4 tips to choose a good lawyer

It should give you enough generic information.
Firstly, when you meet with a lawyer, he or she must give you an overview of how the procedure is going to proceed, i. e. how long it will take to file the complaint, how long it usually takes to receive a response, where the process will take place, how long it usually takes, what the applicable regulations are, what is the expected outcome... etc.
This does not mean that I have to go into too many details, but rather to give you an overview that clears up the great doubts that anyone has at first.

Firstly, when you meet with a lawyer, he or she must give you an overview of how the procedure is going to proceed, i. e. how long it will take to file the complaint, how long it usually takes to receive a response, where the process will take place, how long it usually takes, what the applicable regulations are, what is the expected outcome... etc.
This does not mean that I have to go into too many details, but rather to give you an overview that clears up the great doubts that anyone has at first.Of course, it must be made clear that the lawyer in Barcelona cannot foresee the future, and therefore can not guarantee in any way how things are going to turn out, but he can tell you how they usually happen according to his experience, that is, if this lawyer has enough experience, he will not hesitate to give you time limits and approximations, although logically he will always be conservative.Don't trust a too optimistic lawyer either, judgments are known how they start but not how they end, and no matter how easy it may seem at first, experience tells us that it is possible that it will be complicated later, so even if you are told that there is a good chance of success, you must also be informed of the risks, every side has its cross, and all legal proceedings have risks.You must understand what he says.
Make sure you understand all the information, that is, don't be afraid to sin as ignorant, you don't get divorced every day and therefore you don't have to know anything at all. The good lawyer is one who presumes that the client understands nothing, and therefore strives to explain legal issues in a way that everyone can understand.If it turns out that the client has legal knowledge and therefore can speak with a more technical language, the client will let him/her know, but the presumption must always be that the client does not know anything basic, otherwise we risk that the client for shame of not wanting to appear ignorant, simulates to understand what is being said, when in reality does not do so.As in all professions, lawyers have their own professional jargon, and if they use it and surround themselves, most of the time, with people related to the world of law, there comes a time when they forget that the ordinary citizen does not understand that language.When that happens, it is because the lawyer does not have enough empathy to put himself in the client's shoes and change the language by adapting it to the personal circumstances of each one. For example, you can't speak the same to a young person as to an older person, or to a person with a higher level of education than someone with a lower level, or to a person who speaks Spanish as a native language, or to someone who speaks Spanish as a second language... etc. It's the lawyer who has to adapt to you, and not the other way around.It should build your confidence.
This is an absolutely indispensable element in the lawyer-client relationship. The lawyer has to advise you on very important issues that directly affect your current life and your future, he has to indicate the most appropriate way to achieve your goals, and he will design a strategy tailored for you, but it is very important that you and your lawyer and client go together throughout the process and you both agree.When that doesn't happen, that is, the lawyer goes on one side and the client on the other, there is a mutual boycott, and the lawyer will not be able to do his job properly and you will be uncomfortable, and that will result in your injury. Lawyer and client must be a team, work together, and trust each other fully.And if your current lawyer doesn't give you full confidence, don't be afraid to change it, there's nothing wrong with that, you're not going to offend the first lawyer, it's normal, and you're not telling him or her that it's not good, just that there hasn't been any chemistry between you.Make sure he has experience.
While trust is very important, so is the fact that your lawyer has extensive experience in handling divorces. General attorneys are fine for minor and less complex matters, but a lack of experience and accurate knowledge of the matter can cause them to make mistakes and damage your case.
