Look, we all like bargains, don't we? But when you are looking for a divorce lawyer to handle your divorce, is it always best to go with the cheapest divorce attorney you can find?
Naturally, since we are Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, you wouldn't expect us to recommend that you always simply go with the cheapest lawyer out there, would you? But, as a matter of fact, the Goolsby Law Firm, LLC, offers some of the most affordable rates, particularly for uncontested divorces, in our entire community. We recommend you consider the following additional tips when you are selecting the best divorce lawyer for your divorce:
1. RECOMMENDATIONS FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS: Before you retain a divorce lawyer, we strongly recommend that you talk with trusted family members and friends about good, affordable divorce attorneys in your community. For instance, while one divorce attorney might be cheap, if your best friend has had a bad experience with that attorney, then you might want to consider that important information and pick someone else!
2. MEET WITH THE DIVORCE ATTORNEY BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO RETAIN THEM: We also generally recommend that you meet with a prospective attorney -- whether they come highly recommended, or whether you found them in the telephone book, or online -- before you make a decision about retaining them. In other words, make an appointment, sit down with them, and ask questions about them and about your divorce case. While some law firms charge a fee for such a meeting, we, at the Goolsby Law Firm, LLC, generally offer free initial consultations.
In short, we recommend that you shouldn't simply look for the cheapest lawyer out there to handle your divorce and all your important legal issues, ranging from child custody, to property division, to alimony. Instead, you should investigate! Please talk with family and friends, and meet with the prospective divorce attorney, before you make this important decision. While cost may be a factor, it should not be the only factor.
