A Time of Need
Most people do not look for a lawyer when everything is going well. Try to keep a level head during your time of crisis and make sure that the attorney you eventually choose is the best for both you and your case.
The Initial Meeting
When meeting with a potential lawyer, it is best to explain your case in detail, so that he or she can acquire an intimate understanding of the unique skills that your case may require. Choosing a lawyer is a business proposition and the potential lawyer will be interviewing you as much as you will be interviewing him or her.
Some questions that you might want to ask include the following:
- How long have you been practicing law?
- What is your typical area of practice?
- Have you handled similar cases to mine in the past?
- What does your fee structure look like?
- Have you written any books or publications?
Making The Choice
After you have met with multiple lawyers, it is time to now choose the one you want to represent you. Remember that the attorney you hire will be your voice in the courtroom and he or she should inspire confidence and trust. When you do end up hiring a lawyer, he or she will want to sit down with you to further discuss the details of your case and to formulate a plan to help you obtain compensation for your injuries.
