If you’re in the market for some legal counsel, you may soon find out that there are quite a lot of them out there. There are fresh attorneys full of drive and ambition, and there is also a good group of veteran lawyers seasoned with experience, all ready for when you pick them to help you out.

You would definitely be doing yourself a huge favor by not going for the most decorated lawyer right away; instead, take time to research as much as you can on a potential list of candidates for you to choose from. You can ask your friends and family for advice on where to go – it’s always best to find counsel with your best interests at heart. If you don’t know anyone personally, you can check online or locally for any Bar associations which can make a recommendation for you, based on what legal needs you have. There are also directories online and on paper to check out, but the fact of the matter is the more personal you know the lawyer, the more you actually work together for each others benefit without any cases and issues of trust.

Once you do have a list of possible attorneys, here are some pointers to take moving forward:

1. Make a background check. Each state and province has some form of disciplinary organization which keeps track of how a certain lawyer in that area has been acting, and how he or she has handled previous cases. These people can help you find out if any of the lawyers in your mind have handled anything similar to what you could be experiencing right now, and you would have a better picture of how things would turn out if you hired them for you. If you’re having trouble finding these sorts of agencies, you may need to look closer online, or you can go as far as asking other lawyers regarding the performance of the counsel you’re looking at.

Depending on the atmosphere, that may be all you need to see and hear in order for you to know if this is the lawyer for you. Are the staff friendly? Are there other clients around? Check these and more when you pay them a visit.

3. Interview the lawyer. When all previous testings check out, the final thing to do is to see how they respond to your questions, personally. Here are some questions to ask:

  • What sort of experience does the lawyer have in regards to cases similar to yours?
  • How long has this lawyer been in practice?
  • Does the lawyer have any additional special certifications or skills which may work to your benefit?
  • How much does the lawyer charge? Are these payment options structured? How often will you be charged?
  • Does the lawyer have the appropriate insurance against malpractice?

Again, like any other investment, choosing a lawyer is definitely going to take a considerable amount of research on your part, for you to find the right person, right away. Foregoing any research may lead to an endless amount of regret on your part. Take the time to check, visit, and interview any potential legal counsel, and both of you will come out on top.
