  • Consider the following:

    Comfort Level
    - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

    - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

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

    - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?

  • Here are a few to get you started:

    • How long have you been in practice?
    • How many cases like mine have you handled?
    • How often do you settle cases out of court?
    • What are your fees and costs?
    • What are the next steps?

  • It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

    • 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.
