I agree with the previous reviewer that Brian Desautels is incompetent and I add, dishonest. He represented me in my divorce. I requested the financial statements again and again but never received any. He later lied that I received them but had no proof. His recordkeeping was very poor, his manners toward me, very bad: One day, I had a scheduled appointment with him and while he was meeting with me, someone showed up. He left me to meet with her. He went back and forth between the two of us then left me alone to wait in the room for an hour. I was going thru a divorce so I was not thinking straight. I did not want him to make my husband pay the bill since I had already paid him. On the day of the last hearing, he had my husband pay his bill anyway (a large amount that was never accounted for). I was too distraught to fight him and he told me it will take care of everything. After that, he sent me another large bill! After it was over, I filed formal complaints about him and he lied again and again. Someone who once worked for him told me "He lies a lot". He has had at least several formal complaints against him. He is very dishonest. If you hear his name, run!
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.
