"If it is not set up for trial, do attorney's make mnore money?"

Actually, it is the opposite... Going to trial is prohibitively expensive..

My first lawyer knew I couldn't afford the expense of a trial and therefore did not prepare for one..

He hoped to settle but it never happened.. He left me when I ran out of money..

If you are determined to go to trial, are you SURE that you have hired a TRIAL lawyer??

My research (after the fact, unfortunately) determined that there are only a small percentage of litigators in the divorce attorney community...

98% of all cases get settled before trial.. 98% of most lawyers are NOT required to be master litigators..

The attorney, who took my case in the end.. Litigates all day, every day of the week...

She is well-known and well-respected in judicial circles.. Her ability to recite case law from memory and her high standard of ethics are unsurpassed.. When she raises an objection in court, she is not overruled..

But it comes at a cost.. My legal fees are in excess of $100k...
