Lawyer referring to other lawyer?

Find a divorce lawyer in Illinois can be challenging. I know that many people are referred to lawyers by their friends and family, and sometimes by other lawyers.

But one thing I’ve found – from hiring lawyers myself – is that some referrals aren’t worth anything at all.

If you are referred to a lawyer, the person referring you might have a hidden agenda. For example, the person doing the referring might get compensated for doing so. Or, maybe the referral is a more honest one, but not useful. For example, a person may refer you to a lawyer because he or she hired that lawyer and was pleased with the outcome. But what if that case was nothing like yours? What if the judge was different than in your case? What if the lawyer in that other case was terribly incompetent?

One lawyer that I would refer my friends and family to is divorce lawyer Rhonda Stuart. Why would I recommend her?

  1. Value: She has the skill of attorneys that charge in excess of $400 per hour and hang original artwork on the walls of their Loop offices
  2. Experience: She has taken numerous cases to trial – and not just in family law. Sometimes, it’s good to have an attorney that can go the distance
  3. Principled: I see invoices from many law firms. One I recently saw showed that paralegal was billing at $175 per hour. The paralegal probably takes home a max of $30 per hour. So you can see that some lawyers can make a lot of money of billing out their paralegals. If they are not principled, that can be an unfortunately large expense, and unnecessary.
  4. Strategic: Some attorneys may pursue cases in a robotic fashion. Divorce lawyer Rhonda Stuart will have strategic discussions with her clients. I’ve personally witness her strategies score major wins for her clients.

I have this website in the hopes that potential clients will choose me to represent them. But if you don’t choose me, family law attorney Rhonda Stuart would be a great choice. She practice in Chicago, Skokie, Evanston and the Illinois counties of Cook, DuPage, Lake, and Will.
