Knowing that my divorce was going to be difficult, I interviewed several lawyers that were recommended to me. I decided to choose Lewis Shafer as I liked the confidence, professionalism and knowledge he portrayed. He made me feel a little more at ease as he thoroughly explained the law in every step of my case. His stategy was "PERFECT" and because of that, my case ended very well for me. Lewis Shafer was dedicated to my case and I know I made the right decision in hiring him. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Lewis is a money hungry monster! He cost me thousands and thousands of dollars and kept billing me. All he cares about is racking up the bill, not helping with your case. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere unless you want to give him every last penny you have and end up with nothing and no results!

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.
