Pick Your Attorney With Care!

When you are looking the right attorney, make sure you do your due diligence.

It is likely that whatever you need an attorney for is probably something pretty serious, and in some cases, mission critical to your life. Make sure that you call at least three different firms to check out the landscape in your area.  Ask as many questions as you can think of (and it helps to prepare these before you call).  Pay careful attention to the way the attorney conducts themselves. Do they seem to care about YOU and your problem? Or is their focus only on the payment? We understand that law is a business, but attorneys who handle intensely personal matters like bankruptcy, or estates and wills (with the accompanying family infighting that can often be present) need to understand and be sympathetic to your situation, and your stress, even while discussing fees with you.  A divorce attorney needs to be even more careful when discussing your potential case. If they are going to be looking out for your best interests, it can’t only be about money (and in fact some of the richest most successful attorneys are also good at taking care of the clients, putting their clients’ needs before their own, and being very good listeners.
