Q: How do I know that they are suitable for my case?

A: Lawyers and law firms often have websites. These websites usually contain information about the firm, and awards and certifications that the attorneys possess. The more experience a firm or lawyer has, the better equipped they are to handle your case.

Q: Should I ask certain questions when I initially meet my lawyer?

A: It is ideal to write down all questions and concerns you have about your case, and bring that, as well as relevant documents, to your first meeting. This way, you are organized and prepared to listen to the attorney's answers in detail. You may ask about their legal experience, as well as their willingness to take on your case. It is important that you discuss your role in the case, as well, so you know what you are expected to do. Discussing how soon your case will be resolved is also important information to obtain.

Q: What about fees?

A: Different law firms have different types of fees. For example, if a firm has fixed rates, this means that all clients are charged the same, no matter what issue a client is facing. A contingency fee is when a lawyer or firm does not charge the client any money unless the client is awarded monetary compensation. Hourly fees may include the amount of time an attorney spends with you in person, over the phone, or responding to emails. Firms and attorneys all charge differently, so you may wish to ask about their pricing when you have your initial meeting.
