Why did you hire your divorce attorney?
An impressive legal background? Great reviews? A family referral?
Whatever the reason, if you are not happy with your divorce lawyer, and
they’re not doing a great job for you, it’s time to let them go!
Every profession has wonderfully talented people. There will also be some
professionals who are lazy, not assertive, or simply just not good at
what they do. That’s just not good enough for you!
When it comes to your divorce, you need the best, most talented, highly
motivated attorney and more important, an attorney who will be the right
fit for you and your case.
If you have already signed a contract and sadly hired a dud, it’s
time to “break up” with your lawyer.
As a dedicated and highly skilled divorce lawyer and mediator, I can tell
you that having accomplished, highly motivated representation when divorcing
is the key to getting the best possible settlement for you and your family.
When it comes to your future, and that of your family, there is no room
Here are 4 reasons to get rid of your divorce attorney:
1. Doesn’t return phone calls or respond to emails.
You are entitled to prompt communication with your attorney. Yes, they
are busy, and you are not their only client, but they should respond to
you in a timely fashion.You deserve to be heard and to have your questions
answered, and to be advised on the progression of your case.
2. The attorney you hired is not equipped to handle your case.
Some cases become complex and if you are a high net worth client, you may
require a divorce attorney with a strong financial background. Depending
on the scope of your case, you may need a divorce attorney who is a highly
skilled negotiator or seasoned litigator. Not all attorneys are created
equal.If you feel your attorney lacks the expertise your case requires
you may not get the settlement you deserve!
3. Your attorney is a mess.
If your attorney never seems to be prepared or on top of what is going
on in your case, you’re in trouble. This can really be a problem,
and it can negatively affect the outcome of your case when he or she shows
up unprepared for court. If this happens to you, don’t walk, run!!
Your lawyer’s disorganization should never waste your time, money,
or jeopardize your case or your settlement.
4. You don’t agree with your lawyer’s advice.
Although you are probably not an attorney and should take your lawyer’s
advice, your attorney still needs to listen to your wishes. If you feel
your attorney is pressuring you to accept a settlement that is not comfortable
to you, you may have a problem. After all, it is your life, and also your
decision. If your attorney can’t adequately explain the reason for
his/her advice, and the settlement offer is not in alignment with what
you feel is fair; you may want to consider at the very least a consultation
with another divorce attorney. Get a second opinion!
