Your hunt for a good lawyer can be stressful, especially if you’ve never had to hire a Wichita attorney before. Most law firms will offer a free consultation, but you can actually start figuring out which attorney you may want to hire even before going to the firm. Before scheduling your free consultation, first ask them to send you a package of written information. It should include the following:
A sample fee agreement
A list of sample verdicts, settlements, and testimonials from former clients. A lawyer that has not had a jury trial in over a year should be avoided.
Detailed steps included in a personal injury lawsuit
Written guarantee that they carry errors and omissions insurance
Full explanation of the fees and costs, the difference between the two, and how the percentage fee is determined.
Obviously there is more to hiring a good attorney than just these tips, but these are the first steps anyone looking for legal representation should search for. When it comes to actually hiring a lawyer, make sure you ask these five important questions.
