How to Hire a Good Divorce Lawyer (getting enrolled)

Are you one of the people who visit and read (or watch and listen too) but who isn’t “enrolled” who isn’t “invested” in actually hiring me as your lawyer?

If you’ve studiously gone through this website, if you read over the hundreds of blog posts I’ve personally written (and keeping writing) on virtually every Utah divorce and family law issue under the sun and still remain unsure, well then it’s likely you’re not actually convinced you should hire me to help you. What you are enrolled in is vicariously experiencing. You’re enrolled in learning about me (and divorce lawyers generally), but not actually hiring me as your lawyer to help you. There is nothing wrong with this step. It’s a first step, a necessary first step. It’s a risk-free step.

But it’s clearly not the last or most important step; that step is hiring the lawyer.

If you know you need a lawyer, or even if you are fairly certain that you need a lawyer, but you’re holding back, I understand. If you’re not sure whether you need a lawyer at all, I understand.

Allow me to give you the encouragement you seek: it is true that hiring a good lawyer, the right lawyer for you, is almost always a bargain, something that’s worth a lot more than you pay. I hope that with this website and its content I have helped you see why and how.

If you are afraid to share your concerns with me because you’re afraid they will offend me, fear not. You have every reason to be skeptical. I’m happy to audition for this part. I’m happy to apply for this job. I am not a high-pressure salesman. I can’t be. And it’s not your “fault” if you don’t hire me, it’s your choice.

If you are afraid to share your concerns with me because you don’t want to admit that you’re poor or ignorant or both, fear not. Even my clients who are lawyers don’t understand how divorce law works.

And with very few exceptions, nobody has money to burn on a divorce lawyer. While you and I know that you should never shop on price alone, price is a major factor. I’m not insulted if you want to discuss it. I’m happy to explain how my pricing works. I’m happy to justify my fees to you.

Call me and schedule an hour to meet and talk with me over lunch. Let me hear your story, let me learn your needs and wants. Let’s get to know each other better.

I don’t want to be your lawyer unless you believe A) I can help you, and B) that I should be your lawyer for that reason. I don’t want to be your lawyer unless you believe what you’ll end up paying me is worth it. Once you believe that (because you conclude you have good reason to believe it), you will be invested in my success as well as yours, and I can be a lot more helpful to you.
