How To Choose A Lawyer
Once you've identified the type of lawyer you need, and various candidates, check on the lawyer's background before meeting each possible candidate.
Prepare questions ahead of the meeting. Add questions as they come to you on Survivorship A to Z's Prioritizer. It allows you to re-order questions at the touch of a button. Then you can print the list before the meeting.
After the meeting, think about:
- Which lawyer seems most likely to win your case.
- The fee arrangement.
- Whether you feel comfortable enough to discuss all aspects of the case.
- The lawyer's schedule. If a terrific lawyer is involved in a large case which demands substantial time and effort, will your work be shunted to the bottom of the pile?
