Alan Connell, in Thomaston, Ga. did a great job for me and is just an all around great person. And yes, I just said that about an attorney.

This is a myth. No attorney/client relationship is formed during a consultation, and every half-decent attorney will make that very clear to you (a) because he/she is ethically required to and (b) so that he/she doesn't inadvertently close the door to other business if you don't hire them.

Some of the best divorce attorneys seem to always be women.

The legal term is called “Conflicting them out”...... it is actually taught in some legal strategy classes, in most law schools. It’s done all the time in a myriad of legal conflicts. Very effective too!

Except just having a conversation with a lawyer will not conflict that lawyer out of anything. You have to establish an attorney-client relationship, and even then the client has to provide privileged information that could then create a conflict. Do you think any lawyer would risk being conflicted out of a matter if that could be done through a simple conversation with a person who has no intention of signing an engagement agreement? Of course not. The ethical rules are set up in a way that allows conversations to happen so that people can freely choose their own lawyer, and so a lawyer can screen potential (actual) conflicts. Once you sign an engagement letter, it's game on, but talking to every lawyer in town as a "strategy" to conflict other lawyers out is nothing but a waste of time.

you just have to pay for one confidential visit. In small towns it happens all the time.

Another myth that I disproved several times. The ones I found were good at spending the retainer and accomplishing nothing, letting you talk and vent...while eating up billable hours. The best ones were the old experienced men that were matter of fact and just plain got the job done, didn't want to hear all of the meaningless petty BS that did nothing to help your case. (That men going through a nasty divorce want to talk about for no good reason.)
