Finding the right lawyer
A few words on finding the right lawyer are appropriate. Selecting the right lawyer for your legal matter is the most important step to a satisfactory outcome, in my opinion. The lawyer needs to be experienced with your legal problem and have achieved favorable results in past cases. The lawyer must have the time to commit to your case and be responsive to your requests for information. The lawyer should be physically located within a relatively short drive from the courthouse (15 minutes to 1.5 hours) in order to handle the filings and appearances your matter may require. Lastly, you must form a sense of trust in the professional you hire. An experienced lawyer with a record of success and the time for you will enable you to feel comfortable with your choice.
