Choosing An Attorney to Work with You

Posted by Dirk Jordan | Apr 06, 2021 | 0 Comments

Choosing an attorney involves considering several factors. Do you want an experienced attorney, who may cost more per hour but is efficient because they have been down the road a time or two, or do you want an inexpensive attorney who may cost less per hour but have a steep leaning curve?

Some questions to ask:

• Is the attorney experienced in your area of interest? Someone can be an excellent attorney in their area of expertise but not be able to help you in others. I
• Does the attorney inspire confidence and trust?
• What are your goals in hiring the attorney? What problems do you want the attorney to solve?
• Do you have the resources to see the case to the end? Although you may receive attorney's fees from the court if you prevail, it is possible the judge may not award fees.
• What is the attorney's reputation? Was he/she referred by a friend or another attorney
• Do you like him/her? You could be spending a lot of time with your attorney and it makes things easier if you are compatible. Your attorney does not have to become your best friend.
