Tips for Choosing a Lawyer
At Koontz & Smith, Attorneys at Law, we understand you have several choices when you need a lawyer in the Salisbury, North Carolina area. We also recognize that we might not be the right one for you, especially if you have a case in a different area of law than we handle. It is wise to take your time to choose a lawyer, and we are always happy to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss whether we would be a good fit. Here are some tips for choosing a lawyer, along with the reason we believe we might be the perfect one for you.
- Experience with Your Type of Case- When you meet with a lawyer, ask them about the areas of law they cover and how much experience they have in the area of law that covers your case. It takes plenty of continuing education and research to stay on top of an area of law, so a lawyer who spreads themselves too wide is not doing you any favors. As the cliché goes – Jack of all trades, but master of none. When you want a master, call us!
- Communication Skills- You want a lawyer you can feel a connection with and who takes the time to listen to the particulars of your case without making you feel like you are inconveniencing them. Your lawyer should be skilled at communicating with you throughout your case– not just at the beginning when they are trying to get you as a client. Since 1980, we have endeavored to make every client feel comfortable and informed.
- Honesty- While it is difficult to hear from a lawyer that your case has no merit and isn’t likely to have a favorable outcome, it is better to learn that before you are emotionally and financially invested. We’ll give you an honest answer about the viability of your claim and discuss all your options so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
