How to choose an attorney.
Here's what to look for and what to avoid.
Avoid: Any red mark next to an attorney's name, such as misconduct. That usually means the lawyer was either disbarred, censured, cited for misconduct, or suspended from the practice of law.
Ignore: Ratings, such as 6.5 or 10, which has the highest. A 6.5 attorney may be even better than a 10. It's difficult to say. The site has its own formula for rating attorneys and many attorneys get a 10 because they belong to bar associations and sometimes give lectures. That does not necessarily mean they're the best when it comes to going to court.
What to look for: See what the clients’ reviews state, especially in the field that you're interested in (i.e. wills, custody, guardianship, etc.). That is probably going to be the most important thing. Many people have not been rated, but if there are a bunch of them who are, go with the ones who have multiple ratings and that are outstanding.
I would also suggest you find someone who has been practicing at least 10 years, the more the better. The site will tell you how long they're practicing law. You don't want someone just a few years out of law school to take on your tough case. If you can find someone practicing 20 years, even better.
Take a few names and make some phone calls.
Ask for a free consultation -- see if you can get one. If you don't feel confident in the lawyer, find another one. That's why it's good to make a list of the ones you want, maybe 4-6 lawyers and you'll find one.
If you don't like the lawyer, or aren't confident in him or her, thank the lawyer and get up and walk out. Don't sign anything such as a retainer unless you are sure you want to hire this person.
I think you're going to have plenty to choose from. Does this help?
