Don’t Hire Us
• Don’t hire us if you have a bad credit report; and low assets; and low income; and no Guarantor. If you are trying to get a champagne divorce on a beer income, we are not the right attorneys for you. A good divorce is expensive but you get what you pay for with us. It sometimes costs our clients $20,000 or more for complicated cases having a lot of assets. It sometimes costs our clients $2,500 or less for an Uncontested Divorce. Either way, we need to be paid with retainers in advance; otherwise, we are loaning money to clients that is hard to collect. When we spend time and money on collections, that unfairly detracts us from serving our paying clients.
• Don’t hire us if you have a weak or unethical position and want a Miscreant Lawyer that will do anything and say anything to try to help you win. Such lawyers are often successful only in driving up the cost of litigation.
• If you are vengeful, spiteful, and want to punish your “ex” instead of reaching an equitable divorce.
• If you arbitrarily want and expect all or most of the marital assets.
• If you want to keep your “ex” from seeing the children without valid cause such as child abuse or unfit parenting.
• If you want a lawyer that will tell you what you want to hear which only feeds a destructive fire.
