The truth is that there are only a few family lawyers with over 10 years of experience in British Columbia. Law Society rules prohibit any law firm from saying they are the best.
But to make your search easier, we put together a list of tips for how to find the best divorce lawyer for you in BC.
Things to look for in a divorce law firm:
Great communication. Don’t expect to hear back within a few hours, but you should hear back within 24 hours. Therefore, see how long it takes a lawyer to get back to you BEFORE hiring them.
Family law experience. Don’t hire a lawyer that does many different kinds of law. A lawyer should focus on one or two areas of law, maximum. Don’t hire a real estate lawyer for a family law matter.
Uses advanced technology. Lawyers with a terrible website probably don’t understand technology. The lawyer is most likely not innovative. If it takes them a long time to figure something out, because they don’t use technology, you are paying them per hour.
Honest billing. Some lawyers charge premium rates, which really means they bill whatever they feel like. It is the personal belief of our CEO, Alistair Vigier, that this is extremely dishonest and should not be allowed.
Excellent review online. Have a look at the reviews for the different lawyers at the law firm.
