Looking for a Phoenix lawyer? Make sure you ask these five questions.
Making the decision about which Phoenix law firm to hire is not one that should be taken lightly. If you are looking for a divorce lawyer or criminal law attorney, you need to realize that the person you choose can make a significant impact on the outcome of your case.
At the law firm of Curry, Pearson & Wooten, we understand that finding a lawyer is not easy. Therefore, we have compiled a list of questions you should ask any attorney you are thinking of hiring.
1. Do you have experience handling cases similar to mine? Even if a lawyer advertises that he or she represents your type of case, it doesn't mean this person has a lot of experience. You need to ensure that the attorney you choose possesses the appropriate experience and skills.
2. What is your background? The more experience an attorney has, the better. A lawyer with a unique background relevant to your situation could help your case outcome.
3. Are you a member of any trial associations or other industry groups? Trial associations and other industry-related groups have strict requirements for membership. A lawyer with membership in such an organization has distinguished qualifications and a high level of expertise.
4. Will I work with you directly or will an associate handle my case? You should confirm that you will be working directly with the attorney. Many law firms will pass your case to an associate. You deserve to be represented by a lawyer who will talk with you personally and answer your questions willingly.
5. Have you written any publications or taught courses in the area of law that you handle? When an attorney writes a publication or teaches seminars or courses in his or her area of the law, it indicates his or her level of knowledge on the subject. Be sure to ask if the lawyer has written any publications or taught in his or her area of the law.
Getting the answers to these important questions will put you on the track to finding the right lawyer for your case.
