HOW TO SPOT THE RIGHT LAWYER FOR YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CASE.
My friend was looking for a lawyer for a business dispute and was at a loss. She didn’t know who to hire or how to even get started looking, so she began by asking me. I pointed her in the right direction, but her quest made me realize that most people – those who don’t practice law – lack the resources to find good legal counsel.
So how does a non-lawyer determine who is a qualified candidate for their particular case? Of course, you can’t get all the information for your decision in this Blog, but I’ll try to help with some general questions and considerations that apply to most cases.
General Considerations. Does your case involve a fairly typical fact pattern, like an automobile intersection collision? Or does it involve some unusual legal issue? Is yours the type of case where you want a local lawyer or is there some strategic benefit to having a lawyer nearer where the lawsuit might be filed? Are you looking for a specialist? Do you want to pay by the hour or are you more comfortable with a contingent fee?
