What should I look for in selecting a lawyer to represent me?

Before hiring a lawyer, you should spend some time researching the firm you are considering. Ask for information about the lawyer’s education, training, and experience dealing with cases similar to yours. Ask the lawyer to go over the fee contract with you in detail, and be sure you understand how you will pay the lawyer’s fees and costs at the end of the case. Ask about the possible adverse consequences if your case is lost. Ask if your lawyer intends to handle your case alone, and, if you are told that lawyers from outside firms will be assisting, find out what the fee arrangements will be.
