The 9 Most Expensive Cities For Getting A Divorce

Divorce lawyer Spencer WilliamsBusiness Insider consulted with the divorce lawyers of Cordell & Cordell for analysis of “The 9 Most Expensive Cities For Getting A Divorce,” which it calculated based on the average rate for divorce attorneys in cities across the country.
