Build a List of Potential Lawyers
The first step in finding the right divorce lawyer for your case is to build a list of potential attorneys for the job. Begin by asking friends, family, and coworkers for referrals of divorce attorneys that they know or have worked with in the past. Do your own research online by looking at firm websites and third party sites that review divorce lawyers in your area. Once you have created an initial list of potential divorce attorneys, the next step involves narrowing the list to the top prospects.
Narrow the List
It is important to narrow the initial list of Florida divorce attorneys in order to save yourself time and potentially money in your search. Begin by eliminating any attorney that works too far from the county or courthouse where your case will take place. Remove any lawyers that do not work exclusively on Florida divorce and family law matters. Take any lawyers off the list that are not rated highly on third party websites or did not receive a good referral from someone that you know. Once the list is narrowed to the top candidates, the final step involves interviewing the attorneys in order to find the right one for you.
Schedule interviews with each of the remaining divorce attorneys on your list. It is important that you go into each interview with a list of prepared questions so that you can receive the same information from each lawyer, and you should also be prepared to answer questions about your case. Some of the most common questions asked in divorce attorney interviews include:
- How often do you practice in the court where my case will take place?
- How much of your practice is dedicated to divorce cases?
- Will you be working on my case, or someone else in the office?
- How often do you engage in mediation or collaborative divorce?
- How often does an issue go to trial?
- What is your success rate at trial?
- What is your fee structure for divorce cases?
- How do I contact you about my case?
With questions like these, you should be able to find a Florida divorce lawyer that is right for you and your case.
