Ask for Referrals
The first step in finding the right divorce attorney for your case is to ask friends, family, coworkers, and other trusted individuals for referrals. Most high-quality divorce attorneys receive referrals for business, and if you know someone that has had a good experience with a divorce lawyer the chances are higher that you will, as well, since a client is not likely to refer a lawyer that did a poor job on their case.
Do Your Own Research
The next step in the process is to do your own research online to increase the list of potential attorneys for your divorce case. Research divorce lawyers in your area, and check the reviews of their work online. Look at the firm’s website as well as third party websites where clients can post honest reviews of the attorney’s work. Add any potential matches to the overall list.
Narrow the List
Once a comprehensive list of potential lawyers is created, the next step is to narrow the list. Remove any attorneys who do not meet your specifications, like those who are located too far away or who do not focus specifically on Florida divorce and family law. Also, pay attention to special accreditations such as Board Certification by the Florida Bar. After the list is narrowed to the top candidates, it is time to move to the final step of the process.
The last step in the process to find the right divorce lawyer for your case is to schedule interviews with the top candidates from the list. Be sure to go into each interview with a list of questions and be prepared to talk about the details of your case. Some common questions to ask include the following:
- How long have you practiced divorce law?
- How long does the average divorce case take?
- How often do you go to trial, and what is your record?
- What is your fee structure?
- Will you be handling my case or will an associate at the firm?
- What percentage of your practice is dedicated to divorce?
- How can I contact you, and how often do you communicate with clients?
Once you have concluded the interviews, you will be able to decide which divorce lawyer is best for your case. It is important to not only select an attorney who is qualified, but also has the vision and strategy approach which fits your overall goals for your case.
