Choose the Right Law Firm
Whether you need a lawyer for your day-to-day business or just once in your entire lifetime, picking the right representation is critical. Many people go their entire lives without having to consider which lawyer or law firm they would go to for help if it was needed. In many cases, the utmost concern for people looking for an attorney is cost. Lawyers are expensive, and may people cannot fathom paying someone hundreds of dollars an hour for any service. This is where most people make a mistake in choosing their representation, especially those who need an attorney because they are in trouble.
It is undoubtedly a shock to find yourself in a position where you need a lawyer, whether it is a civil matter, such as being sued by a business partner or someone injured on your property, or a criminal one, such as a DUI, theft, or illegal substance possession. On top of the shock of the situation is the sheer volume of attorneys that are available. Opening the phone book or doing an Internet search for a law firm will yield hundreds of responses in normal-sized towns, thousands in large cities.
In order to narrow your search, find a lawyer or law firm that specializes in the type of case you need them for. Your brother-in-law may be an attorney, and he may be very good at it, but if he specializes in tax law, and you have a criminal charge filed against you, go find someone else. You probably don’t want your brother-in-law or your neighbor representing you anyway. Many lawyers will list multiple fields of specialties. This is often basic advertising. If an attorney says they specialize in something, call and ask how many cases in that field they were involved with in the past year. If you don’t receive a straight answer in a timely manner, move on to the next attorney. At Ascent Law, we focus in several areas of law, but there are some that we simply do not touch at all. If you call our office and we do not practice in that area, we can refer you to someone good that we know, like and trust.
Your best option is to call our office and speak with an attorney. Even in the biggest of cities, the legal world is a small one, and if the attorney you ask for advice doesn’t know someone on your list, they will definitely know someone who knows them. So if you are looking for an attorney who practices in admiralty law, we can guide you in the right direction.
We are convinced that when you meet with us, and experience the difference, you’ll want to keep working with our firm through the ups and downs of your business or personal life. So whether you have an adoption, divorce or related family law matter, a business you are running or collections that need to be taken care of, financial issues or bankruptcy, elder law as well, from real estate cases to estate planning, we expect your call for a free consultation.
