How do I hire a good divorce attorney?

It’s important to spend an adequate amount of time researching and vetting several divorce attorneys before you hire one. Start by searching for top-rated lawyers near you, and read through their clients’ reviews. Get an idea of their reputation, how successful they are and how they set their pricing. 

Make sure each attorney you’re considering is admitted to the bar in the state where your divorce could be adjudicated (ask your prospective lawyer first if you aren’t sure which state is right). And when you feel like you have a good list of potential divorce lawyers who can handle your case, contact them to get price estimates, their hourly rates and any other pricing terms.
