Factors to Consider in Choosing the Right Attorney

  1. How much does the attorney cost? Can you afford their legal services?
  2. How can you pay the attorney? Hourly? A one-time fee? A percentage of your settlement?
  3. Does the attorney have a license to practice law in the state where you filed your claim?
  4. Does the attorney have experience handling cases like your legal issue?
  5. Has the attorney had success in cases like yours?
