Three Tips for Choosing the Right Divorce Lawyer for You

Making the decision to divorce is never an easy one. By choosing the right divorce attorney for your needs, you will hopefully gain an ally who will stand beside you and help you and help navigate the divorce process and protect your legal rights.

If you’re like many Houstonians, choosing a divorce lawyer is the first time trying to hire an attorney. Here are some tips for making the process easier and less stressful:

  1. Take online reviews with a grain of salt. Whether the review is amazingly negative or the most glowing review you have ever read, understand that online reviewers can say anything and usually will. The in-person opinion of an attorney will directly affect your divorce case. Don’t take an online review as the last word on any attorney.
  2. Meet in person before making your selection. By all means, take the words and suggestions of family, friends and colleagues when it comes to choosing an attorney. Often, those close to us have valuable insights to offer. But, the final decision needs to be yours. Trust your gut. You and your attorney will be spending a considerable amount of time together in the coming months. Is this person someone you can trust and are comfortable sharing things with?
  3. Understand what you want versus what you can achieve. It is your attorney’s responsibility and number one priority to make the process of getting divorced go as smoothly as possible, while protecting your rights at the same time. During the divorce process, the couple will have to sort out custody issues (if applicable) and financial issues. At the beginning of the process, make a list of your best-case scenario for each and the bottom line that you will accept. Take these lists with you as you interview lawyers. Doing this will help you focus on choosing the right lawyer for you and your needs!

I was in desperate need of legal protection for myself and my children when I met with Erinn Brown and Mathew Mahoney in February of 2011. Although I was very nervous and had never shared my story with anyone, they made me feel comfortable enough to be able to ask for help. They listened to me and together we formed a plan of action to bring my family the safety and security we so badly needed. They explained to me what was going on, answered all my questions and really put my mind at ease. Ms. Brown and Mr. Mahoney were always available to address my concerns and give me updates on the status of my case. This is a professional and aggressive firm who will fight for their clients. I hope no one ever has to deal with such a difficult situation as mine but if you do, I highly recommend contacting this firm.
