Finding the Right Divorce Lawyer for Your Case

The early stages of separation are the most stressful, and a clear head for the decision-making ahead may take a back seat to the desire to get it all over and done with. As a result, many people don’t find a good lawyer for their family affairs. Your selection of a divorce lawyer is crucial to the outcome of your case and also how the case will progress from beginning to end in terms of cost, length of time, and stress. Many people change lawyers during their case, even though such a change can be costly. The first step is to consider the question, “do I need a divorce attorney near me” or can you look a little further afield for the perfect person. Lawyers are adept at handling sensitive issues, but you will want to choose one who identifies with your situation and handles it with the sensitivity and discretion you deserve.

How to Find a Family Divorce Lawyer

Begin by identifying the need for a family divorce lawyer early on. If your divorce is imminent, it is worth meeting with an attorney so that you are familiar with him or her before the high-pressure situation to file or your papers are served arises. You should also reach out to trusted sources, or consider hiring a good lawyer who specializes in family law or divorce cases and is best experienced to properly go through your case as they will be familiar with the judges and they will know other attorneys. They will also have the most recent knowledge and experience to be able to handle your case and they will be familiar with trends and changes in the law.

Considerations for a Family Divorce Lawyer

  • How long have you been an attorney?
  • How many cases do you settle?
  • How do you approach a new case?
  • Do you require an upfront retainer?
  • Is there a good lawyer in your firm to work on my case?
  • How often will I receive a statement of my retainer?
  • Are you comfortable with the case?
  • Does the lawyer make you feel intimidated?
  • Is the lawyer a good listener?
  • Do you feel the lawyer will take a practical approach to your case?
  • Did the lawyer tell you anything you didn’t want to hear?

Looking for a Divorce Attorney to Help You

Whether you are asking the question, “how can I find a family lawyer near me,” or you are wondering how to find the right divorce attorney, you will want one with a strong track record for mediation and collaborative law. This means, everyone will get together to try and negotiate a settlement while trying to avoid a trip to court. Ask your lawyer if they have dealt with this type of law and whether or not they have had success.

I have dealt with Matt for a few years for a couple of matters for myself and for my mother-in-law. Matt has always been a man of his word; anything he said he would do was done as expected. He provided timely and accurate advice when requested. Matt never pushed services that were not required and at certain times he recommended less costly services that would achieve the same results. I highly recommend him as very honest and ethical. He always disclosed fees in advance and there were never any "surprise" fees.— jimcar13
Mr Nahrgang was easy to work with, and did an excellent job with my case. Though my case turned out to be more complex than we had originally realized, he handled every complication promptly and competently.— eyedoc89
I was first recommended to Matthew Nahrgang by a friend. I was having serious financial issues at the time. I went to Matt and had a conversation which set my mind at ease. He is straight to the point, honest and tells you how it is. No frills kind of guy. He also is confident in his business and knows the law very well, which is what set me at ease. It was not near a big deal as I thought it to be. He does what he says he is going to do and does it in a timely manner. I have used Matt a few times now and I've recommend him to many of my friends and business acquaintances. I highly recommend Matthew Nahrgang!— my1leelee
In relation to my bankruptcy and in retrospect, I was thankful that I had discovered Mr. Nahrgang and had engaged him to respresent me in my case. I found him to be respectful, understanding, highly knowledgeable and trustworthy. I appreciate all that he did on my behalf and have recommended him to friends and family.— Orangefit09
