When you are looking for a divorce lawyer to help you, we advise to remember your A.B.C.’s!
A is for availability, as having an attorney who is responsive and available to help you through this trying time is extremely important. Having a “great” attorney is only nice if you can actually communicate with them.
B is for Believeability and that goes both ways. Your attorney needs to be someone who you feel comfortable being completely honest with and that you feel gives the same honesty back to you. There are few things that can cause a trial to go worse than having lied to your attorney, only to have the other party expose you as a liar at trial.
Finally, C is for Control. You are seeking out an attorney so that they can guide you through the process, so you want to make sure that your attorney is capable of controlling the situation, dealing with unexpected issues, and obtaining an optimal result for you.
