Here are a few tips to finding a Chicago divorce lawyer.

  • What happens during your consultation: If a lawyer doesn’t give you any insight, he or she might not be the one for you.
  • Does the lawyer tell you what you want to hear: Don’t hire someone who just tells you what you want to hear. Often, both people in a divorce feel as though they lost. Hire someone who is realistic.
  • What are you big issues? In the presidential election, winning Ohio was a major goal for both candidates. This is a good lesson for those in divorce. Don’t get lost in the minutia, keep focus on the major issues.
