optimal client outcomes.  For those clients whose cases should be handled in the court system, Linda is a skilled and seasoned trial attorney.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
