When I look for a lawyer, what are the qualities I should seek?
Well you should look for a lawyer who has experience in the area of law that you need. Make sure that they’ve done the type of case that you have before, that they understand what they’re doing, and that they’re able to answer your questions. Make sure that there’s a good fit with the lawyer. Do you like them? Would you like to work with them? Do you want them handling your case? Does everything seem right? Do you trust them? Just ask yourself some common sense questions, and see how the answers stack up. Ask them how your case will be handled. Will they be working on it? Will they send it off to assistants? Will you ever see that lawyer again? Find out how their office works.Then see what other organizations they’re involved in. Are they active in their bar association? Are they active in specialty bar associations? Do they speak to other lawyers? Do they lecture? Do they do other things like that that make them a better lawyer? Find out about all those questions. Get yourself some answers that make some sense, and make sure that it’s a good fit for you.
