Bertus Preller Shares Advice on How to Choose a Divorce Attorney

Everyone's Guide to Divorce and SeparationBertus Preller has written about how to choose a divorce attorney, advising people against cutthroat lawyers who are quick to litigate. He says to rather “search for an attorney who will represent your interests, whether that means fighting it out in court or making sure you get a fair settlement”.

Preller also shares advice on ways to limit the amount of legal fees you pay and lists The Law Society rules that attorneys are held to, as well as the responsibilities you have to your attorney:

Finding the right attorney can be a challenging exercise. There are many good and ethical divorce attorneys who would be happy to represent you, but there are also many who don’t keep up to date with the law, don’t care much about your personal needs and/or charge too much. No matter how straightforward your case, it will likely move faster and be easier if you have a competent attorney to oversee it from beginning to end.
