How to Choose the Best Divorce Lawyer
This video shows Ellen Wright, an attorney with the Wright Family Law group, discussing four top tips for choosing the best divorce lawyer in Massachusetts. This could be for any family law concerns.
You want to select someone that has solid online reviews through sites like Google and Yelp.
Ask the attorney for personal references from previous clients. You should look up the attorney on the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers. You are checking for any reprimands for personal misconduct.
Good positive collegial relationships are a good sign for someone that is going to fight for you but not cause tensions. Websites like avvo.com and lawyers.com have peer reviews.
If you can, avoid hiring a general practitioner. This type of lawyer knows a little about a lot of things. You will get more benefits from a lawyer that specializes in family law.
