FLORIDA: Divorce lawyers in Florida can’t get divorce clients as recession rages on

THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION is reporting that divorce lawyers in Florida have seen a marked decrease in divorce cases and this is hurting their bottom line tremendously. Business, according to the Journal report, is down as much as 35% for some solo practitioners. That means they now have to come up with creative ways to make a buck, including accepting credit card payments, offer sliding scales, or offer huge discounts in their rates. Some also may waive the consultation fee or offer payment plans that include paying a portion up front and taking a risk by having clients pay on the back end after the case is completed. What else can they do in this slim pickins economy?
