Here are 10 things that you will never hear from your Divorce Attorney Say:
1. You’ll probably end up paying much more than the rate in the advertisement
Does your lawyer know that his ad said that he would win your case for less than $250 even though you have already paid $450 in fees and the case isn’t over yet? Of course he does! Will he tell you? Don’t think so.
2. My practice is sued a lot
Now why would your lawyer share this information? That’s right, he wouldn’t.
3. My lack of fiscal skills may affect your case
Divorce cases often require accounting knowledge and he knows this, but if he can’t do it, he probably still won’t tell you.
4. I make false promises
Divorce Attorneys are like Politicians, they make big promises for you to use their services, even if in reality they can’t fulfill them.
5. I rarely do divorce cases
If you are talking to a general lawyer, chances are they rarely do divorce cases, but they often don’t redirect you as they want the case.
6. Prepare for a Drop in Income
This always happens and clients are almost never prepared.
7. Stop Crying
Lawyers know that this is a stressful time for you so it’s alright to cry.
8. You don’t need me
If you know the legal bit, you may not need a lawyer.
9. I have no time for you
Once you have the cash, they won’t turn you away.
10. I’m stalling the case
The longer the case, the higher the fees, so lawyers sometimes stall their cases.
