Ms. Trusler encourages those who are in the research phase of finding a qualified divorce attorney to first seek out any personal referrals from friends, co-workers, or acquaintances that have had a good experience with their particular divorce lawyer in the past. But when a personal referral isn’t available, she encourages them to next check online to find more information about potential options in their local area.
“Those looking for a divorce attorney can find most of what they need to know simply by doing a few online searches,” Ms. Trusler said. “In addition to looking through the website of particular divorce attorneys, it’s also wise to do searches for their particular name to find reviews on third party websites as well as information about their legal background and education.”
For those in Texas looking for a qualified divorce attorney, Ms. Trusler encourages them to seek out those professionals who are Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Lawyers who are Board Certified in Texas have been recognized as having extensive experience in a specific legal field. Of more than 70,000 attorneys who are licensed to practice in the State of Texas, only 773 are active and Board Certified in Family Law. Attorneys Board Certified in Family Law are experts in marriage, adoption, divorce, custody, support and ownership of property acquired before and during marriage.
The next step after finding a qualified legal professional according to Ms. Trusler is to then schedule an initial consultation, which is not only beneficial for the lawyer to get an overview of the potential case, but also for the client to determine if the lawyer they have chosen is a good fit for their personality. While most board certified divorce attorneys don’t offer free initial consultations, many may offer discounted rates. Ms. Trusler also encourages people to ask about the possibility of phone, Skype, or FaceTime consultations for clients who may have travel or time constraints.
Overall, Trusler encourages clients to be as educated as possible about the divorce process.
“In my experience, I’ve found that educated clients are the happiest clients even in a tough situation,” said Ms. Trusler. Knowing more about the process and understanding how it works leads to clients having less anxiety and overall, having more satisfaction about the outcome of their divorce.”
