Hiring a lawyer can be one of the most important decisions you ever make. If you need one, then something happened that could put your life, liberty, property or all of the above in jeopardy.
Here are a few questions we think you should ask when choosing an attorney:
1. Do you give out your cell phone number to clients?
A good attorney who cares about your case wants you to be able to reach them whenever you need to.
2. How many times have you gone to trial?
Many attorneys will tell you that most cases don’t go to trial. While this is true, if the other side knows that your lawyers isn’t a trial lawyer, then he or she won’t have any leverage to get YOU the best deal possible.
3. Will there be any other attorneys in your office helping on my case? Can I meet them?
You might think you’re getting the whole firm behind you when you hire one of them to represent you, but take the time to make sure! If your attorney’s associates won’t take the time to meet you they definitely won’t be there later when you need them the most!
4. How much time can I expect to spend at your office getting ready for the case?
Too often a person hires an attorney and then is completely out of the loop the rest of the case. It’s your case, make sure you’re going to be involved! You want an attorney who will take the time to hear your side of the story.
5. What sort of trial training have you had?
Good attorneys learn from their mistakes. Great attorney’s take the time to learn from other attorney’s mistakes too. There are some great programs available in this country to help attorney’s get better at what they do. Before you hire an attorney make sure he takes enough pride in what he does to attend them.
