5 Qualities to Look for in Your Civil Litigation Attorney, Wahoo, Nebraska

Whether you’re facing civil litigation or filing a suit, you need legal representation you can depend on. Especially when your rights and freedoms are at stake, you need a seasoned lawyer who will take the necessary strategic approach to secure the best possible outcome. Consider these five factors as you look for a law office that meets your needs.

Characteristics to Consider in a Lawyer

1. Experience

The more cases your civil litigation attorney has taken on that are similar to yours the more likely they are to know what will work in your situation. Ask for a breakdown of your lawyer’s practice areas, their success rate, and their approach.

2. Training

All lawyers spend seven to eight years preparing for and passing the bar exam, but, depending on the nature of your case, you should also ask whether they have specialized training beyond that. Areas that often call for advanced expertise include personal injury, corporate and criminal law, and intellectual property.

3. Invested in Your Case

Civil LitigationEven at a promising law office, you may find yourself being ignored or pushed aside in favor of other clients and cases. To avoid this, speak to your lawyer about how much time they expect to spend on your case and how often you should anticipate hearing from them. Your attorney should be interested in the details of your situation. By the end of your consultation, they should be able to outline a strategy for your case.

4. Upfront with Billing

A good lawyer should also be frank with you about their billing policies. They should outline their fee structure, when it will be due, what services you’re paying for, and whether any additional ones will be needed for your case.

5. Highly Rated

Martindale-Hubbell is a service that lists reliable attorneys in every city in the US and rates their performance. Look up your lawyer before you make a decision to see how they’ve been rated by peers and clients who have worked with them in the past.
