Do Not Hire “Just Any” Divorce Attorney

The lawyer you hire to represent you in your Dallas divorce can make or break your case. The right divorce lawyer will be your partner throughout your entire divorce journey, and even possibly years afterwards as issues arise with the divorce agreement. The right lawyer will understand your goals for divorce and take proactive measures to ensure those goals are met. The right lawyer will make every effort to achieve the best possible outcome while keeping legal fees and litigation to a bare minimum.

At the Clark Law Group, we are our clients’ partners in divorce, and should you find yourself facing an impending separation, we are waiting to be your partner, too.

The Value of a Strong Attorney-Client Relationship

No matter the circumstances surrounding your divorce, the proceedings are going to be anything but easy. In addition to some emotional turmoil, you will be under a lot of stress and worried about the outcome. While a good divorce attorney cannot take away your emotional pain, he or she can ensure that the process is as smooth and stress free as possible. A good divorce lawyer can also…

Provide Unwavering Support and Resources.

Though you are not likely to be your attorney’s only client (making it difficult for him or her to be there for you whenever you are in need), a great attorney will have a team of legal associates who can provide support and guidance whenever possible. Furthermore, a good lawyer will have a variety of resources available to prepare your case, such as paralegals, junior associates, assistants, and online articles that should be able to address any questions or concerns that you may have.

Be Available to Adequately Represent You.

Before hiring an attorney to represent you in your Dallas divorce, make sure that he or she has adequate availability. As we mentioned earlier, it is unlikely that you will be an attorney’s only client, but you do not want to be one of dozens of clients either. Your attorney should have enough time to build your case, prepare your paperwork, be there to support you, and represent you in a timely fashion. If you hire an attorney who is overbooked, your divorce may drag on months longer than necessary or, in the worst case, be handled without care.

Communicate Clearly With You.

Finally, a great divorce attorney should have no problem communicating with you and vice versa. Divorce is a personal event in one’s life, and the last thing you need is an attorney who cannot or is unwilling to understand what you are going through and/or cannot or is unwilling to communicate honestly with you about your case. When you work with an attorney who is open and honest with you, you will find that the process will go much more smoothly than you could ever have imagined.
