When you're in the process of hiring a lawyer, you should do some research before you meet with lawyers in person. Before you sit down and talk to a lawyer, call his or her office and ask for information. Many good lawyers have free information, such as books, reports, CDs, and DVDs about the types of cases they cover and services they provide.
Most lawyers offer free preliminary consultations. If you meet with a lawyer in person before reading through the information they provide, you may not get the information you need and you may feel pressured to sign a contract. Instead, you should do the initial research in the comfort of your own home without any pressure to hire an attorney immediately.
Ask the law office to send you anything they would like you to read that would convince you to hire them as your attorneys. Many lawyers are happy to help you educate yourself.
