Be sure you feel comfortable with your divorce attorney

Choosing an attorney is like choosing a doctor. If he or she fails to listen to one's needs and desires, a Connecticut resident could end up worse off than he or she was before. When one is getting a divorce, this could be a disaster financially and as a parent.

One issue that some Connecticut residents have with their attorneys is that they do not feel comfortable divulging personal and intimate information. When it comes to divorce, this is often a prerequisite for beginning the process. Therefore, an individual needs to find someone with whom he or she feels comfortable enough with to have an uncomfortable conversation.

Communication needs to be clear between a client and attorney in order for the relationship to work well. If an individual feels as though the attorney is just not understanding what is needed, then it may not be a good fit. In addition, if the client does not deal well with the attorney's routine method of communication, an issue could arise. Like with any other relationship, the one between an attorney and a client is based on mutual respect and trust. The client trusts the attorney to remain on top of his or her case, and the attorney trusts that the client is being honest and understands that no outcome can be guaranteed.

When a Connecticut resident needs an attorney to assist with a divorce, that relationship should not be a tense one. As an individual goes through the process of dividing the marital estate and determining custody for the children, it often helps to know that an experienced advocate is in his or her corner. This relationship may only last for a time, but it is an important one that needs to work well in order to ensure that the best outcome possible is achieved.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
