What questions should I ask an attorney I’m thinking about hiring?
You might have dozens of questions that specifically pertain to your situation, but there may be some other questions that you want to give precedence to. In your initial interview with a potential attorney, sticking to broad basics can be a good idea, as it can help you get a better understanding of the attorney and how they practice overall. Some questions you might want to consider asking include:
- Have you been successful in cases that are like mine? How many?
- Do your fees ever change, and what exactly are they?
- Do you expect a lot of personal involvement with the case from me?
- What is the best way to reach you if I have questions?
