Hiring an attorney is not the easiest of processes. No two lawyers are exactly the same, and you’ll want to make sure that you’re getting the most out of their services in attempting to win your case. Before you google lawyers and hire the first one with an appealing name, take a look at some of the common misconceptions that some make when choosing an attorney for the first time.
- They only say what you want to hear. While it’s true that everyone is going to be vying for the position, there are a few things to note when interviewing your lawyer. If they sound like a sales pitch, there might be a red flag hidden among their jargon. Good questions to ask would be previous track record within the same field, as well as a number of references who can attest to their work.
- They’re in it for the money. At the end of the day, it is the job of your attorney, and they do have to make a living — that doesn’t necessarily mean that they don’t care about the case at hand. It would be beneficial to you to find a lawyer who is competent enough about the practice, and takes a genuine interest in you and your case. By selecting someone with the passion to succeed for you over their payment, you’re already taking steps to a successful case.
