I am trying to help my sister find a good divorce attorney in Marion. Any suggestions? Her husband is using Dewayne Verity. My husband and I are going to help her pay for it so we want somebody that is good. Thanks for the help.

She is off to a good start if HE is using Verity.

I'd try Michelle Schafer, Jerry Reed, or Mike Maurizio.

Jimani is absolutely correct! Him having Verity is an advantage for her. I hired him to do my divorce after he got my retainer he did nothing. After 6 months of not returning my calls and no paperwork had been done I fired him! I hired Schaefer and my divorce was final in 30 days. I hear he mostly represents his party buddies and girlfriends.

I used Jerry Reed. He did a fantastic job. He is very upfront in explaining the law to you. His fees are reasonable.

The best attorney? Is there any such thing? Have the divorcing couple sit their ass down and realize they dont need to pay someone to rip them off. Most attorneys are buddies behind the curtain. They act like they are fighting for you. Sure, there may be one here or there that does, but thats rare. The chances of you finding one are slim. If someone feels they 'won' then they will praise the attorney. The ones who feel they lost will not be happy with the attorney. Usually ends in a 50 percent like 50 percent dislike. Tell them to be mature and figure their shit out themselves and if there are kids involved, put them first. Dont pay those rat bastards any money for dragging their feet, while your bill racks up. Always makes me sick to hear people threatening others that their lawyer will kick the other lawyers butt...blah blah...when it comes down to it, both lawyers are kicking the crap out of their cleints...wow.. but if i have to recommend someone.. id recommend judge alex or judge judy.

Told like it is is exactly right. It boils down to the law is the law in a divorce. Child support is a certain percentage, if there is marital property either it is sold or one buys the other out, bills are split, visitation is set and that is pretty much it. There is rarely what used to be called alimony anymore (if it even exists at all). Nobody is going to kick anybody's butt. It is what it is and no more. I agree, figure it out draw up the papers from a model document you can get online. Call it a day and move one. Better on both of you and definately better on the kids! My ex wife and I did it cost us a $100 bucks!!

Well 2 people with no kids and no property that haven't been married long can get split on their own, But that is not for everybody. Ex client above says she got hers done in 30 days after she switched lawyers. The point is lawyers are just like everything else in that there are good and bad. Sister asked for a lawyer from Marion. I don't think Reed is from this county. That leaves Maurizio or Schafer from the list above.

Told like it is stated everything correctly! Try to do it all on your own. My attorney was Brad Olsen from Carterville, he was awesome. My ex started with Norma Miner and she was on my side more than the ex's. All that matter's is money, property and kids. Split everything yourself, be fair and move on. Save your money. As far as Jerry Reed, would'nt give you 2 cents for him either. Ex hired him after hiring Norma, fifnt do him any good!

I recommend Teresa Machicao-Hopkins. She is located off the square, across from library. She is known around courthouse as a bull dog.

Schafer, Reed, and Maurizio are good reccomendations, however as was posted above, Reed is from Jackson County, if you care, and Maurizio is retiring this year he says.

There used to be some real good attorneys from Benton that used to do a real good job and charged like next to nothing. I can not recall his name but did my divorce like in one day and only charged like $250. Child custody, child support, deeds to real estate and everything else included. We signed the papers and appeared in Court in Benton instead of Marion so the locals didn't even get to know my business.

Wow, "used to be", you sound like a bright one. "charged next to nothing" and you "cannot recall his name?" Maybe if you put the bottle down you could remember something..or at least be able to give an accurate response. Must have been one of many divorces for you. No wonder you cant find anyone to stay with your lame arse.
