Who Is the Best Utah Petition to Modify Attorney?

When people search on the internet for divorce attorneys, they often type in something like “best utah petition to modify attorney” or “best utah divorce attorney.”

The results that pop up on Google usually pop up because a page on a website contains the words “best” “utah” “petition to modify” and “attorney” in close proximity. So, you’re not really getting an assessment of who is the best attorney at all. What you’re getting is an attorney who wrote the phrase “best utah petition to modify attorney” on his or her webpage.

So, how do you determine who is the best divorce and petition to modify attorney in Utah? The answer to this question is pretty personal and depends on some different factors. Let me address a few as I see them.


  1. Fit.

What I mean by fit is how you and your attorney get along. You can have the most brilliant attorney in the world (and there are some amazingly brilliant attorneys), but if you can’t stand to be in the same room with him or her, all that brilliance won’t get you good results. Find someone you get along with and with whom you feel comfortable working.

  1. Focus on your area of need.

If you have an intellectual property issue, don’t hire a divorce/petition to modify attorney. Likewise, if you have a divorce issue, don’t hire someone who does ten divorce cases per year. If you hire a part-time divorce/petition to modify attorney, you’ll get part-time results. Find a full-time divorce attorney.

  1. Online reviews.

Online reviews are helpful (but not sufficient) in choosing an attorney. If you approach them correctly, they can help guide you to attorneys who provide good customer service. And good customer service is not the norm among attorneys, unfortunately. (For help evaluating online reviews, read here.)

  1. Reputation with colleagues and the courts.

If an attorney is disliked by his or her colleagues and the courts, then you will have an uphill climb in your case. It will be harder to negotiate, and the courts are less likely to accept arguments from an attorney with a bad reputation.

  1. Price.

Price is always a consideration. If an attorney charges more than you could possibly afford, then it won’t do you much good to hire that attorney. This said, hiring an attorney who undercharges for legal services is an indication that attorney is inexperienced.

In the end, realize legal services are an investment in your future and your family’s future. Plan accordingly, and find a good attorney who will charge fairly.

  1. Feel.

Feel is a bit like fit. You have to feel comfortable with your attorney. You have to feel that your attorney is knowledgeable and will represent you with respect in and out of the courtroom.

So, Who Is the Best Utah Petition to Modify Attorney?

Considering all of this, who is the best Utah petition to modify attorney?

The answer is: it depends on you.

It depends on your situation and who you feel you fit with best. Google can’t make this decision for you. Your sister can’t make that decision for you. You have to do the research and make the determination for yourself. There are no shortcuts in hiring a good attorney.
