You Probably Have Questions

How to Choose the Best Divorce Attorney for Your Circumstances

Choosing the best divorce attorney to represent you is an important decision. You want to make sure you select a lawyer who has experience handling divorce cases and understands the laws in Texas. Here are some tips for choosing the best family law firm:

  1. Research potential attorneys. Look for reviews online, ask friends and family for referrals, and contact your local bar association for recommendations.
  2. Examine experience. Make sure the attorney you choose is experienced in handling divorce cases specifically. Ask about their experience and success rates to families with similar issues. In addition, your attorney should have experience handling Houston divorces and are regulars at the local courthouses.
  3. Check for disciplinary action. Look online or call your bar association to see if the attorney has any disciplinary actions against them or if they have been sued for malpractice.
  4. Ask about the cost. Ask about fees and payment plans before making a decision. Make sure you understand all the costs associated with hiring an attorney, so there are no surprises down the line.
  5. Schedule a consultation. It is important to schedule a consultation with potential attorneys to get a better feel for their style and approach to handling divorce matters. This will also allow you to ask questions and discuss your case in more detail.
  6. Discuss the case openly. Finally, make sure you feel comfortable working with the attorney you choose and that they are someone you can trust to handle your case effectively and efficiently.
