Picking a Divorce Lawyer.
It's a question people ask all the time. What would I do? Only 2 things would matter to me. In order of importance:
1. Trustworthiness; and
2. Will they fight like hell to protect me, especially when I'm not around.
That's it. The rest is garbage.
I couldn't care less if they were a super lawyer of the galaxy, a member of the best shoes club, or loved my sister's high school bestie. Everyone went to law school, right?
Results are what matter. Period. Full stop.
What should I do?
You want me to tell you what to do? Okay . . .
Of course, the answer is to "trust your gut." Nothing else you can do.
But I would watch any lawyer like a hawk. Put a magnifying glass on what they do, not what they say. I'd try to figure out if they'd call me an idiot when I deserved it, which I do sometimes. No need for a "yes man." Or a "yes woman."
But I'm Freaking Out!
You should be. It's divorce.
Hard Truth #1. No such thing as an easy divorce. Probably never will be. Are you surprised?
I need answers!
No, you don't.
Hard Truth #2. You're not ready for answers. Not yet. Not at the beginning. You need to be thinking about questions.
Think I'm wrong? Email me your simple question. I'll give you the answer. Free. No strings attached. My hunch is that it won't make you feel any better. My email address is in "About Rob" -- keep clicking forward.
This doesn't help me at all!
Hard Truth #3. No website can help you. But a person can. Which brings me back to the beginning, a perfect place to end.
Find someone you trust.
And try not to do anything rash until we talk. Or until you find someone you do trust, if I seem a bit shifty.
Don't quit now. There's so much more read.
