How To Find The Best Divorce Lawyer For You

How do you find the best divorce lawyer for you? Notice I didn't ask how do you find the best divorce lawyer. Just like no two people are exactly alike, no two divorce cases or divorce clients are exactly alike. Finding the right divorce lawyer for you is much like choosing which car to buy or which home to purchase -one size does not fit all. The relationship between an attorney and a client is both a business relationship as well as a personal one. Most divorce attorneys can competently handle most typical divorce cases, but be sure to understand their fee structure and their experience in handling cases similar to yours. Determine whether the lawyer is a divorce attorney or an attorney who occasionally handles divorce cases. There is a huge difference between the two. Familiarity with divorce law and divorce judges can make a world of difference. Make sure you share a common approach to handling your case. This is where a breakdown in the relationship can often occur. A client may wish to take an aggressive approach, but the attorney may be predisposed to having a softer touch or wish to attempt a collaborative method to dealing with the case. Make sure during your initial consultation that you both share a common game plan for the strategy of the case.
