Questions to Ask Your Doylestown Lawyer

Before providing legal advice, a lawyer must, at a minimum, have attended law school, passed a bar examination and been admitted by a state board to practice law. The process to becoming a lawyer is not easy but there are still significant differences between how lawyers treat their clients and manage cases. Here are some questions you may want to consider asking a lawyer before hiring him or her:

  • How long has the lawyer been practicing? Experience does not necessarily indicated competency, but generally the more a lawyer has seen the better.
  • How much experience do you have handling my type of case? You should try and find a lawyer who has a practice that focuses in the area of your need. For example, a corporate lawyer is probably not the best candidate to manage a personal injury claim.
  • What is your style of case management? Every lawyer will have their own style of case management. Try and find a Doylesotwn lawyer that has a style you are comfortable with.
  • How accessible will you be? Unfortunately, many lawyers have poor communication skills or are not accessible to their clients. If the ability to communicate with your lawyer is important to you, then make sure the lawyer you select is going to be accessible.
  • How will my case be handled by your firm? Some lawyers work in teams or in large offices with large support networks; other lawyers operate sole-practices and have no support. Find a law firm that is the right size and fit for you.

We would love the opportunity to discuss these questions and your case with you. Please contact us today online or by calling 888-777-7098.
