Best Divorce Attorney - Is there One?

We recently wrote a post about who is the best juvenile dependency attorney. The same question can be applied to divorce attorneys as well. And not surprisingly the answers are very similar.

The “best” attorney at anything is the one who is right for you. This may not be the answer you are looking for, but it’s better than simply hiring a lawyer because they proclaim themselves the best. Divorces can be very long and drawn out processes, so when it comes to your divorce you want to find an a divorce attorney who works for you. That will always be your best choice. It doesn’t matter if their name has been in the news, they have been hired by celebrities, or they have a top-floor office with a view of Malibu. If they don’t hear you, understand you, and know what you are looking for, it probably will not be a good long-term fit.

So the question isn’t “Who is the Top divorce attorney?” The question really is “Who is the top divorce attorney for You?”

In order to find that best attorney you should sit down and talk with a few to find the one you are most comfortable with, and has handled similar cases before. You should also find an attorney who hears what you want, and can help steer you in the right direction. If you are looking for the “top” California divorce attorney seek out references and referrals from friends in California who have also been divorced. They may be able to provide you with advice on an attorney they had a good experience working with.

And as with all professionals, not all attorneys are the same. The services they provide won’t be the same either. Some attorneys are extremely good at negotiations, some are good at courtroom hearings, and others are good at strategy. Make sure your attorney is an all around go-getter who has done it all before. You want someone who can negotiate a settlement out of court if that is warranted, or can help you fight it out in court if it comes to that. The real goal is for the divorce to go as amicably as possible. That can usually speed up the process, and cause less friction along the way. However, that is not always the case. In a lot of divorces there are hard feelings and anger. That’s when you need your lawyer to know how you feel and be able to help handle the situation.
