Default Choosing a child custody lawyer

Would it make any difference if a male or female lawyer represents a father for child custody? Having both lawyers have solid and similar background, would a female lawyer be advantage to the father or not?

I can't see what difference gender would make.

I'd look for someone who was confident, easy to talk to and had a good reputation.

I don't think the gender of a lawyer makes any difference, but as for their past experience in helping dads and their success rate.

My advice is to hire a lawyer who has represented fathers and won their custody cases. Don't hire a lawyer who has only represented mothers. Ask for proof of the cases they have won, now 99% of the lawyers out there may ask you to leave their office after you ask for proof however if they have not won a case, you will not have any advantage only a larger lawyer bill. Just keep interviewing lawyers til you find one that meets your criteria. The gender of the lawyer is irrevelant.
