5.0 out of 5 stars

I needed to get a will and power of attorney quickly before moving out of the area, so I could have peace of mind knowing that all of my affairs were taken care of in case something happened. I appreciated the fact that Kyle talked to me on the phone and didn't make me make an appointment. He handled everything via email and did this all within a few days! I highly recommend Kyle and his law firm!

I found Mr. Short professional, detailed and fully engaged in my case. His expertise was appreciated and his followup timely. His patience in dealing with opposing counsel was tested thoroughly but his diligence in pursuing legal closure was much appreciated.

This man just takes your money. He is full of lies and highly unknowledable. He even shows up late and rarely answers calls or emails? Find better options, stay far far away

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?

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

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

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

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.
