How Should I Choose an Attorney?

When initially consulting with a lawyer, once you’ve discussed the facts of your case, you might ask them to review the strengths and weaknesses of your case with you. If their response does not sound like the strengths outweigh the weaknesses, or if they can’t tell you how they intend to make up for any weaknesses in your case, it would be fair to ask why they are taking your case in the first place. It may not be in your best interest to sign up with a lawyer who can’t tell you why they are taking you on as a client and thereby run the risk of having your case dropped when the lawyer later realizes they can’t actually help you.

Additionally, many people like to know that the attorney they choose will be by their side from the start to the finish of their case. This means that if the attorney cannot successfully settle your case, they are prepared to take your case to trial. While many attorneys do handle trial work, many choose to hand your case off to a litigation law firm in the event a lawsuit needs to be filed. If having the same lawyer throughout your medical treatment, settlement negotiations and trial is important to you, ask your potential lawyer if they personally handle trial work.
