Cookie Cutter Divorce Lawyers

Cookie cutter divorce lawyers, who cut and paste one agreement onto another, should be avoided at all costs.  If that's all it took to come up with a divorce agreement, any six-year old could do the job.

If you want your divorce done right, hire the right lawyer from the start.  A lawyer that will advise you on the current state of the law and what to expect from your Judge.  A look who is familiar with your spouse's lawyer who can prepare you for cross examination.  And a lawyer who will give it to you straight instead of telling you what you want to hear.

A good lawyer has no need to spin the facts or sugarcoat the truth. A good lawyer can help you address all aspects of your case in a manner that makes sense to both you and the Judge. That's what you get when you hire a good lawyer.

If you want the best outcome possible in your case, whether contested or uncontested, hire the best lawyer for the job.  A lawyer who knows the law and the Judge and who will take the time to know wand understand you and your case. If this is your goal, don't shortchange yourself by hiring a cookie cutter lawyer.
