Finding an attorney is easy. Finding the right attorney for you is harder – but it’s not an impossible task. The Legal Help You Need starts with two-way communication. That means having some specific questions for your prospective attorney and listening carefully to the answers. Like nearly everything else in life, developing an effective relationship with your attorney starts with “doing your homework.” At Brzustowicz and Marotta we believe that every person’s situation is unique. We believe that, as attorneys, our job is listen thoughtfully, think proactively, and focus on you, the individual. As a prospective client, here are some things to consider:
- How will you keep me updated on my case? Will I hear from my attorney on a regular basis? If I have questions, how long will it take to get an answer? Do you return phone calls promptly?
- Has your firm handled cases like mine before? Do you have the resources to handle a case like mine? How much experience do you have in this area? If my case raises other issues, can your firm continue to represent me?
- Who will be handling my case? Will I be working with an attorney? A paralegal? Will my case be passed around from attorney to attorney?
- What’s the first step? Do you do an initial consultation? How soon can you start working on my case? What are your rates? How often do you bill me? Do I sign a letter of agreement? Is there a retainer fee?
