How to pick a divorce attorney

1. Referral from a friend or colleague.

Getting a referral from a friend or acquaintance is probably the best way to find a divorce attorney. If a person has used a particular attorney, and has had a positive experience, that will give you confidence that you will have a good experience with that attorney as well.

2. Experience and Board Certification.

One very important thing to find out about an attorney that you are thinking about hiring is how much experience does this attorney have in the area of divorce? An experienced divorce attorney will be able to guide you through the divorce process better than one that does not have much experience with divorce cases. One way to ensure that the attorney has experience, is to choose an Attorney that is Board Certified in the area of Family Law. If the attorney is Board Certified, that means that he/she is dedicated to having the skill set to help you through your divorce.

3. Personality.

One very important question to answer when choosing a divorce lawyer is: Do I like this lawyer? You are about to embark on one of the most difficult and heart breaking journeys in your life. There are times where you'll become frustrated with the process. It is important for you to choose an attorney who you trust and with whom you feel comfortable.

4. Realistic prediction of the outcome of your case.

Be very suspicious of an attorney that tells you that she can get you whatever you want. You need an attorney that is going to tell you the truth about the possible outcomes. It is important that you find an attorney who will be honest with you about likely outcomes for your case.
