What Should You Look For When Hiring An Attorney?

The lawyer you choose can be an essential factor in whether your case is successful. Choosing the right attorney, then, is one of the most important legal decisions you can make, and there are many factors to consider when making that choice.

Honesty

One of the first things to look for in an attorney is honesty. You want a lawyer who will tell you frankly whether your claim has a chance at succeeding.

Experience Relevant To Your Case

The law encompasses a wide variety of practice areas – be sure that the attorney you choose has experience that is relevant to your case. This experience gives them working knowledge that they can use to help you explore the options particular to your legal concern, make arguments based on the relevant laws and create a more compelling case.

At The Nourmand Law Firm, APC, for example, our focus on labor and employment law, exclusively representing California employees,gives us the knowledge necessary to help clients pursue claims against employers for wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, failure to pay overtime wages, failure to provide compliant meal and rest breaks and a variety of other unlawful and discriminatory practices.

The Attorney’s Experience And Record

Explore the attorney’s bio, their case results and any testimonials you might see. How long have they been practicing the law, and how much experience do they have in this field? Have they been recognized for their excellence by their peers? Do they have a documented record of success? All these accolades are more than just high-profile work – they are also a sign that your attorney could be able to create positive results for you.

Communication

Whether you have questions or want to know about updates to your case, your ability to communicate with your attorney is essential. You should know how to contact them, what their hours are, and whether they may be available outside those office hours for emergencies. Those details should also work with your schedule.

Just as important as their availability is your level of comfort when speaking to them. Do you feel that you can be honest with your attorney and that your concerns are being addressed when you work with them? That comfort is important to consider because it can have a great impact on your ability to communicate with them about your case.
