How is a Divorce Attorney, an investment in your future?
Q client told their lawyer that hiring a lawyer to handle divorce is like investing in your future. If you don’t choose the right one, it could be a very bleak future.
I don’t say that to be the oh no woe is you… but it’s something to think about.
When you attorney first meets you to talk about your case, they should be forthright and honest about the good, the bad and the ugly on your legal matter. It is not appropriate for a divorce attorney to paint only the rainbow and puppies and kitties picture when there could be serious issues that need to be resolved. That doesn’t mean that your attorney should paint a doom and gloom picture either. You should feel an establishment of trust with the person on the other side of the desk and you should believe that a healthy attorney client relationship will mean mutual respect, give and take, and total honesty.
The point is that if you feel judged by the attorney you are meeting with, or if you don’t feel like you can share all the dark dirty secrets of your marriage and divorce with the attorney you are meeting with – then that might be a red flag that that attorney isn’t the one for you.
Family law issues can become extremely complex. Securing strong legal representation from an attorney who knows Florida divorce law is the first step toward the outcome you deserve. If you are concerned about what will happen to your children, the future of your home and other assets, or the overall costs of divorce, schedule an initial consultation. Most attorneys will do this for free.
