Finding a lawyer who’s capable, knowledgeable, and compatible with you is key to achieving the best possible result in your case. That’s why today we’d like to share some pointers on how to find a lawyer you can trust.
Identify Prospective Lawyers
The first step is to find prospective lawyers. Your friends or acquaintances may be able to refer you a lawyer they trust. The internet is also a useful tool in this regard. At the Rivas Law Group, we have more than 20 years of experience providing legal help to people from different backgrounds and with different litigation needs.
From state crimes to family law and federal crimes, we can offer high-quality guidance and representation you can trust.
Interview Prospective Lawyers
Choosing a lawyer is a very important decision. So it makes sense to get as much information as you can before making a decision. Interviewing your prospective lawyers is always a good idea. It gives you a sense of who you will be working with and what you can expect from your prospective lawyer.
Some of the aspects you should evaluate during this interview include:
- Experience: Ask your prospective lawyer how long have they practiced law and what is their experience with your type of case.
- Personality: This aspect is far from trivial. The personality of your attorney plays a role in how they will handle your case and how they will interact with you. In short, personal chemistry is an important factor that you shouldn’t overlook.
- Communication style: Try to get a sense of the communication style of your prospective lawyer. Do they make an effort to really understand all the details of your case? Are they clear and direct with their explanations?
- Availability: Ask your prospective lawyers how long would it take for them to return your communications. Having an experienced lawyer that you just can’t contact can be a frustrating and counter-productive experience.
