Questions to ask your attorney before you hire them

Finding the best attorney for you case can often be difficult. You should feel confident in your attorney’s abilities. You should also be able to trust them to make the best decisions for your case.  Some of the things you may want to ask the attorney when you talk over the phone or meet include:

  • How much experience do you have with legal issues similar to mine?
  • How recently have you handled a case like mine?
  • How was it resolved?
  • What was the result? (Did you win the case?)
  • When was the last time you went to trial on a case?
  • Have you ever been fired by a client?

Look for an attorney who concentrates his or her practice in the area of law that you need. Ask your state bar association if the attorney has ever been the subject of an ethical complaint or injury. Keep in mind that most legal cases are not “sure things.” Be wary of any attorney who “guarantees” results. However, an attorney will be able to determine the strengths and weaknesses of your case better than you can. The most important thing is that you are comfortable and have confidence in the attorney.

Tips for meeting with an attorney:

Be prepared. Make notes before the meeting so you can easily go over the important points with the attorney.

Bring all the documents concerning your case to the meeting (accident report, medical bill or records, photos, etc.).

Bring a pad to take notes.
