'I was looking for a family attorney in my state. There is so much information on the Internet, and I found it hard to choose the perfect lawyer for my issue.

Understanding What Type of Lawyer Do I Need?

The type of lawyer you need will depend entirely on your case. For example:

  • If you are getting a divorce, trying to create a prenuptial agreement, or dealing with the custody issue, you will need a family law specialist.
  • If you are accused of a crime, you will need a criminal defense attorney.
  • If you are trying to settle your estate or create your will, a probate lawyer will be a good fit.
  • If you were in a car accident, you have been accused of medical malpractice, or you received an injury at work, a personal injury attorney is what you want.

Tips on How to Choose a Good Lawyer

The type of lawyer you need will depend entirely on your case. For example:

#1: Rely on Reputation

Reputation is important. You should find an attorney that has a good reputation. Most attorneys know one another within a given city, they know who works as defense attorneys, they know who works as prosecutors, and they know the judges. Attorneys usually have professional relationships with one another, which means they understand the tactics that the other party might use. They know where and when to push a judge for leniency. When you hire an attorney, you want someone who has those professional relationships and reputations within your area.

#2: Cheaper is Not Always Better

When you use an attorney search and you go through consultations, you should not choose a particular lawyer based on the fact that they have the cheapest price. You should pick a lawyer based on their expertise, experience, and dedication.

Cheaper is Not Always Better

#3: Find Someone with Experience

Find a lawyer with experience with your specific issue. A good attorney will specialize in a few legal areas and work within those areas. Attorneys who try to tackle everything from personal injury cases to DUI cases to divorce are not going to be nearly as effective in handling a DUI as one who works specifically with DUI cases.

How Much Is the Lawyer's Average Cost?

This depends entirely on your case. A top-rated practice will usually have more attorneys and paralegals working for them than someone who runs a solo operation. This means that certain tasks might be allocated to a paralegal who charges an average of $75 per hour, whereas other tasks, like going to court or reviewing legal documents, might be completed by the attorneys in the office at a rate of a few hundred dollars per hour. Menial tasks like making copies or sorting through your files or reaching out to a specialist who might contribute to your case could be allocated to a secretary at a rate of only $15 per hour.

When you meet with a lawyer, you can go over how their pricing structure works. Most of the time, they will tell you exactly what the hourly rate is for each of the different workers within their practice. There are certain fields, such as personal injury, where an attorney might take a percentage of your compensation award instead. In this situation, they may not charge you anything upfront but they might take 30% of whatever you are awarded. Again, this is something that an attorney will discuss with you during a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a consultation?
A consultation is a must when it comes to choosing your lawyer. When you find an attorney using our attorneys search feature, you need to know whether they can handle your particular legal issue. This means attending a consultation. Most lawyers will offer a free 30-minute consultation where you speak with them about their expertise and see whether they know the local laws and can fulfill your legal needs. They can tell you whether they are willing to take on your case and for how much, and then you can decide whether you can afford to hire them.
How do I know if my lawyer is legitimate?
Get information from your State Bar about the attorney you are considering. This will have public information about where that attorney went to law school, where they took the bar, whether they’ve ever received any type of disciplinary action, and you can even look at past cases using State records or County records.
I was accused of a crime. Do I need an attorney?
If you were accused of a crime, it is strongly recommended that you get a good criminal defense attorney. There are very few legal situations where you are required to have an attorney; you always have the option of representing yourself. However, in complex cases, it might be best for you to have an attorney. For some situations, there are legal aid options that can help you figure out how to file basic paperwork for an uncontested divorce. Generally, though, it’s always in your best interest to have an experienced criminal defense lawyer by your side.
