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 attorney!
As a seasoned divorce attorney/mediator for over 35 years, I can tell you
when it comes to your divorce, you need the best, most talented, highly
motivated attorney and more importantly, 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.
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
If you are experiencing any of the below behaviors from your divorce attorney,
it may be time to find new representation!
1. Poor Communication Issues
Communication is key in any attorney-client relationship, and it's
essential that you feel comfortable discussing sensitive issues with your
divorce attorney. If you find that your attorney is unresponsive to your
calls or emails, doesn't listen to your concerns, or doesn't explain
legal terms and concepts clearly, it may be time to find a new attorney.
2. Lack of Experience
Divorce law can be complicated, and it's important to work with an
attorney who has experience handling cases similar to yours. If your attorney
doesn't have the expertise you need, you may want to consider finding
someone who does. An attorney specializing in divorce and family law is
what you need!
3. Conflicts of Interest
If your attorney has a conflict of interest, it can compromise their ability
to represent you effectively. For example, if your attorney is also representing
your spouse or has a personal relationship with your spouse, it may be
difficult for them to remain impartial and advocate for your best interests.
4. High Fees
Divorce attorneys can be expensive, and if you're not comfortable with
the fees your attorney is charging, it may be time to find a new one.
It's important to be clear about fees upfront and to understand how
your attorney charges for their services.
5. Slow Progress
Divorce can be a lengthy process, but if you feel that your attorney is
dragging their feet or not making progress on your case, it may be time
to find a new attorney who can move your case forward more efficiently.
6. Poor Strategy
If you feel that your attorney's strategy for your case is not effective
or is not in line with your goals, it may be time to find a new attorney
who can develop a better strategy for your case.
7. Lack of Trust
Trust is an essential component of any attorney-client relationship, and
if you don't feel that you can trust your attorney, it may be time
to find a new one. You need to be able to rely on your attorney to represent
your best interests and provide you with honest advice.
8. Personal Issues
If you have personal issues with your attorney that make it difficult to
work with them, it may be time to find a new attorney. For example, if
you don't feel comfortable with your attorney's personality or
communication style, it may be best to find someone who is a better fit for you.
