Choosing your lawyer at this crisis in your life is a very important decision. Many factors enter into the choice. Just as every client has an individual situation, every lawyer has a particular style. You will need to give thought to the type of lawyer you wish to hire. First, get a referral if possible. If your friends were satisfied in their divorces,

then that lawyer has experience and ability. If you cannot get a referral, look for certain things: ** Be sure your lawyer does a substantial amount of family law. Divorce is a complicated proceeding, and requires an attorney who has experience in that area. Ask what percentage of the lawyer's practice is devoted to domestic law. If the percentage is less than half, you may wish to reconsider. ** Ask how long your attorney has been practicing law, and what types of law they have practiced in their career. A general range of experience over a number of years is helpful. The greater the experience level of the lawyer, the greater likelihood of a reasonable settlement. ** Question the attitudes of the prospective attorney. Lawyers, like all people, have their own personality, style and attitudes. Some lawyers practice a very aggressive type of law that involves regular court litigation. Others are more settlement oriented. Decide if the lawyer you are talking with has the attitude that suits your situation. ** Find out how the law firm handles your documents and calls. Will you been sent copies of all documents automatically? How are your calls returned? If you need to talk to your attorney, how accessible is he/she? ** Question the billing structure and accounting methods. You should be receiving a monthly statement representing your retainer funds, and services rendered. Will the statement itemize the services? How are billing errors handled? ** Most importantly, look for integrity. A lawyer that deals fairly with you and others, is more able to settle your case without expensive litigation.
