You want to know the following about a good legal aid divorce attorney:
Does he or she look down on you?
A good legal aid divorce attorney will certainly not look down on you. People can go to legal aid for all sorts of reasons and that is no basis for anyone to judge or look down on someone. If the legal aid divorce attorney does not understand that, you should reassess whether he or she is suitable for you.
Does he or she spend adequate time and effort on your case?
A good legal aid divorce attorney will spend just as much time and effort on your case as on a non-legally aided case. This is because the time and effort required for a case depend on the case, not on whether or not the client is legally aided.
Does he or she genuinely try to settle the case for you?
A good legal aid divorce attorney will try to achieve a settlement for you (that is acceptable to you). This is so even though you may be supported by legal aid (which is no reason not to settle).
Does he or she try to expeditiously resolve the case for you?
Of course, your lawyer will also be handling other cases at the same time. However, just because you are on legal aid is not a reason (in and of itself) for your case to be delayed.
Does he or she advise you fully on your options and also the pros and cons of each option?
A good legal aid divorce attorney will do just that: advise you on your options and for each option, the pros and cons, so that you can decide how to proceed with the case. This is what a good divorce attorney does and a good legal aid divorce attorney would do the same for you.
