If you are thinking about getting a divorce, and you want to pick the right divorce lawyer for you, you can “shop” until you feel comfortable with the divorce attorney you select to represent you. You want to pick a lawyer who understands what you are going through, has empathy for you and your situation, and is competent to see the matter through to resolution, whether that is by settlement or by trial.
You can interview or hold consultations with as many lawyers as you care to. But the REAL REASON for lawyer shopping is this: once a lawyer has spoken to you about your divorce case, this precludes that same lawyer and law firm from speaking to or representing your spouse. So the point of divorce lawyer shopping is to foreclose your spouse from hiring a really good lawyer who will work against you.
Many clients who have post dissolution matters wish that they could judge shop as well. That is not happening, as it is not possible to accomplish.
