Telltale Signs That You've Hired the Wrong Attorney

Jun 05, 2024

Hiring a lawyer is a critical step in the divorce process, but what happens if you get it wrong?

If you suspect you've hired the wrong lawyer for your divorce, it's not too late to start over. Don't settle. You deserve a reputable lawyer, who has your best interest in mind and who will fight for what you want. Here are a few telltale signs that suggest you may have hired the WRONG attorney for your divorce.

If your attorney talked a big game initially but seems unfamiliar with the divorce court system in your state, or isn't following the process, causing unnecessary delays, they aren't the one for you. There are many different law specialties and areas. You need to have an attorney who specializes in divorce and family law. This is the key to having the best advocate for you in divorce court. It's time to find the RIGHT attorney.

If you ask questions about cost and there is ambiguity, beware. You want to understand the fee structure up front. While an attorney won't be able to tell you for sure how much your divorce will cost, they should be able to give you a range of fees and explain the things that could increase your costs.

Divorce is expensive and you are fighting for the best possible settlement. Every penny counts, so having a good understanding of the firm's billing process from hourly or retainer rates to additional court or administrative fees, is key. If your attorney isn't respecting your agreed upon budget, it's time to consider a change.

There's nothing worse than spending your hard-earned money on an attorney to represent you in your divorce and having them waste your time by being late to meetings, missing court deadlines, or being unprepared.

At the end of the day, you don't just need an attorney to help you through your divorce, you need to find the RIGHT one. An attorney with a seemingly good record can often end up being the wrong fit for you and your case, so it's important to get qualified help.
