How to Successfully Communicate with Your Divorce Lawyer

Divorce Lawyer

When you’re going through a divorce, it’s important to have an experienced divorce lawyer on your side. A lawyer can provide you with valuable advice and improve your chances of getting a favorable settlement. However, you need to learn how to communicate with your lawyer to reach a successful outcome. 

Here are some helpful tips for communicating with your divorce lawyer.

Tell Your Lawyer the Entire Truth

In order for your divorce lawyer to help you to the best of his or her ability, he or she has to know the whole truth. That’s why you need to tell your lawyer all the facts upfront. Don’t leave any details out because you think they’re unimportant or embarrassing. Your lawyer has likely heard it all before and won’t pass judgment. If you don’t tell your lawyer the truth, it may delay your case.

Listen to What Your Lawyer Says

During your first consultation, your divorce lawyer will likely throw a lot of information your way. While this can be overwhelming, it’s important to pay careful attention and not doze off. The more information you know, the better off you will be. If you don’t understand something that your lawyer says, don’t be afraid to ask for clarification. You may also consider taking notes.

Avoid Berating Your Ex

It’s understandable that you may be furious with your former spouse. However, that doesn’t mean that you should spend your meetings with your divorce lawyer complaining about him or her. While your lawyer may be sympathetic towards your situation, he or she isn’t a mental health professional. If you want to discuss your emotions and feelings about your divorce, you may want to talk to a mental health therapist.

Understand That Your Lawyer Has Other Clients

When you are going through a divorce, you may want constant updates about your case. While it is important to stay informed, understand that your divorce lawyer may not be available to talk to you every moment of the day. Your lawyer has other clients to tend to and may not always get back to you right away. If your lawyer is busy when you contact him or her, just leave a message or call back at a later time.

Client Testimonials

As a disabled claimant, I can’t thank Hurwitz, Whitcher & Molloy enough for guiding me through these past fourteen years. No one else wanted my Workers’ Compensation case. No one! It was complicated. There were a lot of issues that made things difficult. They stuck with it well over a decade with preparedness, intelligence and grace. Mister Melvyn, he’s a good guy. Cathy, she’s so amazing.

I became a client of the Hurwitz firm in May of 1997 due to injuries I received while I was a meat cutter at I. Isenberg Meats in Buffalo, New York. Since my first encounter with your firm and up until the present day, I have been entirely satisfied with the way your firm has treated me.
