When people are going through a divorce, they often have an idea of the best possible outcome that benefits them. Unfortunately, some lawyers are ready to tell you exactly what you want to hear and assure you that you’ll obtain monetary or legal compensation if you hire them.
A lawyer should be telling you what you NEED to hear, not what you WANT to hear.
I’ve had potential clients who are on their fifth attorney consult with me. Their first attorney often told them a mistruth about their case. The attorney gave untruthful statements and confirmations simply because they were what the potential client wanted to hear. Consequently, mistruths told by a trusted professional are generally ingrained in a client's head. Even after the client terminates that first attorney, he or she may still retain that misconception, holding on to the slight possibility of it being true.
Mistruths fuel unrealistic expectations & prolong your case.
Eventually, these mistruths erode the attorney/client relationship and may even erode the relationship you had with your soon-to-be ex-spouse.
A good lawyer will give you a realistic assessment of how your case is progressing. Prior to hiring an attorney, he or she will advise you about potential outcomes based on the factual evidence surrounding your situation.
Attorneys who try to butter you up just to secure you as a client, are wasting your time and money. If the situation looks too picture-perfect, then it probably is.
