Murphy Law Firm
Promised me the moon, cost me 10k more than quoted me and took 4 mo longer than said it would. Beware unlimited talk, text, emails, they're only for you. She charges for all others. If you have a property to sell, sell after your case is settled or proceeds will be commendeered and controlled by attorney. They canceled my court dates 3x without my knowledge. Suspect she did this to keep me paying since she had control of my money from a sale. All court filing/processing/serving fees are additional. Only contacted apposing attorney when I asked where we were with the case. And don't let them schedule you at 2pm. They will rush you so they can be out the door by 3 and they were never ready so had only a few minutes to read and sign docs. They gave me docs for another case. I probably would have come out much better if I had done it myself. Sure would have saved me 18k.
Tips & Advices
Outside of separation and asset questions, divorce attorneys can also help with things like custody claims and anticipation of potential legal issues with the divorce. Divorces can become drawn-out affairs, and even when settled, can factor into other family decisions.
Yes, proceedings having to do with custody claims are among the main legal themes divorce attorneys deal with. Attorneys can help settle visitation schedules, as well as litigate on your behalf if these conditions are not met on the other side of the divorce.
Be prepared to bring documentation such as previous tax filings, bank statements, proof of marital and work status, prenuptial agreements (if applicable), and any paperwork related to assets and property.
Searching online for reputed and local divorce attorneys is one of the easiest and most common ways to find representation. Other actions include soliciting referrals or searching for candidates through attorney organizations, like the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
Questions to ask include those related to: fee structures; anticipated amount of personal participation; the attorney's experience and specialties as they pertain to your case; the expected timeline; and what follow-up actions will be needed. If complications ensue with the divorce, some clients prefer to work with the same attorney, making follow-ups all the more important.
