What are the most important questions to ask when hiring a divorce attorney?

Choosing the right lawyer to guide you through your divorce is one of the most important divorce-related decisions you’ll make. Here are some questions that may help you determine which lawyer is right for your case:

  1. What would your strategy be for my case?
  2. What is your style (cooperative, aggressive, etc.)?
  3. What is your hourly rate and experience level?
  4. Is what I want reasonable under the law (and can you articulate to me why or why not)?
  5. What is your connection with the community, including knowledge of experts, judges, other family law attorneys (and does that provide any insight into my case/strategy)?
  6. Do you work independently or with a team of support and what does that looks like (other attorneys, experts, support staff, etc.)?
  7. Have you litigated cases with facts similar to mine before?  What was the outcome?
  8. How often do you appear in the Court where my case is pending?
  9. Have you worked with opposing counsel before?  What is your experience with them?
  10. Approximately how long will my case take beginning to end and approximately how much will it cost?
