NYPD, MTA and NYFD: The Boldest and Bravest Divorces Require an Experienced Attorney
Police officers, firefighters and MTA workers in New York deal with high-stress jobs every day of their lives. The prospect of going through a divorce on top of all those day-to-day worries can be understandably daunting. It is for this reason that it is so important that those workers focus specifically on choosing an experienced attorney to guide them through the process.
Experienced divorce lawyers have seen a wide variety of cases and have a grasp on the best tactics to use to get you the best results in your case, no matter the circumstances you’re facing. Here are just a few other tips to consider when selecting your divorce lawyer:
- Know your goals: What are your goals in your divorce—to get it over with as soon as possible, or to maximize your takeaway? Your goals will influence the kind of approach you’ll want to take, which will also influence which attorney will be best suited to represent you.
- Cast a broad net: Don’t be afraid to research a number of different attorneys, and narrow your choice down to three or four before you make your final decision.
- Talk to your potential attorneys: Before you make a decision, you should actually sit down and meet with your potential attorneys. This will give you an opportunity to learn about their experience, any specializations they might have, their fees, and the approaches they most prefer to take during the divorce process.
- Keep an eye out for warning signs: There are a variety of red flags you might notice during your search for an attorney. Never go with a lawyer who seems to be just telling you everything you want to hear so you’ll sign on the dotted line, or an attorney who guarantees specific results. The attorney should be respectful, realistic and completely honest and transparent with you.
