Tip 3 – Verify the attorney’s experience with the state bar association.

When picking the right divorce lawyer to represent you, it’s extremely helpful to double check an attorney’s experience and credentials with the state bar association.

When picking the right divorce lawyer to represent you, it’s extremely helpful to double check an attorney’s experience and credentials with the state bar association.

What a person may tell you – or what their website may state – can be very different from the facts, so it’s typically a smart idea to double check what you are told regarding an attorney’s experience when you are going through the process of picking the right divorce lawyer for your case.

To do this, contact the state bar association (by phone or via their website) to verify that the attorney you are considering:

  • Is licensed to practice law in the state of Colorado (i.e., has passed the Colorado bar exam)
  • Has experience handling family law cases.

As you check these factors with the state bar association, you can also determine whether an attorney you may be considering has:

  • Any official censures or complaints filed against him or her (This can be giant red flag when you are picking the right divorce lawyer to handle your case.)
  • The accolades and awards (s)he may claim to have. 

Tip 4 – Check out testimonials and reviews from former clients.

After you’ve verified that an attorney has the experience and licensing he claims to have, as you move through the process of picking the right divorce lawyer, the next step that can be helpful in this process is reading testimonials and reviews that former clients have posted online about this attorney.

A good place to start is the divorce lawyer’s website, where a respected and skilled attorney may post positive reviews from former clients. Read through these to see what people’s experiences have been with this lawyer.

It’s important to note, however, that this should not be the only place you look for reviews for a particular attorney when you are working on picking the right divorce lawyer for you. Instead, take about 10 or so more minutes to look for former client reviews and testimonials on third-party sites like Google Local Business or Thumbtack or any other place online that contains review. These sites can offer a more well-rounded view of what you can expect if you end up moving forward with a particular divorce attorney.
