Looking for the best attorney to represent you in a legal matter can be a difficult process. There are likely hundreds of attorneys in your area and many with experience related to your case. With so many options, how can you find the best legal representation?
We recommend you ask this one question when talking to potential attorneys: “Will you represent me?”
Will you represent me?
While it might seem like an obvious question to ask, it’s actually a very important inquiry.
What many people don’t realize is that when you choose a law firm, the principal attorney or partner lawyer may initially meet with you — but you may never see them again.
Many large law firms have a few attorneys who are the face of the practice. They are in the ads and on the website. They are who prospective clients meet with in the beginning. But many times, these high-profile partners don’t continue working directly with clients once they sign on with the law firm.
Clients of large law firms are often passed over to a team of associate attorneys or paralegals once work on their case begins.
Rather than meeting and communicating with the primary attorney, clients work with a secondary team throughout most of, if not all of, their case. For this reason, we recommend that you ask any potential legal representation about their process for working with clients.
- Will they pass you over to an associate?
- Will they communicate directly with you?
- Will they be working on your pleadings and arguments?
- Will they be in court with you?
If they aren’t responsible for these actions and activities, who is?
To find the best legal representation, you need to know exactly who you are working with. You may be putting extremely important matters into the hands of your legal team. You deserve to know who they are.
