What Other Things Should I Consider Before Hiring The Lawyer?

Some things to consider including asking the lawyer whether he/she will work on your case personally or have another member of the law firm handle all or part of it. If a second lawyer and/or other member of the firm are involved, you should talk with them, as well. Keep in mind that most legal cases are not "sure things." Be wary of any lawyer who "guarantees" results. However, a lawyer will be able to determine the strengths and weaknesses of your case better than you can.

If you do not understand everything the lawyer tells you, ask for an explanation in simpler terms. Find out about how long the lawyer expects your case might take, what steps will be involved in preparing it and taking it to trial (if needed), what may expected from you in further preparing the case, and how you will be charged for the lawyer's services.
