Are you about to get divorced? If so, you most likely have a lot on your mind, and one of those things may be deciding what attorney you’re going to hire. The truth is, the attorney you choose can make a world of a difference, and choosing a lawyer to represent you is no small decision. For this reason, our Shelby County, Tennessee divorce lawyer has composed a short list of some of the most important things you should ask yourself before hiring an attorney for your divorce. Please continue reading to learn more.

Here’s What to Look for in a Memphis Divorce Lawyer

Some of the critical questions you need to ask yourself before proceeding with any divorce lawyer are as follows:

  • Is my attorney knowledgeable? Rather obviously, your attorney needs to have an understanding of the law. If your attorney can’t answer basic questions about the process or your concerns, there’s a strong chance that the attorney is not the right one for you.
  • Does my attorney only dabble in family law? Many attorneys practice several fields of law but don’t have a focus in any of them. Here at Rice Law, we exclusively practice family law, so when you turn to us, you can feel confident in our depth of knowledge and experience in the field.
  • Does my attorney make me feel comfortable? As you know, the basis of any successful relationship is trust. This is no different when it comes to attorney-client relationships. Further, when it comes to rather personal legal matters such as divorce, you’ll want an attorney you feel comfortable with. Our legal team is comprised of compassionate, dedicated legal advocates who are more than willing to listen to your story, understand your goals, and fight, in your corner, every step of the way. When we take your case, you are our number one priority.
  • How is my attorney rated on Google? Many of us don’t eat at a restaurant, hire a plumber, or even purchase an item off Amazon without first reading reviews on the product or service in question. Why should this be any different when hiring an attorney? Rice Law is proud to say that we maintain almost a 5-star rating on Google after being in business for decades, a testament to our hard work and dedication to our clients.
