Finding the Divorce Lawyer Who is Right for You

By Leslie Fineberg on August 20, 2013

Chicago DivorceDivorcees often have misconceptions about the representation they should get for their divorce case. Some believe the gender of an attorney plays an important role; supposedly, men make more aggressive lawyers while women are better at compromise. Others believe there are very specific approaches that see more success in the courtroom. For example, a divorcee might prefer an attorney with a meaner approach over a “nice guy” attorney. However, these ideas are all far from the truth.

There is no such thing as the perfect approach. There is no one perfect “type” of attorney.

Divorce attorneys who do well for their clients do not narrow themselves to certain methods and tactics. They approach each and every case with fresh minds and formulate customized strategies that fit the specific needs and desires of their clients. An attorney who acts otherwise and forces clients to conform to his or her methods should be dropped immediately. Confidence is a desirable trait in an attorney, but stubbornness isn’t.

While searching for a divorce attorney who is right for your case, you should conduct interviews with the ones who seem the most promising. Ask them these four questions to find out if they’re the one:

  1. Do you specialize in family law, particularly divorce?
  2. Are you familiar with the legal trends of my case’s county?
  3. What specific strategies will you use to help me get what I want?
  4. Have your clients’ divorce cases gone to trial often, and what were the outcomes?

If your divorce case is in Illinois, look no further. The Chicago divorce attorneys at Nottage and Ward are knowledgeable, open-minded, and most of all, loyal. To get in touch with this prestigious firm that puts clients’ needs in front of everything else, call (312) 332-2915.
