You don't normally buy things without knowing the cost.  Why should your lawyer be any different?

Are you worried that hiring a good divorce lawyer means writing a blank check?  Do you have friends or family who feel they paid too much for too little legal help?  Are you afraid a divorce lawyer might prolong your case simply to make more money?  I get it.  I can help you.

You should retain control over how much you pay in attorney fees.  When I started practicing law 14 years ago, it didn't seem fair that people were required to prepay thousands of dollars for unperformed services.  Of course, the reason divorce lawyers work this way is because they are afraid of not getting paid.  It doesn't have to be that way.  Attorneys are supposed to be trusted advisers.

I believe that if I provide exceptional legal services to every person, every day, people will eagerly pay my bills.

To prove it, I've created a new, limited, divorce pilot program that allows people to control what they pay.  Currently, I am searching for 10 people to participate.

How does it work?  First, we start with no retainer.  Zero.  Every Friday, I email you a copy of your divorce bill for that week.  Each weekend, you review the bill and decide how much I'm worth.  And no, I'm not a discount lawyer or charity.  I'm just a guy who believes old fashioned customer should rule the day.  On Sunday night, you complete a form rating my services and pay your bill online using a credit card.  That's it.

What's the catch?  Nothing.  If we decide to part ways (because I believe you're not paying me a fair wage), you don't owe me anything.  Period.

The Only Divorce Strategy that Works

"If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there." Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

There is only one divorce strategy that works.  It's not a secret.  It's just ignored by most people most of time.  Here it is, "Tear-off the band-aid as quickly and cleanly as possible.  It's gonna hurt, but better times lie ahead."  That's all you really need to know.  The rest is just gibberish.

Okay, maybe that's slightly glib, but not by much.  When I help people, I always start with the end in mind.  You need to imagine what your life will look like 6 months, 12 months, and 24 months from now so we can develop a realistic plan to get you there.  And yes, I meant "realistic."  Just because you've always loved music doesn't mean you should burn through savings pursuing a recording career.  Some things are more likely than others.  This is where I can help.

Once our plan is written (and it does need to be written), we spend the rest of our time executing it.  Your job is to approach your divorce like a CEO runs a business.  If something advances our plan, we do it.  If it doesn't, we don't.  You make the hard calls.  Things will get emotional at times, but emotion can't dictate your future.  If you let it, you'll waste thousands of dollars and be no better off than when you started.
