Not All Divorce Lawyers are Equal
Finding a divorce lawyer can be daunting. While many divorce lawyers claim they are competent to handle your case, are they the most qualified person to protect you and your children during this challenging time? Mistakes in the choice of a divorce attorney can be devastating. Needless to say, much is at stake.
As a starting point, ask your friends or family for a personal reference. But even then, be cautious. Some divorce attorneys are up to the task of handling routine matters but not skilled enough to represent people in more complex proceedings involving financial or child custody issues.
How to find the best divorce lawyer for your divorce case
Consult appropriate lawyer referral services on the internet. For example, consult:
- Best Lawyers in America www.bestlawyers.com
- Best Lawyers www.bestlawyers.com
- Super Lawyers www.superlawyers.com
- Leading Lawyer Network www.leadinglawyers.com
These sites recognize divorce lawyers who have been acknowledged by other lawyers as possessing the skills to represent people in complex cases. Simply put, these resources reflect divorce lawyers who are considered the best of the best. To be considered a divorce Super lawyer or Leading Lawyer, the divorce attorney must be considered in the top 5% of all divorce lawyers practicing in a particular area of law.
A divorce lawyer cannot pay to be recognized in these directories; they are completely merit-based. Don’t be confused by sites that allow divorce attorneys to pay to advertise.
