Attorney consultations give you a chance to determine whether you want to work with a particular law firm while giving the lawyer an opportunity to review the merits of your case. While it’s important to listen to their advice and explanations of your legal options, you should take the time to gather information about the attorney’s background, expertise, and the level of service they provide.
When interviewing attorneys, the following questions will give you the insight you need to make the best choice possible:
How Long Have You Been Practicing Law?
The more experience a lawyer has, the deeper their understanding of the legal process will be. Whether you’re buying a home or facing serious charges, you’ll want an attorney who’ll anticipate issues before they arise, know how to address them, and make the process as smooth as possible.
Have You Handled Similar Cases in the Past?
Every area of the law is unique, requiring specific skills and in-depth knowledge to navigate effectively. Find out how much of the attorney’s practice is dedicated to cases like yours, whether they have handled similar situations in the past, and what outcomes they were able to achieve for their clients.
What Outcomes Can I Expect?
No attorney can guarantee success, but they should be able to explain the most likely outcomes of your case. Beware of any law firm that makes promises they may not be able to keep. However, you also want a professional who believes in you and is confident in fighting for your best interest and securing a realistic and favorable result.
