Four aspects to consider when looking for a Divorce Lawyer

What to Do When You're a Beneficiary to a Disputed Will

Your divorce proceeding will have a significant impact on your future. So if you are looking for a divorce lawyer, there are various aspects you should consider before making your final decision. This article provides you with the list of things to look for when choosing a divorce lawyer.

01. Comfort Level

When choosing a divorce lawyer, your comfort level is the first thing to look for. If you don’t have a good feeling about a lawyer, then you might be better off choosing someone else. It’s important to think about your overall comfort level as a person and when you are around this lawyer. 

The lawyers at Bickell & Mackenzie strive to make you feel good about your chances of winning your case. They should be realistic about your situation and able to make you feel more comfortable about your decisions.

02. Rate Flexibility & Transparency

Not all divorce lawyers charge the same amount of money for their services. You should be able to get a good idea of the lawyer’s rates and what extras may be added to your final bill. It’s also important to know how you will be charged for their services, and you need to ask if there are any hidden costs. The divorce lawyer should be willing to give you an estimate of the likely costs of your case.

It’s easier to work with a lawyer with more flexible rates. Although they may have higher rates, lawyers who offer flexible rates will charge you less, if your case isn’t as long or complicated as originally expected. If a lawyer’s rates are fixed, you won’t be able to negotiate for a lower cost when your final bill comes. 

03. Communication

At Bickell & Mackenzie we recommend you find a lawyer who can communicate with you in a way that you can understand. For example, our lawyers can explain complex things to a client in simple terms.

We believe that communication is a vital part of a lawyer-client relationship. Finding a lawyer with good communication skills will help you choose the right lawyer for your case. The legal professionals at Bickell & Mackenzie will communicate with you directly, honestly, and in a way that you truly understand.

04. Focus & Strategy

Your family lawyer shouldn’t give you a generic plan for your case. You should be able to see that they have a good focus and strategy when they talk to you about your situation. The lawyer should be able to explain to you why they think they can help you.

The Bottomline

There are several things that you should consider when choosing a divorce lawyer. Remember to look for one who can communicate well, offers flexible rates, and focuses on your needs as a client. This will help you find a great divorce lawyer.
