A Cheap Divorce is Not Worth It

There is a judge's gavel on top of a legal book titled consumer protection which a cheap divorce cannot offer.Money is an important factor whenever you work with a professional. When you go through a divorce, your money and time can get even tighter. Hiring a cheap lawyer to handle your case could be attractive. However, they will end up letting you down. Keep reading to learn more about the difference between a cheap and quality attorney.

Cheap Lawyers are Inexperienced

A lawyer might have an attractive hourly rate, but not know what to look for in your case. They may not have seen particular motions brought forward and thus not know how to counter them. Their inadequacy could end up losing you important aspects of your case. 

Quality Attorney Solution: Gain greater legal insights. Attorneys that cost more per hour typically have more experience and skill running and winning cases. They will know what approaches and opportunities to take and those to ignore. 

Cheap Lawyers are Distracted

Due to their lower hourly rate, cheaper lawyers usually need to take on more clients. When they get overwhelmed with cases, the chances of a mistake go up. The more cases they have floating around their mind and office, the less reliable their decision-making on your case will become. Their communication will be sporadic and distracted. 

Quality Attorney Solution: Focus on your individual needs. Quality attorneys have the experience to know their caseload limit as well as how to manage communication. Their elevated communication will help set you up, so you know what you need to do and can anticipate the next steps. Efficient communication will mean fewer billable hours and money back in your pocket. 

Cheap Lawyers are Inefficient

Attorneys from smaller firms who try to take on all the work themselves end up working inefficiently. They do all the work instead of delegating portions to junior staff members. For you, that means your casework will take longer and be more expensive. 

Quality Attorney Solution: Working with a team. Quality legal firms will use paralegals and aids strategically to spend money by assigning specific casework to the least expensive yet qualified legal worker. This process allows you, the client to maintain the experienced oversight of a quality attorney while getting the perks of a lower hourly rate.
