When selecting a lawyer there are many options in the marketplace. You want to choose a lawyer that primarily practices in the area of law that you need assistance with, the same way you would choose a doctor. You wouldn’t select a doctor that is a knee specialist if you have a heart problem. Therefore if you have a car that is a “lemon” it is important to use an attorney that focuses on consumer law – lemon law cases as their primary practice. This attorney will know all the tricks of the trade and potential pitfalls to avoid for your case so that you can get the best settlement.
AVVO is a great tool /web site to use before you select a lawyer. You will be able to see what past clients have said about the lawyer you may hire and what types of results that lawyer has been able to achieve. You will also be able to see whether a lawyer has ever been disciplined by their state bar at any time.
Whether past clients were happy with the way that lawyer handled their case is an important indicator as to how your potential case will be handled by the lawyer. Your case may be resolved rather quickly or may take several months to reach a resolution. Therefore it is important to choose a lawyer that other clients were happy with, as you will want a lawyer that handles your case diligently. A lawyer that timely returns your phone calls or emails, doesn’t make you feel like your just a # and has a track record of fighting the more difficult cases.
