How to get the Best Legal Advice

Choosing the best divorce lawyer to use is a highly individual process.  The top rated divorce attorney in your city may not be right for you.  You probably didn't pick your spouce by marrying the first person who asked you out.  You should interview at least three lawyers before you make your final choice just as you should get three quotes from contractors before you select one to remodel your kitchen. 

You will be spending much time with your divorce attorney so you want to make sure he (or she) is someone you are comfortable with and trust.

Start out by making a list of what you think is important to you. Turn each item into questions. Take that list or questions with you when you interview prospective divorce lawyers.  Go down the list and ask each question and write down the answer.  If you feel rushed by the lawyer, then take that as a warning sign they are more interested in making money than helping you. A good lawyer will put you first knowing the money will take care of itself, often from referrals from satisfied clients.

The best way to find a good divorce lawyer is to ask friends who have used one in the past and were satisfied with the experience.

Things to ask or consider
  • How many divorce cases has he (or she) handled?
  • Can he (or she) offer past clients as references
  • What is the status of the lawyer with his or her State Bar?
    In California, go to http://members.calbar.ca.gov/search/member.aspx to find out if they are legally allowed to practice and if there are any open complaints or diciplinary actions on his record.
  • How do they charge?
  • How long will it take from start to finish?
  • What does he (or she) expect for a "reasonable" settlement?
