I used Margaret Bartton for my divorce in 1987-1988 and also for an emergency custody hearing for my son a few years later. I would and will use her again if I ever need an attorney. She did an excellent job for me. I will never forget this years back someone told me about her and it was another attorney but he did not do divorces. He said this " she is no nonsense" and will get the job done. My ex husbands attorney was a high profile attorney and also his mothers boyfriend. I knew I had to have someone good that could stand up to him and she did and did the job quite well. Thanks Margaret Denise Miller

I'd like to thank you for your diligence, dedication and hard work in representing us during this ordeal over the last 5 years, as well as for your work with my father prior to his death. While I certainly wish this process could have been simpler and easier ( due to the way my mother is, it couldnt be), having you as an advocate was a huge advantage for myself and Nick, and we certainly appreciate having you there with us. I wish you the best, both professionally and more importantly, personally.

I can never ever thank Margaret for all you did for Charles. There are no words to describe my pain at losing him after Ithought we were through the darkest party of our journey together. I take comfort in the knowledge that he had you and I as support through the divorce.

My experience with Margaret Barton was very comforting. She gave me help and support when I was so lost. She is an incredible woman and attorney and I am lucky to have her in my life.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
