Consulting Several Lawyers provides an Insight into their Approach and Attitude

Personal interaction is often the best way of understanding a lawyer’s attitude and approach towards prospective clients. Avoid lawyers who are forever answering calls on their mobile or talking to other clients/staff even while discussing your case. You will never get the kind of undivided attention you desire at a later stage of your case if the lawyer seems so distracted from the very beginning. If you are checking out a law firm, always ask to meet the actual lawyer who will handle your case. Ask about how accessible she is over telephone or personally, who will handle your issues in her absence and how she plans to tackle over difficult issues (for example division of property or child maintenance etc). Even if you are conducting a preliminary interview, the lawyer should come across as genuinely interested in your case rather than trying to just hook a client.

Consulting Several Lawyers provides an Insight into Likely Expenses

Hiring divorce lawyers is not cheap. Most of them require an initial retainer fee and then charge you on hourly rates. However, the lawyer will agree to a flat fee if your case is extremely simple or you just need an overall advice. Never feel shy to ask questions on what part of your money will be spent on covering related expenses (such as stationery costs, secretarial expenses, preparing documents, making photocopies, computer use, travel expense etc) and how much would you have to pay directly. Also discuss refund options on the retainer fee in case things don’t work out as smoothly as expected and you want to change your lawyer midway.
