    - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

    • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
    • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
    • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
