How to Take Advantage of Free Divorce Consultations

One of the most daunting parts about choosing a divorce attorney is paying to talk to one. I mean, they cost a lot. And the idea of paying for an initial consultation just so you can see if you might want to hire an attorney isn’t that appealing sometimes.

This is where divorce consultations come in to play. Many Utah divorce and family law attorneys offer divorce consultations as a way to get people in the door. Take advantage of this.

If I were in your shoes, I would be selective regarding who I scheduled a divorce consultation with. Don’t just pick ten names from the internet. Do some homework first. Read reviews. Read bios. See what percentage of divorce law an attorney practices.

After you’ve done this initial leg work, decide on three to five attorneys you really want to sit down and talk with. (Any more than five and you’ll lose track. Heck, I can’t even keep more than five attorneys straight, and I am one.)

When you sit down with these attorneys, treat their time with respect. If an attorney thinks your wasting time asking a few general questions, he or she will shut off. Come to every divorce consultation with the intent to find out as much about an attorney as possible.

With this in mind, decide the questions you want to ask beforehand, and try to limit your consultation to thirty minutes. You’ll know within just a few minutes whether you and a particular attorney are a good fit, so there’s no need to spend tons of time talking. (It’s kind of like dating: you know within about ten minutes whether you’re in to your date.)

Take notes during your consultation. After you’ve met with all the attorneys, compare notes. Determine whom you were most comfortable with, whom you thought was most knowledgeable, and who treated you with the most respect. Then, make a decision.

Like I said, you can find a good Utah divorce and family law attorney if you take proper advantage of divorce consultations. Be intentional in your search; it will pay off.

Overall from start to finish the best experience to have dealing with a time that is difficult.Andrew Christensen is very professional and out going to make this situation the best it could be and worked hard to make sure the divorce was fair for me.Over all, this firm really cares and treats you as a family or friend and just not a client, down to Marco Brown taking time to see how I was doing and offer to help in any way possible during my divorce while I was there for my first initial meeting.I would highly recommend anyone that has to go through a divorce to really reach out to the Brown Family Law firm and see for your self the experience I was able to receive from a top notch law firm.
Response from the owner: Devin, thank you for the kind words. Andrew appreciated the opportunity to help you with your situation.
Sophie was very helpful and explains the process and fees. Thank you!
Response from the owner: Corey, thank you for the kind words. Glad we could help.
My attorney Amy Pomeroy and assistant Melanie and Dani are awesome! It’s an easy case but due to the opposite party was failed to respond, the process went much longer than we expect. During the process Amy gets the necessary job done as quick as she can. The assistants made the most documentation jobs done in a reasonable time. I will get phone call or message to communicate for the status, what’s the next step, what should I expect. In the end, it’s a huge win. So I definitely recommend Brown Family Law. They are professional and handle the case very well.
Response from the owner: Yue, thank you for the kind words. Glad Amy was able to help you so well.
Dani always kept me updated and has great communication skills.

My experience with Brown Family Law is a positive one. I highly recommend them. This firm has very good communication with their clients. Attorney Paul Waldron represents me and I’m very happy with the experience. My questions and concerns are always answered quickly and respectfully. I’m grateful to have Mr. Waldron and Brown Family Law in my corner during this difficult time for my family.
Response from the owner: Jodie, glad we were able to communicate with you so effectively and quickly. Thank you for your kind words.
I recently used Clay in a divorce case and could not have been happier. He was efficient, knowledgeable, and made me feel like I was his only client. The process was easy and he was always there to reassure me or help me with decisions. I would highly recommend Brown Family Law.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Mendi.
Dani excelled as a paralegal, providing crucial support with exceptional skills!

I highly recommend Nathaniel and his team. They listened to me, navigated me, educated me, and always called when they said they would. Going through a divorce was very hard but they helped me get through it and showed compassion the whole time.
Response from the owner: Amy, thank you for your recommendation, and glad we could help you through your divorce.
