What is the Best Way to Choose a Lawyer?

This blog is a summary of the VLOG (Video Blog) located in the Wayne Grant video library titled “What is the Best Way to Choose a Lawyer?”.

Wayne Grant – GA Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Attorney

What is the best way to choose a lawyer? In a serious case, such as a death case resulting from medical malpractice or automobile negligence, often time family members feel pressured to act quickly and they forget some of the basics. The worst that you can do in this scenario is rush into a relationship with a lawyer that may not be a good fit for you.

There are two key factors that I think anyone in that situation should look at.

The first factor is, experience; make sure that the lawyer that you hire has experience in the very area in which you need representation. That sounds basic but it’s important. You wouldn’t hire a cardiac surgeon who’d never done surgery before to do your particular surgery. Well this is important, too. You have to take into consideration that you may be addressing, for example in a death case, life long economic needs.

The second factor to consider is comfort level; you’ve got to be comfortable with a lawyer that you hire, ultimately, because this is not a short term relationship. A serious case could take a year or years until conclusion, and so you’ve got to have a gut instinct, a trust or chemistry with this lawyer. If you don’t have trust and chemistry, don’t hire that lawyer! Use your instincts. If you take into consideration these two crucial factors in deciding who to hire to represent you or your family, you’ll be much better off.
