What you Should Expect from a Clearwater Divorce Attorney
If you are in Clearwater and are thinking about filing for divorce, finding a best divorce attorney for your case is important. The obvious fact is that not all divorce lawyers operate in a similar manner and hiring the wrong Clearwater divorce attorney can change the outcome of your case. We believe the experienced legal team at Ayo and Iken can provide superior service at this critical time in your life. Here are some things you should consider:
1. No attorney can ever promise a specific outcome
It is easy for some attorneys to give you a guarantee of a certain outcome. That is a powerful way to generate business. But attorneys do not make the final decision and it is impossible to accurately predict the exact outcome. Also, attorneys are forbidden by ethical rules from giving such a guarantee. If your attorney gives you a guarantee, the Bar considers them unethical and deceptive. At Ayo and Iken we strictly adhere to ethical rules. We also give you the basic thing that everyone expects: the truth ! We never sugar coat the truth. You need accurate information and advice so you can make crucial decisions about your case.
2. The attorney cannot work on contingency
The Florida Bar prohibits family law attorneys from working on contingency. It creates a conflict of interest, and it is against the rules. There are some rare circumstances where a contingency case in family law is permissible. But the exceptions are few and far in between.
3. A lawyer should be readily available to answer questions about divorce in Clearwater
A good attorney gives you a “sample” of their knowledge. That is critical to helping you select the best Clearwater Divorce Attorney for your particular situation. Ayo and Iken attorneys give hard-hitting information. You can be assured the initial consultation is a “warm-up” to doing what we do best: represent your best interests.
4. Be wary of attorneys who only handle uncontested divorces
When the going gets tough – the tough get going. The fact is that uncontested divorces do blow up sometimes. A good negotiator is a tough trial lawyer. Don’t hire the wrong attorney just because you think your case is uncontested. We handle the full range of cases – from friendly cases, to high conflict cases. That is our job and that is what we enjoy doing.
