Choosing the right divorce and family law attorney is an important personal decision that you should base on various factors and appropriate due diligence. First, you need to retain counsel with an excellent reputation among the Judges in the Probate and Family Courts, the other attorneys who frequently appear before such Judges, and other members of the Bar in general. You can determine a particular attorney’s and his or her firm’s reputation by looking at a number of resources, including Martindale-Hubbell, Avvo, The Best Lawyers in America, and Super Lawyers.
Once you have determined that you are interested in meeting with a reputable attorney with the qualifications necessary to successfully handle your case, you then need to determine whether there is an interpersonal fit between you and your potential lawyer. You will likely determine this during your initial consultation, where you will also learn about the divorce process and how a divorce may impact your parental rights, finances and your future more generally. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions about the divorce process.
