I believe the best way to choose a lawyer is to meet with him or her face to face. A lawyer may be skilled and competent, yet you may not feel comfortable with that lawyer. It is important to choose a lawyer who is not only competent but also with whom you feel comfortable, as you will probably spend many hours together discussing the details of your life.
This is one of the main reasons I offer a free one-hour consultation. I want us to have the opportunity to get to know each other. Your divorce doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and who you are, what you believe, and things of that nature are important. They all matter.
