Choosing A Divorce Lawyer
Erie County, New York, has no shortage of lawyers, and this is both an advantage and a drawback to individuals about to commence the process of divorce. After all, it is helpful to have so many options available, but the sheer number of options can be overwhelming. This leads many of our prospective clients to ask us questions about what’s important to know when choosing a divorce lawyer.
In choosing an attorney, the best thing to do is to sit down in person with the attorney you may want to hire. Calling an attorney on the phone and having a brief conversation is not going to provide the insight that you need to have. You need to know early on whether you will be comfortable working with that individual as you go through the most difficult aspects of the divorce process. Sit down with the attorney, make sure that the attorney is communicating with you, make it clear that your expectations must be the same, and ask the attorney about her or his experience. Most attorneys will not be intimidated if they are asked how long they have been in practice, what kind of work they have done, how they feel that a particular case should be developed, and how long a case may take. Sit down with the attorney, make sure that you two communicate, and decide whether the attorney is someone with whom you feel comfortable working for the long haul.
