Very often, when we are looking for a professional such as a lawyer, we will rely on recommendations from our friends.
These are some tips on how to find a recommended divorce lawyer in Singapore.
Ask your friend why exactly he or she is recommending that lawyer
It is important to ask your friend for his or her reasons for recommending the recommended divorce lawyer to you.
Sometimes, our friends will recommend someone by saying that the lawyer is good or even excellent.However, this is too general for you to understand or appreciate in what way the lawyer is good or excellent.
Ensure that the reason he or she is recommending that lawyer is relevant to your case
Clearly, it is important, for someone who is a recommended divorce lawyer is recommended for something that is relevant to your case.
Even within divorce itself, there can be sub-specializations that may not be relevant to your case.For example, someone who is very empathetic, caring and helpful may specialize as a mediator when what you need is a recommended divorce lawyer who handles a lot of contested divorce cases.
Ask your friend whether or not he or she would go back to her recommended divorce lawyer or not
This is another important question to ask and follow up on.
If the answer is no, then, why not?Get a description of how the recommended divorce lawyer handled your friends' case.
Ask your friend whether or not he or she had any concerns at all about the recommended divorce lawyer
Sometimes, matters that do not matter so much to your friend may matter a lot to you.
For example, your friend's language skills may be better than yours and you may not feel as comfortable as your friend with the level of communication with the recommended divorce lawyer.
Check with your friend whether or not you can mention his or her name to the recommended divorce lawyer
First of all, you should not do so unless your friend is agreeable (and if your friend is not agreeable, you should ask why not).
Doing so after getting your friend's permission may help the recommended divorce lawyer understand your case and its background better (if it were similar to your friend's case).
