What should I look for in a divorce attorney?

 

Back to Morristown, New Jersey Family Law Attorney Video FAQs

 

Video Transcription

You should be looking in a divorce attorney for someone who listens. Where’s they earn a living by being communicators, by talking, by writing, by negotiating, but the best lawyers are people who listen and then craft a solution to a person’s problem based on their unique circumstances.

A good lawyer isn’t a therapist, a priest, a rabbi, a minister. They have a specialty in divorce or should have a specialty in divorce litigation. I would want to know whether my attorney specializes in that particular subject matter. That’s all I do and that’s all I have done for the most part in my professional career, so you want to be certain that you have an attorney who functions in the niche area in which you’re seeking to hire counsel.

I think you would be looking for someone who isn’t taking a cookie cutter approach to your divorce. That each divorce is different, just as each marriage is different, as each person is unique, the matter in which the divorce should proceed should be adjusted for that person’s particular needs, that family’s particular needs.
