Choosing Your Attorney
Partnering with the right attorney is perhaps the most important decision you will make when pursuing your rights. Before you sign a retainer agreement, clients should:
- Meet face to face with the lawyer who will handle your case. Some firms will task a paralegal with interviewing the client and assign an attorney to the case after you sign the retainer agreement. Avoid this situation. If the firm cannot introduce you to the attorney who will handle your matter, how can you count on the firm giving you the attention you deserve after you have signed a retainer? I always meet face to face with my potential clients and thoroughly analyze the case before accepting representation.
- Ask the attorney how many active cases she or he typically handles contemporaneously. Some firms will assign attorneys 50 or more cases. All litigation is complex and requires a lot of time and individual client attention. Although every lawyer is different, when an attorney is simultaneously handling more than 20 cases, it is reasonable for the client to have concerns about whether the attorney will be able to thoroughly prosecute the case and tend to the client’s needs. I always keep my case load at a number that allows me to follow every lead and give my clients the personalized attention they need and deserve.
- Ask the attorney how many cases she or he has handled with facts similar to yours. Experience makes all the difference when it comes to achieving the best results. If the attorney lacks experience with your legal situation, the partnership might be less than ideal.
- Make sure your attorney is committed to taking your case to a jury, if necessary. Some firms and attorneys have a reputation for settling cases, which can negatively impact the amount of your recovery because the defense lawyer will know your attorney will encourage you to settle rather than holding out for the best possible result, including going to trial. You need an attorney who is prepared to go to trial if doing so increases your chances of maximizing your recovery.
- When interviewing attorneys, look for a counselor who makes you feel at ease. Litigation means spending a lot of time with your lawyer. Retaining an attorney who makes you feel comfortable and confident and who treats you with dignity and respect is an essential component of effective representation and positive outcomes.
