Finding a Sacramento Divorce Attorney

There are several places where one could look for the best divorce lawyers in the city.

Choosing a Sacramento divorce attorney is in some respects much like making any other major consumer purchase—client must do his or her research. Ask the friends and colleagues for recommendations. Check the Internet and review lawyers' websites. Check with the local bar association and the state bar for disciplinary actions. Client can check legal rating services on the websites such as BBB. There are all kinds of lawyers out there. Some are experienced and some are just starting out. A lawyer can practice as a sole practitioner, or as a partner or associate in a firm. Some are overworked and some do not have enough clients. Finding and evaluating the attorney may be the single most important thing client do in his or her case.

A good way to find a family lawyer is to check the Internet. One place to look is lawyer’s directories or websites, which maintains a national directory with biographies, credentials, and ratings from other attorneys and judges. The highest rating is "AV," and only about 10% of all lawyers have this rating. Client can also find good family lawyers on the internet and other websites. Word of mouth is an excellent way to find an attorney. With half of all marriages ending in divorce, chances are that client knows people who have been divorced. Ask the friends or relatives who have been divorced about their divorce lawyers.

There are other places client can go as well. The family law section of the county, state, or national bar associations can usually give client several recommendations. Client can frequently find seminars on divorce given by lawyers, and client can go to see if you like the presenter. If client see a therapist, he or she probably knows a good divorce lawyer. (Therapists frequently recommend patients to divorce lawyers and vice versa.) When client have selected one or more candidates, call and schedule an interview. Client may or may not be charged for the consultation, depending on the practice in the geographic area. Many family law attorneys charge for initial consultations because it disqualifies the lawyer and the law firm from representing the other spouse, and the Sacramento divorce attorneys is working at the initial consultation, gathering facts and giving advice. It is more than a sales call. From the point of view, it is more than the lawyer's job interview. Client will be telling a stranger the intimate details of the marriage and family life. It is not an experience most people want to repeat any more than absolutely necessary. Client will be receiving advice regarding crucial decisions that will affect the family and property in important ways.
