In her article “9 Questions to Keep Your Divorce Lawyer Honest,” Diane Mercer (attorney, mediator and author) advocates asking specific and tough questions of your divorce attorney.
I think these are wonderful questions to ask BEFORE you hire an attorney.
Beware of the attorney that says that there is no worst case scenario, that your case has a slam dunk argument, or that he/she is 100% certain your argument will prevail. This type of attorney just wants your money.
Any competent attorney knows that the outcome of a divorce is never guaranteed or certain and should be more than willing to give you honest answers to these questions.
As a client, having your expectations set prior to litigation is essential to help you manage your emotions and expectations during the process.
