How To Determine What Kind Of Lawyer You Need, Find Candidates And Choose Among Them

Next » « Previous


Many lawyers specialize. A list of different specialties can help you determine which kind you need. If not, consult an attorney in general practice. He or she will direct you to the necessary specialty if needed.

Most people find a lawyer through referrals from other lawyers or satisfied clients. There are also other sources available. As an informed consumer, it is helpful to also check a lawyer's background.

Once you've identified several people who have the expertise you're looking for, interview them to determine which one works best for you and the situation. Prepare a list of questions ahead of time. Our Prioritizer will help you reorder the questions in priority before the meeting.
