When it’s Time to Transition to a New Attorney

An attorney’s role during a divorce serves a vital part in navigating the process. Some might think finding new legal counsel could be daunting, but it is not an uncommon occurrence. Finding a new counsel will only aid you in the end and can be a positive development in your case.

There are multiple signs that an attorney is just not the right fit for you. You may observe that an attorney is acting unprofessionally, that the attorney refuses to listen to you, or you may feel that you are being kept in the dark. An attorney’s role is indispensable, and you need to be treated fairly, respected, and regularly informed about your case. Going through a divorce is a significant event in your life and it is imperative that your attorney treats it as such. An attorney representing you should answer each and every question you have promptly and keep you in the loop.

Being confident after your conversation with your present attorney helps you understand the legal process and can assist you in managing your own expectations and probable outcomes in your case. You need to be comfortable with each and every decision that your counsel is making on your behalf. The last thing you want is an ineffective presentation of the facts in your case or your stated goals and you deserve to be heard. Having an attorney that listens to you is key to providing information and hearing your priorities and concerns. Being articulate helps your counsel understand what you want, which will eventually aid your attorney in advocating for you. You want counsel that will be supportive while advocating on your behalf. You want someone that will be on time, be diligent, and be on task at all times. You do not want your counsel’s appearance in court to be sloppy. You do not want your attorney to be unethical, but rather upstanding.

You want your attorney to tell you the truth, even if it is not what you want to hear. This comes with the idea of transparency; your attorney should be upfront with each and every fee that is associated with their representation. The firm’s rate should be crystal clear and show an accurate display of the information that is provided. The last thing you want is any concerns about your present council.

Finding an attorney that fits your requirements is essential. If you are uncertain, you should ask questions pertaining to the attorney directly. These questions can include but are not limited to:

  • How long has your firm been involved in family law?
  • What is your fee structure?
  • How will communication be addressed during my case?
  • What does the divorce process entail?
  • What result can I expect and why?
