How to Find the Best Attorney to Provide Representation in a Divorce Proceeding
The term “Best Attorney” is subjective and can have various meanings.
Many experienced family law attorneys are very competent and can provide excellent representation in a divorce proceeding.
In terms of selecting an attorney, clients have the internet and social media available to attempt to identify appropriate law firms and attorneys within those law firms.
Clients may have had friends or relatives that have been involved in a divorce proceeding and those persons may also be capable of making appropriate recommendations, in terms of law firms and attorneys.
There can be articles in the newspaper that identify certain law firms or attorneys that may appeal to a prospective client for representation.
Clients could attempt to contact attorneys and/or bar associations in terms of any recommendation of appropriate attorneys to provide representation.
If clients have the time, they could go to the Courthouse, and with respect to proceedings open to the public, they could view hearings otherwise watch certain attorneys in action.
The above are but a few ways to attempt to identify competent representation in a divorce proceeding. Regardless of the law firm or attorney hired for representation, the attorney-client relationship is based on trust, hard work, competency, experience, personalized attention, knowledge of the facts, knowledge of the law and the willingness by the law firm or attorney to make appropriate time to give priority to a particular client.
When the parties cannot reach an agreement on property division, the Illinois court will divide all the property and debts for them equitably. When a property settlement is finally reached, it must be in writing and signed by both parties.
