The quality of the lawyer you choose WILL almost always determine the success of your case. We have to repeat. Cases are decided by the quality of the team representing you. Often, when choosing a lawyer for the first time, your knowledge may be limited in what traits to look out for. Below is the perfect ‘quick checklist’ every potential client should consider when choosing a lawyer. After, and only after, reading this list should you then choose your lawyer.
If your situation requires legal representation, it is a good idea to personally speak with a minimum of three lawyers before deciding on who should represent your case. This should start with phone calls and end with face-to-face meetings with those that best suit your needs and budget.
If you are already working with a lawyer and but find yourself uneasy or concerned with progress of your case, the source of the problem is likely one of the three items listed above. Remember, it is never too late to find another lawyer. Do not drag on your case with someone who cannot get the results you deserve.
There is no reason to wait or procrastinate if you need legal services. HOWEVER, before you do make your choice, you should have a solid understanding of how to Interview Potential Lawyers. In order to make a smart and educated decision, you should ask these five important questions. If meeting face-to-face, do not forget to bring a pen and pad to write down the responses to review and compare before making this important decision.
Remember legal fees can be very expensive and paying someone, who may ultimately fire, will not be a pleasant experience for you or your wallet. Doing your homework and choosing the best representation the first time around is a wise investment of time and your hard earned money.
