Whether you or your spouse has already filed for divorce, or you’re thinking about starting the divorce process, you probably already know you need a lawyer. However, hiring just any law firm can be a big mistake. That’s because not all law firms are created equal, especially when assisting during divorce cases.

If you’re looking for a lawyer or law firm to represent you in your divorce, look for these five traits.

1. Decades of Experience

Compared to other types of legal cases, divorce and its points of contention (money, assets, children, etc.) may seem straightforward and predictable. But in reality, every divorce case is different. Divorce lawyers must have years of experience analyzing and succeeding in many different cases and scenarios to get the best possible result for their clients.

At Inman, Stadler & Hill, we have more than three decades of combined experience and the knowledge and resources to handle all types of divorce cases—and any curveballs that happen along the way.

2. A Strong Commitment to All Cases, Regardless of Size

Some law firms and attorneys are only interested in big paydays. They may take smaller cases but don’t give them the same level of attention, care, and dedication as bigger cases with higher payouts.

Our firm believes there are no small cases. Every case, no matter how much money or assets are at stake, is monumentally important to the people who trust us to be their legal representation.

3. Compassion for Clients

Even law firms with years of experience and dedication to their clients lack one important trait: compassion. Divorce consistently ranks as one of life’s most difficult, stressful, and even traumatic experiences—even for people who initiate it.

When choosing a divorce lawyer or law firm, finding one who has compassion for you and your family is important. Even amicable divorces can present many emotional challenges, and lawyers must understand those challenges and help their clients handle them as they arise.

4. An Aggressive Approach

Divorce cases have a lot on the line, and when you hire a lawyer, you want someone to protect your rights. And because your spouse also likely has their own lawyer, you need experienced legal representation that’s aggressive enough to stand up for you every step of the way.

The Tennessee divorce lawyers at Inman, Stadler & Hill are proactive about every aspect of our clients’ cases. We know that the outcome of their divorce proceedings can have huge impacts on their lives (and the lives of their children), and we strive to stay one step ahead of the opposition from the moment we start building cases.

5. Positive Reviews

It’s one thing for attorneys and law firms to brag about themselves. But their opinions of their work don’t matter nearly as much as those of the people they’ve represented.

Before you hire a divorce lawyer, be sure to check their reviews, testimonials, and recognition. High-quality firms are always looking for ways to improve their knowledge, client service, and results, and their hard work reflects in the outcomes they achieve for their clients.
