Lawyers all go through professional training, but one cannot say they are all equal. Like any other professional industry, there are those with many resources and experiences and those who may not step up to the plate when they need to.
The quality of your lawyer dramatically impacts the outcome of your case. It is essential to do everything you can to find a lawyer you can trust.
Tips for Finding a Good Lawyer
While it’s difficult to predict exactly how a relationship will go with your lawyer, there are some simple steps to follow to ensure you get the best experience you possibly can.
Listen to Reviews
Just like you would read a review about a local restaurant or hair salon, you should look at reviews for lawyers before you hire them. Lawyers are professionals who provide a service, and it makes sense that you should consider the reports of other people’s experiences before making any commitment. While a bad review or two isn’t unheard of, consider turning elsewhere if they make up a significant chunk of reviews. Maybe you even have a friend or relative who can recommend you, someone they had a positive experience with.
Consider Established Firms
While experience isn’t everything, it certainly helps. Try to find a good lawyer who has many years under their belt and a proven track record. They know what they are doing and can likely use what they’ve learned from past cases to get you the compensation you deserve.
See if your potential new lawyer has any special awards or credentials. For instance, Travis McKay is recognized by The Alabama Jury Verdict Reporter as one of “the most prolific trial attorneys in Alabama.”
Before hiring anyone, it is essential to make sure you get along with them first. Talk to them about your case and see if you feel comfortable and safe with the lawyer.
