My Lawyer Insists We Go To Trial, But My Spouse And I Have Worked Out A Settlement In Our Brooklyn Divorce. What Should I Do?

First, you should learn why your lawyer is so convinced that your case should go to trial.

If they believe that the settlement you’ve negotiated is unbalanced or lopsided in your spouse’s favor, they may be giving you good advice.

If you’ve heard them out and want to proceed with the settlement anyway, but your lawyer is resisting your settlement agreement, you may need to hire a new attorney.

What to look for when wanting to hire a new attorney

You have the right to change attorneys during your divorce, and not seeing eye to eye on how it should proceed is a common reason that clients and attorneys part ways.

Most divorce lawyers offer free consultations that give you a chance to interview them, talk through the issues in your divorce, and see both how your personalities match and the quality of initial advice they can provide.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we know that lawyers and clients have to be on the same side for a case to work out for the best.

We welcome free, introductory calls so you can get a feel for who you’re dealing with, and whether they can represent you appropriately.

Call us today at 718-725-9601 for a free, no obligation consultation with an experienced Brooklyn divorce lawyer.
