Advice when hiring a divorce lawyer
Written by our divorce lawyers in Manassas
Many times, people researching divorce lawyers will simply type “divorce lawyers near me” in Google and start going down the list.
Unfortunately, while the Internet can be of some assistance in narrowing your choices, an online search does not give you all the information you will need to make a decision about hiring a divorce lawyer. Instead, you should interview a prospective lawyer and our divorce lawyers in Manassas suggest you ask some of these questions:
- What is your billing rate? Is there a billing rate for paralegals or secretaries?
- What is the amount of the initial deposit required for services?
- Are payment plans available?
- How many divorce cases have you handled?
- How many of your cases settle?
- How long have you been a practicing lawyer?
- Will other lawyers in your firm work on my case?
- What input do I have regarding strategy?
Another important point to hiring a divorce lawyer is that you should get a sense of whether you are comfortable speaking with the lawyer. A decision to hire a divorce lawyer is not a decision to be made lightly and you should make sure that communication with the lawyer is not an issue.
