Title: Choosing the right lawyer for your case


1
Choosing the right lawyer for your case
2
  • If you are a financial advisor and find yourself
    in a spot of legal trouble, you will need the
    help of a lawyer. How do you choose the right
    lawyer? In this blog we list some of the ways in
    which you can have access to the best lawyer.

3
  • Conduct candidate interviews
  • Interviewing a lawyer is the best way of
    assessing his legal ability. Most attorneys will
    provide you with an initial consultation free of
    charge. Consider the below questions when you
    interview the lawyer

4
  • What is the experience of the lawyer in your type
    of legal matter?
  • How long is the lawyer in practice?
  • What is the lawyers track record of success?
  • What percentage of the caseload is dedicated to
    handling your kind of problem?
  • Do they possess any additional skills?
  • What are the lawyers fees and how is it
    structured?
  • Does the lawyer have malpractice insurance?
  • Who else is going to work on your case and what
    are their rates?
  • How often will you be billed?
  • Can they provide references from other clients?
  • Do they have a written fee agreement?
  • How are you going to be informed of any
    developments in your case?

5
  • After meeting the lawyer ask yourself the
    following questions
  • Is the lawyers experience and background
    compatible with your needs?
  • Do they provide prompt and courteous answers?
  • Will you be comfortable working with them?
  • Are you confident that they have the skills and
    experience to tackle your case?
  • Are you comfortable with the fees and their
    structure?

6
  • Ask other lawyers
  • Lawyers are aware of the skill and reputation of
    their fellow lawyers. Attorneys may be able to
    provide information about a fellow attorney which
    is not readily available. They have information
    about the lawyers ethics, competence level,
    practice habits, demeanor, as well as their
    reputation.

7
  • Background check
  • Before hiring the Securities Disputes Lawyer,
    contact the lawyer disciplinary agency in your
    home state in order to confirm that they are in
    good standing as members of the bar. If you have
    located the attorney over the internet, a
    background check is an absolute necessity. You
    can also check the attorneys peer reviews
    online.

8
  • Tour the office
  • You can say a lot about an attorney from the
    shape of his office. You should request the
    lawyer for a brief tour of the facilities apart
    from the office and consulting room. Check if the
    law office is neat, tidy, and well run. What
    about the support staff? Does the staff appear
    friendly?

9
  • If you are a financial advisor needing a lawyer
    then look for legal services for financial
    advisors, financial advisor lawyers, financial
    advisor attorney, attorneys representing
    financial advisors and financial advisor lawyers
    in Chicago.
