I think when you’re hiring a divorce lawyer, the most important thing to consider is really a comfort level. I mean, most attorneys that you’re going to find – as long as you’re finding people that have been doing this for a long time, and specialize in the area – you really need to make sure that you’re comfortable speaking with them.

So, it really comes down to being able to feel comfortable, and being able to be honest with your attorney.
