How to Look for a Potential Lawyer For as long as you know in what field of law practice does your legal case belong, you can then easily search for lawyers who specialize on this particular field and hope that your chosen lawyer can help you win your case. There are two essential aspects in looking for the type of lawyer that you need for your legal problem: the lawyer must have the expertise in the area which your case is involved and the lawyer must be familiar with the courts and laws of the place where you live. Examples of practice areas are: bankruptcy law for those struggling with their finances; criminal law applies into crimes or potentially illegal activities; disability specialist handles Social Security or veteran’s disability claims; trusts and estates deals with issues on estate planning, qualifying for Medicaid, probating an estate, and guardianship issues; family law for separation, divorce, pre-nuptial agreements, adoption, guardianship, child custody and support; personal injury law involving medical malpractice, dog bites, car accidents, and personal injury; employment law helps businesses set up employment policies or handle cases between employer-employee relationship; small business or corporate law to help in the legal process of establishing a business.

With the presence of a local bar association in your area, get in touch with them and ask for referrals, from their free referral service, on a potential lawyer to handle your case. Another option, if there is no local bar association in the locality, is to check online of listings of lawyers in your area.

Sometimes, your friends or family members can provide you referrals for whom they believe can be a good lawyer for your case, especially if they have a good experience with their recommended lawyer, so find out from them and ask about the kind of service, as well as the cost which they have incurred. When you have a list of your potential lawyers, contact each of them and set up a consultation, but find out if there is a consultation fee so you can avoid making an appointment with that lawyer. When you have set your meeting with each of the lawyer, come up with questions that pertain to your case, such as attorney’s fees, whether it is on an hour basis or a flat fee; delivery time for the legal work, although it may not be that definite, but the lawyer can tell how long similar cases have lasted; the availability of the lawyer whenever you need him. At the course of discussion, show your documents that are connected to your case, so the lawyer can briefly go over it and can have a rundown analysis of whether he/she is willing to take the case. When you have weighed down the your meeting and discussion with each lawyer, choose the lawyer whom you found satisfaction with how he/she answered your questions.
