Finding The Right Divorce Attorney

Category : Celebrity, Divorce Attorney

“I’ll be back,” said Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator. However, probably not in this marriage. It was announced that Maria Shriver has just hired Los Angeles divorce attorney, Laura Wasser. This love-child shocker certainly made a complete mess of this seemingly beautiful marriage of 25 years, which is an incredible amount of time in Hollywood. According to People.com, “Maria hasn’t decided yet if she wants to end her marriage,” says one source. Wasser was hired before the news of the affair went public, sources say.”

If you are getting a divorce and seeking an attorney, here are some tips that may help you to find the right person to represent you:

*Ask a family member or friend for a recommendation. It is much better to have some background on the person and a referral, rather than a cold call.

*Do your research. Google the attorney’s you are considering and see what positive and/or negative feedback is out there about them. Of course, you can’t believe everything you read, but this may help a bit.

*Meet the attorney in-person before handing over a retainer. You need to get a feeling for what they are all about and if you can work with them.

*If you do meet them in-person, let them do most of the talking. You certainly know what you’re thinking, so see what they’re thinking.

*If you can, speak with a few attorney’s and see who makes the most sense before making your final decision.

Women especially should hire a really tough, experienced attorney with an excellent track record. It’s not the time in one’s life to worry about appearing “nice and ladylike”! You know what will happen…..

Here’s a bit of advice I’ll never forget from a divorce lawyer. You need to decide which outcome you want more: money or revenge.

Georgia you have some good points on divorce attorney’s. You need a shark not a goldfish…
