What To Look For In An Newport Beach Divorce Attorney
Free initial consultation: Some lawyers offer
initial free consultations. This is an excellent way to meet with an attorney and determine how that
attorney sees your case and if you would work well together.
Find out the answer to the following questions: What are their fees? What costs will you be expected to pay, such as, copying,
faxes and postage? How often will they be in contact with you? Where is
your lawyer licensed to practice law? How quickly does he or she return
phone calls? If the attorney is unavailable, is there someone else who
can handle emergencies or urgent questions? You may have other questions
and a free consultation is the time to ask.
Look around the office when you are there: Is there a receptionist or office manager? What is this person's demeanor
like- are they pleasant and personable? Does the office seem organized
or chaotic and disorganized?
Ask the attorney how many divorce cases they have handled: For instance, if there are any major areas of
child custody or a large amount of assets to be divided or your case is likely to be
a divorce that will be heavily
contested; are they experienced in those types of cases? It is also important to
know how well the attorney knows the judges in the Court where your case
will be filed and how long he or she has practiced in that geographical area.
Request references and seek out their history of practice: If you were referred by a friend or relative someone you know or trust
that may be enough. However, if you do not have that referral, it is perfectly
acceptable and responsible to ask for the names of past or current clients,
who with their permission, may be contacted as a reference. Another way
to find out more about the attorney is to call or go online to the state
Supreme Court in order to find out if it there have been any disciplinary
actions against the specific attorney.
