  • How do I choose a lawyer?

    • 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?

  • Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

    • 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?
  • Want to check lawyer discipline?

    • 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.
