How Do I Find The Best Divorce Attorney For Me?
November 2, 2022
Something my clients frequently share with me is how difficult it can be to select a divorce attorney. As a divorce attorney in Johnson County, Kansas, I know it can be challenging to find someone who can account for your individual and unique divorce needs whom you also trust to represent your needs. Here are some things to keep in mind when selecting a divorce attorney:
Listen To What the Divorce Attorney Has To Offer
Each attorney has their own style and specialty. At Hill Law Firm, I am pleased to offer my clients Collaborative Divorce, Collaborative Mediation and Mediation because I believe these are better methods to help resolve family law matters than traditional divorce. During my early career, I spent time litigating high-conflict family law cases and difficult child custody disputes and truly feel these more cooperative options are the most ideal for all parties involved.
Search For Divorce Lawyers Near You
It is always wise to find a divorce lawyer near you. The best divorce attorneys know the law in your area and how it pertains to your legal situation. For example, if you are in the Kansas City Metro area but on the Kansas side in Johnson County, you might search for a divorce lawyer in Overland Park to represent you because they know Kansas family law and are centrally located in the county.
Do Your Research
When searching for a divorce lawyer, you’ll want to do some research first. Make sure any claims that are made on their websites or on social media are true and can be backed up through peer or client referrals. I invite you to read my online reviews, Google Business Profile and peer ratings through Lexis Nexis Martindale-Hubble.
Ask For A Consultation
When choosing the right divorce lawyer, you can always ask for an initial consultation to make sure your working relationship with them will be a good fit. You don’t have to choose the first lawyer you consult with. Your priority is to make sure they understand your needs and can handle your case.
