TOP 10 QUESTIONS TO ASK A LAWYER DURING THE INITIAL INTERVIEW

Watch out for lawyers that count bench trials (a trial held in front of a judge only, not a jury), juvenile cases, or misdemeanor trials. That is not the experience you should be looking for, and if a lawyer is counting those, its because they are light in the areas that matter.

The Top 10 Questions To Ask A Layer report is based upon my industry knowledge, discussions with hundreds of clients over the years, the unique aspects of this subject matter, hundreds of hours of advanced training and education, the Rules of Professional Responsibility, and the high standards I hold myself to. This is not an exhaustive list but can serve as a foundation for your examination of prospective lawyers. I encourage you to request my report and bring it with you to your appointment with any attorney you meet with. You don’t have to explain why you are asking the questions or how you came up with the questions, just put them to the attorney. If they object, thank them for their time and leave.

I encourage you to also think about the following areas: attorney-client communications (acceptable methods and hours), attorney availability, attorney fees and additional costs of representation, type of personality you are looking for in a lawyer, whether you are looking for a plea or to go to a jury trial, range of punishment, legal options, and anything else you need to feel completely satisfied with your decision to hire a lawyer.
