I hate my divorce lawyer. How do I get a new lawyer?

If you feel, for any reason, that your divorce lawyer is not working in your best interests, then you have the right to change lawyers at any time.


The best way to find a new lawyer is to understand your needs and turn to trusted sources for recommendations. Are you looking for an aggressive lawyer? Do you anticipate a nasty battle? Or are there no kids and few assets?


Talk to an attorney you already trust and research online legal sites such as Nolo, Avvo and Martindale. Get some names and check out their websites. Do an online search and check that they are in good standing with the American Bar Association.


When you have some local names, call and set up a consultation. Come prepared with all your questions and make sure to discuss their fee schedule as well so there are no surprises.


Still have questions? Call our offices for answers to your specific case.
