What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Sometimes, the most popular attorneys might not be the best attorney for your situation. Here are 4 steps in considering the right attorney:
1. Visit the law firmÂs Web site and do a web search of the attorney. Determine the location and if it is convenient for you and to the Courthouse. Does the attorney seem accessible? Are the phone numbers, email addresses, and other contact methods active and reliable?
2. Read the Âattorney profileÂ on the firmÂs Web site to gauge experience, expertise, and personality. Personality can be very important to a healthy relationship between you and your lawyer.
3. Ask for a confidential consultation, possibly with more than one attorney. What questions do you have? Does the attorney seem like someone you can work with successfully?
4. Based on your investigations, which attorney will efficiently, respectfully, and aggressively assert your rights and interests?
