Francis King, the founder of Nashville's Law Offices of Francis King, pinpointed a number of qualities that a person should look for in selecting a divorce attorney.
While their experience should be questioned, King said that having good communication skills is also critically important .
"Finding the right representation is key as your lawyer will oversee the complexities and details of your case. Divorces tend to impact all aspects of life, so choosing the right attorney is essential ," King commented.
"You want someone who has resolved cases that are like yours. If, for example, you or your partner have a significant net worth, then you should find out if your attorney has successfully managed similar cases."
King added: "A lawyer's ability to communicate effectively, easily and clearly is necessary to effective representation . You will know what's happening every step of the process, and your expectations will be set accordingly. One with excellent communication skills will also help negotiate a resolution and keep costs down in the long run."
A good lawyer tends to have a solid support team, one that ensures the administrative side of a divorce flows smoothly.
Asked to elaborate, King asserted: "Make sure to ask how long it takes them to respond to questions and who else in the office can help them when the attorney is tied up. A competent divorce attorney will ensure you receive timely responses and dedicate time to your case.”
"Equally important is to have a divorce lawyer who not only listens but cares as well. If you don't feel heard by your attorney or their staff, interview other attorneys until you feel you have found the person who understands your situation and will work well with you.”
"And don't hire an attorney who tells you what you want to hear or promises you results that may not be realistic. The reality of divorce is not always pretty, but it's better to have a realistic understanding of your situation than to waste your time and money chasing unrealistic expectations."
King added that composure is another essential quality a divorce attorney must have. "When something unexpected happens, you'll want a lawyer who works well under pressure and can continue to keep your best interests in mind, and focus and act professionally."
King concluded: "Dissolving a marriage is one of the most difficult experiences in a person's life. No two divorce cases are exactly alike, just as no two divorce attorneys are the same.”
“So don't be afraid to spend time seeking out the best fit for your case. And don't be afraid to ask questions as, ultimately, it is your life that needs to move on after divorce."
