Choosing the right lawyer for your case is a critical factor. It is highly recommended to speak to several attorneys about your case before you sign a retainer agreement.

Most lawyers offer free consultations where you can ask questions about the lawyer’s education, expertise, and whether he has handled similar cases. When meeting with a lawyer, be sure to bring all relevant paperwork connected with your case.
