If you're like most business owners, you probably don't have a lot of time to research and consult with attorneys. You may need one soon, however, for help with a business contract or dispute. So how do you choose the right one? Here are four things to look for when vetting attorneys, brought to you by Wilson Legal Solutions.
What To Look For In An Attorney
Experience in Your Specific Legal Issue
You wouldn't go to a podiatrist for a heart condition, so why would you consult with a business attorney for contract disputes? Make sure the lawyer you're talking to has experience in the specific legal issue you need help with. At Wilson Legal Solutions, we have experience in business law, contract disputes, and more.
A Good Reputation Among Clients and Peers
When you're looking for an attorney, word of mouth is still one of the best ways to find someone reputable. Ask business associates or friends if they have any recommendations. Once you've compiled a list of potential lawyers, do your own research to see what their clients and peers are saying about them.
Of course, you don't want to break the bank when hiring an attorney. But be wary of lawyers who seem too good to be true - they probably are. In general, you get what you pay for when it comes to legal services. That being said, there are ways to save on costs by doing some research and legwork yourself, then consulting with an attorney for help with the more complex aspects of your case. Wilson Legal Solutions offers free consultations so you can get to know us and we can assess your legal needs. We'll work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget.
Strong Communication Skills
You should feel confident that your attorney will keep you in the loop throughout your case. He or she should be able to explain legal concepts in plain English, without all the jargon. If you have any questions, your lawyer should be readily available to answer them. At Wilson Legal Solutions, we pride ourselves on our strong communication skills and accessibility to our clients. We'll always keep you updated on the status of your case and answer any questions you may have.
