The best divorce attorney is the one who best fits you and your divorce issues. Don’t think this would be your friend’s divorce attorney. Nor the attorney with the biggest caseload. Nor the biggest law firm. The optimal attorney for you will be the one who has experience with your issues, communicates well and shares your priorities.
No one has exactly your divorce. It only takes one small condition to make your situation significantly different that of someone else’s divorce. You need to find the attorney with experience in your particular issues. If you own rental real estate, you need an attorney with experience in negotiating effective settlements involving rental units. If you are not sure how to proceed with your case, you need an attorney who can offer you choices – one who is great in the courtroom, an effective negotiator and is trained in collaborative law.
Communicating well means communicating easily with you. Are you comfortable with emails? Would you like an attorney who prefers phone calls? What are your needs for speedy replies from your attorney? I had a client who resorted to sending her local attorney a certified letter just to get his attention.
Know what is important to you. Do you want to save money? Then I recommend you seek an attorney whose style includes welcoming your do-it-yourself assistance. Do you want to have a cordial co-parenting relationship with your ex? Then I recommend you seek an attorney with collaborative law training. What are your priorities?
