During a difficult life experience, it can be daunting to select the right legal counsel for you and your circumstances. This is why we want to give you some tips about how to select the right attorney. It is important to establish an effective working relationship while having confidence that you are working with competent counsel. Here are a few things to consider while selecting an attorney.
- Work Experience: Select an experienced attorney who has worked successfully in the profession over time. Attorneys are likely to have their own practice focus such as family law, civil litigation, criminal law, or disability benefits work. Attorney experience and practice focus can impact the outcomes for your particular issue so consider selecting an experienced attorney in a relevant area of practice.
- Possible Approaches: Whether you are interested in litigation or possible approaches to resolution such as negotiation, mediation, collaborative law, other alternative dispute resolution options, or arbitration, you should obtain accurate information about the possible options and consider the best approaches to achieve your goals. You might read about these approaches from reputable sources or speak to the attorney that you are considering selecting to become more comfortable with your options. You may want to consider legal counsel that is familiar with a variety of possible approaches.
- The Source: Another way to find an attorney is to ask your friends, relatives, coworkers, accountants, medical professionals, or other service providers about attorneys that they would recommend. Consider asking about the experience of your referral source, about the attorney’s expertise, and about whether your objectives are reasonably attainable.
