These are some sample questions you may want to ask yourself before making the final decision:
- Are you comfortable enough with the lawyer's working style to work closely with him/her?
- Do you believe the lawyer has the experience and skill to handle your case?
- Does the lawyer's explanation of what your case involves seem clear and logical to you?
- Does the fee seem reasonable and justified?
- Is the fee agreement in writing, and does it outline what is covered and what isn't?
If your answers to these questions are all "yes," chances are you should hire this lawyer. If not, you should continue looking for another lawyer.
