Did You Hire the Right Divorce Attorney?

Hiring the right divorce attorney is hard. The process of finding a lawyer can be long, and often involves hours of research and reading client testimonials. Even after you have done your due diligence, you may still find yourself doubting whether or not you made the best decision. How can you really tell if you’ve hired the right divorce attorney?

Below, we highlight the top 4 ways you can tell you hired the right divorce attorney.

You’re on the same page.

You need to be on the same page with your attorney to have a successful divorce or child custody case. Disagreements are normal, but problems will arise if your lawyer is pushing you to have a contested divorce while you’d rather settle quickly.

They’re experienced experts.

Is your attorney experienced? Are they experts in matrimonial and family law?

If you answered “yes” to either of those questions, then you can rest assured that your case is in good hands. Matrimonial and family law are incredibly complex areas, and should only be tackled by a seasoned pro.

They are responsive and available.

Your divorce attorney should be responsive, and available to discuss your case with you. If they not respond to emails or phone calls, you should consider hiring a different lawyer. Unfortunately, if your attorney is unresponsive with you, then there is a good chance they do not communicate with the opposing counsel. Failing to communicate can result in missed deadlines and incorrect information on court documents.

You trust your attorney.

Having any amount of distrust in your lawyer is a major sign that they are not the right attorney for you. Divorce and child custody cases are very personal matters, and you rely on your attorney to help you during this sensitive time.

Trust is a key component to building a strong attorney-client relationship, and without it, you will not feel confident in your lawyer’s ability to fight for you. These insecurities are an indication that you did not hire the right divorce attorney.

What can you do if you didn’t hire the right attorney?

While not hiring the right attorney isn’t ideal, you can take measures to fix the situation. You have the right to change lawyers during your case. The process is common, and rather simple.

At Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C., we pride ourselves on how seamlessly our team of attorneys are able to take over an existing case. Our experience, expertise, and varied forms of representation, have allowed us to represent thousands of New Yorkers during their divorce and family law matters.
