Contrary to what many people believe, good divorce lawyers don’t push their clients into full-scale war. This only leaves behind damage and resentments that can linger for years.
The best outcome is a divorce that allows two people to begin to heal and get on with their lives. Toward that end, divorce attorneys help their clients to settle their divorce, if at all possible, rather than to go to trial. As you ask for recommendations, you should seek a divorce lawyer who will:
- act as a problem-solver and peacemaker;
- be courageous enough to tell you things you may not want to hear; and
- be courteous and cooperative in working with your spouse’s attorney.
