Hiring A Divorce Lawyer

Hiring a Divorce Lawyer
Hiring a trustworthy divorce lawyer is an important decision, whether you work with them from the beginning to end of your divorce or on a limited basis. Your lawyer can affect the cost, course, and outcome of your divorce. To find the right lawyer to help with your divorce, ask these questions when you meet:
  • How long have you been practicing family law and how many cases have you handled?
  • If I retain you, will you or someone else within your firm handle my case?
  • If my spouse and I can’t agree on an issue in our divorce, how would you to help us break our stalemate? Would you suggest we try mediation?
  • Do you practice collaborative divorce law?
  • Have you ever had a case like mine? How did you handle it?
  • What do you see as the strengths and weaknesses of my family law case?
  • Knowing what you know about my situation, how would you proceed if I were to retain you?
  • If I call you, how quickly can I expect to have my calls returned?
  • What is your hourly rate and can you give me an estimate of how much my matter will cost?
  • Will I have to pay money into your trust account? If so, how much will I have to pay?
  • What sort of expenses should I expect to pay, and how much do you estimate they will be? Are there things I can do to minimize them?
  • Will you provide me with an estimate of my expenses and an explanation of what those expenses may include?
