Choosing Your Lawyer

Whatever Legal Issue you have (Injuries, drafting a will or a trust, buying or selling real estate or getting a divorce, or even charged with a crime), it is important to select the best attorney possible.

Many attorneys offer an initial consultation free of charge. Take advantage of this. Use the meeting to determine whether the attorney is honest and forthcoming. Instinctively, some people have the ability to determine an individual’s character within a few minutes of interacting with the person;

For example, is the lawyer looking you in the eye when speaking with you, or is he or she looking at the ground? Remember, people who don’t maintain eye contact usually have a problem with the truth.

Also, ask the attorney about your case’s chance of success or failure. If the lawyer sounds unusually optimistic and doesn’t tell you any of the risks or downplays the costs associated with the case, he or she is probably not being honest. Remember, there are downsides and risks to almost every case!

Prior to entering into any official relationship it is important to feel secure in the knowledge that your lawyer is an experienced Litigator. After all, there’s nothing worse than being in an extended court battle and not having an Experienced Pro by your side – particularly one who is Respected and well-known as he simply enters the courtroom. I have tried thousands of cases throughout my career.

I have been looking for a lawyer to help with some property issues I am having. It would be really nice to go to a few consultations and then decide which lawyer is the best fit. I will look into that.
