Ask Prospective Attorneys for Consultations & Interviews

Most attorneys offer free or reduced-fee consultations for a reason. These meetings are an opportunity for you to understand how an attorney would handle your case if given the opportunity and are invaluable if you want to find the perfect lawyer for your case.

Before you go into a consultation, think about the details of your case. Do you want to hand it amicably and attempt to use an out-of-court solution like mediation to resolve your issues, or battle it out in court using litigation? What kind of results do you want to achieve? Once you know what you want out of your divorce, ask your attorney how confident they are in their ability to achieve those results for you.

Find an Attorney You Actually Like

If possible, you should try and find an attorney and law office that you genuinely enjoy interacting with. On a personal level, being able to communicate honestly with your lawyer and get a compassionate response is important. Professionally, you'll work better as a team in and out of court if you enjoy one another's company.

Ask Your Lawyer How Experienced They Are with Cases like Yours

Having legal counsel you can trust is vital. Try and gauge how much experience a prospective lawyer has handling cases like yours before deciding to hire them. If they're relatively inexperienced, that doesn't mean they can't still get you great results, but try and gauge how confident they seem in their capability to handle the specifics of your case.

Find Other Reviews

Today, online reviews abound. While it's important to take the information you find online with a grain of salt, it can be a useful tool to help you research attorneys and find one that matches your needs.
