How to Choose a Divorce Attorney

Choosing a divorce attorney in Houston can be a difficult process because there are so many, but it is critical that you do find a family law firm that fits your needs. Many family law firms in Houston offer the same legal services so while it is important to find out information about the firm under consideration; it's even more important to identify specific information about your divorce or family law case.

First, you'll want to determine the severity of your divorce case. Are you looking for a simple and quick divorce process where both parties involved are in agreement? Is mediation an option for your divorce, or will your case require litigation? Answering these types of questions will help you determine what kind of divorce lawyer you'll need. If your divorce process is fairly simple, it will be relatively easy to find a knowledgeable attorney to represent you. However, if your case involves children, estate planning, or property division, we advise choosing a divorce attorney that has the experience to guide you through a more difficult process.

Second, we recommend selecting several divorce lawyers who fit your needs. Review their websites, call their offices, and do some research on their attorneys, paralegals and staff. It is also very helpful to find out about the firm's reputation. Many law firms will not be able to share confidential information from previous cases, but you can still find out how long the firm has been in business and if they're board certified in the particular area of law in which you are interested.

Third, when selecting a divorce attorney, we recommend setting up consultations. Go see the firm's office, meet their staff and determine if their firm fits your needs. During this time, you should be able to understand how the firm operates and if the first firm doesn't seem like a good fit, you can set up a consultation with another one. Some attorneys offer free consultations, but if you do have to pay preliminary fees, it could be worth the extra step should your case end up in court.
