How can I make sure I pick the right divorce lawyer?

Posted on January 30, 2019

First impressions don’t always pan out. This can be true both in marriage and in picking divorce lawyers.

It can be a bit intimidating, having to choose a lawyer to represent you in your divorce case. After all, making the wrong choice could result in being tied together with a “bulldog” lawyer who stretches hours to the max and costs a fortune. Or it could mean working with a disorganized lawyer or otherwise lacking lawyer.

Take note of the following steps in order to make sure that you choose the right lawyer to work with.

Making an agreement with a divorce lawyerMake use of your initial consultation

Many law firms such as Epstein & Associates will offer a free initial consultation. This is a valuable opportunity to come in and meet the legal team that you will be working with. Even in a short time, it can become clear if it is a good fit.

Meet with more than one lawyer, whether in the same firm or at different firms

Finding a lawyer to represent you is an important choice and shouldn’t be a matter of simply picking the first lawyer you see. Take some time to explore your options and talk to several different lawyers. It should quickly become apparent that lawyers are not all the same and that some will be better suited for working on your case.

You can change lawyers if necessary

Worried about getting locked in with a law firm that turns out to be a dud? Remember that you can terminate the services of your lawyer if it becomes clear that they aren’t doing the job that is required of them. Again, your financial future is at stake so you shouldn’t tolerate shoddy work.

Make sure to help your lawyer so they can help you

An important detail is that you can’t simply sit back and wait for your lawyer to do everything for you. Your legal representative will be counting on you to provide the necessary information so that they can do their job to the best of their ability. The last thing you want to do is to limit your lawyer’s options by withholding valuable information.
