Evaluating what is Most Important when Hiring an Attorney

People have varying opinions on what is most important about hiring a lawyer.  However, there are certain things that should play a part in your decision:

1. Consistent past results: Even the best lawyers lose cases occasionally.  What’s important is consistency.  If a lawyer you’re considering does not have consistent successful results, it’s a red flag that you may want to hire a different lawyer.

2. Experience:  Lawyers should be experienced in your case area.  Just because a lawyer has filed claims before does not mean he or she is well versed in your type of claim.  Different types of claims and lawsuits are governed by very different rules.

3. Board Certification:  You want to be sure your doctor is Board-certified, and the same goes for lawyers.  This credential shows a lawyer is receiving continuing education and wants to be on top of new laws and regulations that could affect your case.

4. Recognition in: Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers together with a “superb” rating from Avvo and a “preeminent” designation from Martindale-Hubbell.
