How Do I Choose a Pennsylvania Divorce Lawyer?

By Sheryl Rentz on March 3, 2014

If you’re looking for an experienced divorce attorney in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, you may feel that you have more questions than answers.  Divorces impose stress on those who face them, and finding an attorney who will protect your interests and those of your children can feel overwhelming.

When looking for a Pennsylvania divorce lawyer, consider several factors: the attorney’s experience, his or her explanations and advice, and your comfort level when it comes to talking to and understanding a particular lawyer.

Consider the following tips:

  • Does the attorney specialize in divorce and family law? Family law differs from other areas of law, like injury law or criminal law, in several key ways. An attorney who specializes in divorce and family issues and who has extensive experience in this area will be better equipped to meet your needs than one who does not.
  • Can the attorney answer your questions to your satisfaction? No attorney can guarantee a particular outcome in your divorce, but the attorney you choose should be one who can explain your rights and options, identify possible steps and their consequences, and answer your questions in a way you understand.
  • Does the attorney seem capable of meeting your needs? If you have young children, your attorney should understand and express the need to look out for their best interests.  If you expect to go through mediation, your attorney should be an effective problem-solver with the ability to negotiate.  If you expect your divorce to be an unusually contentious one, look for a lawyer with courtroom experience in addition to these other skills.

Do not trust just anyone to help you achieve the best possible outcome in your divorce. Seek the guidance and representation of a highly-experienced, compassionate, and tenacious lawyer. Sheryl R.
