How to Hire the Right Divorce Attorney

If you are looking to hire a lawyer for your case read this article from Kansas Family and Divorce Lawyer Blog, How to Hire the Right Divorce Attorney:

"Too many people don't know what to look for when they are considering which divorce lawyer to hire.' Most people who are interviewing family law attorneys are in a very stressful situation, typically one that they have not been in before.' Making an important decision during a particularly stressful time can be a recipe for disaster."
I think it does a great service for potential clients

Of the qualities listed in the original article, I want to emphasize this one:
  • Fit. It’s important that you and your divorce lawyer get along well. This doesn’t mean that you have to be good buddies with your divorce lawyer and want to invite them to dinner. However, you’ll be going through some of the most difficult experiences in your life with this person. You’ll be revealing some of the most intimate details of your personal and financial situation to this person. Your relationship with this person will last quite a long time. So, it’s important that you’re comfortable with your divorce lawyer.
I say that the attorney-client relationship is a partnership. I have the law and you have the facts and we must work together. If we cannot work together, then a good case can turn bad.
