How to hire a lawyer

If you or a loved one have been injured in an auto accident, an 18-wheeler accident, or other type of accident due to the negligence of a third party, you should seek legal advice to help you through the process. However, most people don't know where to start. Following is an excerpt from a article on the topic:


How To Find A Good Lawyer When You Really Need One

"First, make sure the attorneys actually offer the service you're looking for. Second, check your State Bar's website to see if any disciplinary actions have been placed against them. You can then ask them some questions:

Who exactly will I be working with? You don't want to find an attorney you really like only to discover that you're handed off to a junior associate who you don't like so much.

What are your credentials? Every lawyer admitted to the bar in your state is technically qualified to practice law but they may have also obtained a specialization, a credential like the AEP designation (Accredited Estate Planner), or an LLM (Master of Laws) in an area like tax law.

How much experience do you have working with clients like me in similar situations? You don't necessarily want your son's friend's DUI lawyer drafting his first trust for you.

How would you be paid? If you're paying a fixed fee or an hourly rate, you'll want some idea of what this would cost you and whether it's worth it.

Do you have any questions for me? A good attorney will be focused on your situation and needs rather than theirs.

Finally, you'll want to work with someone you like and trust, so don't discount the importance of personality and personal chemistry."
