When searching for a lawyer, consider the following:
Comfort – Are you comfortable confiding in the lawyer with personal and confidential information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials – Look at their biography, education and training. How long has the lawyer been in practice? What is their area of practice? How long have they been at their firm? Has the lawyer worked on cases similar to yours?
Cost – How are the lawyer’s fees structured – hourly or flat rate? Is a retainer required, or is it contingency based? Will the lawyer be able to provide you an estimate for the case?
City – Is the lawyer’s office located in an area that is easily and conveniently accessible to you?
