We hear plenty in our offices.
- A women called us crying because every time she calls her divorce lawyer it’s a $1,000 bill. She is on disability and can’t afford to keep paying her attorney.
- Another man told how his lawyer doesn’t listen at all to what he says and is fighting beyond what is in the best interest of his kids and his own needs.
- Others tell us of the crazy amounts they have paid and have yet to see any progress being made.
Sound familiar? Do you feel like your divorce lawyer is more concerned with making money then fighting for your best interests? Then in may be time to get a new lawyer.
Remember, you have the right to change your lawyer at any time. You may have a better idea now of the type of lawyer you want. Maybe one less aggressive or more aggressive, more personable, or one that charges less.
Whatever your needs are, there are several resources that can help. A lawyer that you already have a trusted relationship may be able to give you a referral. Legal websites such as Nolo, Avvo and Martindale offer information on lawyers in your area. Most importantly, set up a consultation with any lawyer you are considering and come prepared with all your questions. Make sure to discuss their fee schedule as well.
