Ask for Recommendations and Check Reviews
Find out what other people think and have experienced with their divorce attorney. Did they have a good experience or was it stressful? Did they get an outcome they were happy with or does it seem like they consistently fail to get adequate results for their clients? Family law cases are of a sensitive nature and require a delicate touch. That’s why we recommend looking at others experiences first before meeting with a lawyer. One thing we do to help make a decision is to offer our first consultation free of charge.
Research Potential Family Law Firms
Before making their choice, we suggest that you research and check the reputation of the lawyers you are considering hiring. This includes looking into their education, qualifications and record. Researching the potential candidates may help ensure you select an attorney who is experienced in dealing with issues similar to yours. At Marx, Altman & Johnson, we’ve have decades of experience handling a vast array of divorce cases. You could say that we’ve seen it all.
Look into costs
According to the Texas State Law Library, Texas is a community property state, which means each spouse has equal right to their marital assets. Consequently, people’s resources may be limited until their divorce is finalized. Since the costs of legal representation can vary significantly, it is advisable for divorcing spouses to ask about the fee structures. Doing so may help them narrow down their choices, and make certain they are selecting a lawyer that will not break their budgets.
