Make sure your lawyer has handled your type of case before.
It’s important to review your lawyer’s success rate in your type of case.
Hire someone that you feel comfortable with. Can she explain things clearly? Did he answer all of your questions?
Hire someone who cares. When you met, did you feel like just another prospect or was the lawyer genuinely interested in you and your case? Contrary to one of the popular lawyer joke themes, not all lawyers are simply mercenaries out to make a fee.
Make sure your lawyer has reviews! Avvo.com is a great tool to find out what other clients thought of the attorney.
The initial consultation is always FREE. For Commercial Litigation and Personal Injury Law cases, there is no legal fee unless we are successful in getting you money.
