Top 5 Questions to Ask a Divorce Attorney

When it comes to choosing a Denver divorce attorney to represent you, the best way to go about it is to interview your prospective lawyer as if you were conducting a job interview. And in many ways, that is exactly what you are doing. You will be seeking the most favorable results possible for yourself in your upcoming divorce, so a "job interview" is certainly not out of line. The following questions should form the basis of your conversation:

1. What are your credentials as a Colorado divorce attorney?

Your divorce attorney must be someone who is knowledgeable about Colorado's laws affecting divorce and family law issues. These issues include laws covering child support, child custody, spousal maintenance, taxes (state and federal), insurance (property and life), division of marital property, and much more.

2) Who are the people in your law firm?

Before you hire an attorney you will want to know about the entire firm's legal team. Who are they and what are their credentials? A favorable outcome in your divorce settlement will frequently depend upon how skilled and knowledgeable your legal counsel is, so definitely ask what they bring to the table.

Divorce Matters has six exceedingly skilled and experienced attorneys: Glen Goldman, Doug Thomas, Kathlyn Laraway, Emily Roberts, Charlene Madrid, and William E. Smith. The firm's co-founder, Glen Goldman, has been recognized since 2005 by the legal profession's Martindale Hubbell for achieving the "highest possible peer review rating for legal ability and ethical standards."

3) Is your firm focused on divorce and family law?

Why do we call our law firm Divorce Matters? The answer to that question is that when it comes to the issues involved in a divorce, they all matter and we strive to provide the best service and advice our clients going through a divorce and for issues, such as custody, that can arise after you are divorced.

4) Why does this matter to me?

It matters because family law covers such a wide range of issues pertinent to marriage and divorce. These issues begin even before marriage – with prenuptial agreements, for instance. They also include women's issues and rights and men's issues and rights, plus the processes involved in divorce itself, such as mediation and the many considerations involved in mediating a divorce and reaching a settlement.

5) How much will my legal fees be?

This is a big question, one not to be left out of your first interview with us. We will be happy to discuss our fees and billing policies, for we feel that complete honesty and transparency are extremely important when it comes to this issue. First, however, we must become acquainted with the particulars of your situation so that we can make an accurate assessment of the time necessary to work on your case.

Your legal fees will depend upon a number of things, but the most important component is how complex and time-consuming your case will be. If, for instance, you and your spouse own a great deal of real estate, your divorce case will inevitably take more time than a more simple one where the only property a couple owns together is their home.
