Three Tips for Hiring the Right Divorce Attorney

There are always a few standard key players in the divorce process, namely the two spouses and the children, if they had any. However, in almost every divorce story, there is another, less-frequently discussed character who can severely impact the proceedings: the attorney. When you decide to file for divorce, it’s critical that you avoid making the mistake of thinking that any attorney will do. Many lawyers who insist they can handle your divorce, even though they have no experience in the area, often lack both the wisdom to concede certain points and the guts to stand their ground.

The fact is that divorce lawyers are a breed all their own. Before choosing an attorney, keep the following things in mind:

Hire to Compete

Whether you’re anticipating an amicable divorce or an acrimonious divorce, you need a lawyer who can be firm enough to vigorously represent your interests. At the end of the day, this isn’t a marriage; it’s a divorce, and things can get ugly and confusing very quickly. Be sure you have a lawyer who can roll with the punches and, if needed, punch back twice as hard.


You need a divorce lawyer with both flexibility and experience. The fact is that no two divorces are exactly the same and you’d do well to hire an attorney who has “seen it all.” With this experience will invariably come an ability to adapt and prepare for the twists and turns that are so common in many divorces.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions

The last thing you want to do is be trapped in another failed partnership. This is why it’s important to ask preliminary questions before signing a letter of agreement with an attorney. Be sure to verify their track record and talk to them about what they’ve been able to do for their other clients.

Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
Ron is an extremely trustworthy lawyer. Listen to what he says and have faith in him, you will be as impressed as I am! I couldn't have dreamed of a better outcome in my case. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to represent me, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing lawyer!!
His staff is amazing as well!!
