How Can I Reduce Legal Fees?
Lowering Divorce Legal Fees
One of the questions we enjoy answering is when clients want to know how they can reduce their legal fees. Now that’s true, even though we're lawyers. We believe you should get a return on every dollar you spend. Your legal fees shouldn’t be an expense — you should consider them an investment. And you want a return on every single dollar that you invest.
So, how are some ways that you can reduce your legal fees?
First, pick your battles with your spouse.
You don’t want to make every issue something that’s World War III. Also, maintain a list of questions to ask your lawyer and consolidate them. Instead of having a question, picking up the phone and calling and having a 5-minute conversation—and doing that 3 or 4 times a week—you’re best to put together a list and, once a week, have a 10-or 15-minute conversation, but have all of your questions together. You can also do the same thing by reducing it to email.
