A Different Kind Of Divorce Attorney & Law Firm For The Metro Denver Area
Choosing an attorney is one of the most important decisions you will make when you are entering into a divorce. The process of finding the right lawyer starts with examining your situation carefully – and then choosing someone who is not only knowledgeable about Colorado divorce law, but someone who will take the time to listen to you and thoroughly understand your situation.
When you hire a divorce attorney, you are placing a great deal of trust in that person to safeguard your rights and interests at a time of extreme personal difficulty. Sometimes it feels as if everything is on the line, so the attorney you retain to represent you needs to be someone who can structure a divorce settlement that is in your best interests and is as favorable to you as possible.
Who your lawyer is as a person will become very important to you. Is he or she someone whose judgment you can trust? Does this person pay close attention to you and your problems? Does he or she answer your questions and make appropriate suggestions? Do you feel that this person is someone who will have your best interests at heart? Choosing a Denver divorce lawyer is a major decision that can potentially affect the rest of your life, so the answers to these questions are important.

Legal Fees and Firm Policies
Whenever you are considering hiring an attorney, you will want to pay very close attention to the firm’s legal fees and billing policies. They should be transparent and clearly explained, so here are some questions to ask:
- Will I be billed on an hourly basis? If so, what is the hourly rate?
- Does this rate vary among the people who work at the firm, depending upon the type of work they do?
- Are different rates charged for different types of work (depositions, for instance, as opposed to office work)?
- How will expenses for ordinary office expenses (copying, postage, etc.) be charged?
- Do I pay in advance for your services?
- Do you collect a retainer fee? If so, is it considered to be an advance deposit?
- How is the retainer fee applied to my bill?
- Is the retainer fee refundable if I discontinue your services or if the legal work is completed before the entire retainer has been used?
- Is there a written fee agreement between the two of us?
- If so, what will be included in the fee agreement?
