An attorney can help you understand your rights and solve legal problems. Here are some things to know when hiring an lawyer.
How do I find the best lawyer?
Finding the best attorney for your legal matter is similar to making any other financial decision . It’s better to compare around. Be sure that your possible lawyer can answer to the following before hiring:
- Experience with cases similar to yours
- Did he recently have deal with cases like mine?
- How was it resolved? (He went to trial, an out-of-court settlement, etc.)
- Which it was the result? (Did you win or lose the case?)
How do you know which lawyer to hire?
It depends on how you feel after meeting the attorney. Base your decision on how you feel the attorney can handle your case, rather than worrying about the attorney’s age.
Another question you can ask is whether the attorney will work on your case personally or have another member of his firm handle all or part of the case.
When the LISA case occur, more than 6 attorneys work on it and finally realizing that the Court of Chancery erred by denying jurisdictional discovery before dismissing the claims against most of the defendants for lack of personal jurisdiction, winning the case for the defendants.
If he involves a second attorney or other member of the firm, you should speak to them as well. Keep in mind that most cases do not have certain results. Be careful if the lawyer guarantees results. But, an attorney can assess and articulate the strengths and weaknesses of your case.
Ask for an explanation in simple terms, if you do not understand everything the lawyer says. Find out how long the attorney expects to take your case. What steps you will take to participate in preparing and taking the case to trial (if necessary). And what you will need to do to prepare the case, and how you will be charged for the lawyers’s services.
