So, you have finally decided to get a divorce from your worthless spouse, "Sluggo." But do you know the best way to find a good divorce lawyer? As you may already know, we, at The Goolsby Law Firm, LLC, are an Augusta, Georgia father and son family law practice which offers a free initial consultation. We therefore recommend that you should check the ads or internet and ask your family and friends for recommendations about good, experienced divorce attorneys and then you should simply call the prospective divorce lawyer to discuss your case. But please be aware that, while we, at The Goolsby Law Firm, may offer a free initial consultation, many divorce attorneys will charge you, up to $250.00, before they will agree to take your divorce case.
But make an appointment and pay for such a consultation, if you must, because the main point of this post is that it is imperative that you actually meet with the divorce lawyer who you are considering, before you retain him or her. Only after meeting with the divorce attorney, and getting some answers to your questions, can you effectively decide whether or not this lawyer is the best divorce lawyer for you and your divorce case! And it's not just good, "legal" answers to your questions that you should be looking for! You should also be "eyeballing" them and evaluating whether or not the divorce attorney seems focused and compassionate about you and your case.
These are just a few practical tips to help you find the best divorce attorney for your divorce case. We can all hope that good ole Sluggo isn't so careful in making his selection of a divorce lawyer, can't we!?
