Choosing A Lawyer
How do I know which lawyer to hire?
It depends on how you feel after meeting with them. How comfortable do you feel with the answers the lawyer provided to your questions? If you asked the lawyer how he/she handled a case similar to yours, are you satisfied with the results? Base your decision on how well you feel the lawyer can handle your case, rather than being concerned about his/her age. Just remember that even though a lawyer may have been in practice for 15 or 20 years, he/she may not have as much experience with your particular type of situation as one who has more recently graduated from law school.
What other things should I consider before hiring the lawyer?
“sure things.” Be wary of any lawyer who “guarantees” results. However, a lawyer will be able to determine the strengths and weaknesses of your case better than you can.
If you do not understand everything the lawyer tells you, ask for an explanation in simpler terms. Find out about how long the lawyer expects your case might take, what steps will be involved in.
If you end up meeting the lawyer in person for a consultation, you shouldn’t expect it to last any longer than 15 minutes to a half-hour. Write down all the information you get from each lawyer. Review your notes a couple of times, and take some time to think things over before making a decision. Then, make an appointment to discuss your situation further with the lawyer who seems best for you.
How should I prepare for my meeting with the lawyer?
Before the meeting, it always helps to make notes about your legal situation so you can easily go over the important points with the lawyer. Bring the names, addresses and telephone numbers of everyone connected with your case (including witnesses), as well as all papers involved in your case. Some lawyers may ask to see the papers before the meeting. If the one you’re meeting does, fax everything the lawyer requests as quickly as possible so he/she has enough time to go over it all before meeting with you.
Every year countless number of individuals are seriously injured in motor vehicle and/or pedestrian accidents. In fact, according to government studies, a car accident occurs virtually every 9 seconds. In 2008, it is estimated that there were reported at least 6 million traffic crashes which resulted in about 40,000 deaths and almost 3 million injuries.
These are some sample questions you may want to ask yourself before making the final decision:
- Are you comfortable enough with the lawyer’s working style to work closely with him/her?
- Do you believe the lawyer has the experience and skill to handle your case?
- Does the lawyer’s explanation of what your case involves seem clear and logical to you?
