Not every lawyer is right for every case. When prospective clients call McKay Law it is because they want a skilled and experienced attorney.
When the Case Is Important to You
Choose a lawyer who shares your sense of urgency. Whether you are suing or being sued, plaintiff or defendant, a lawsuit can rapidly become an important defining event in your history. So choose an attorney who will fight for you with urgency.
Choose a lawyer who communicates and is responsive. The American Bar Association consistently warns lawyers that lack of communication and responsiveness is the number one complaint consumers have about lawyers. Lack of communication makes a case more difficult, time consuming, and more expensive. Choose a lawyer who calls you back or returns emails within 24 hours.
Choose a lawyer who will fight to enforce your rights. If you have a contract with a much larger company, for example, you need representation that stands up to the challenge and is clearly on your side in every conference, every negotiation, and every moment in a courtroom.
Choose a lawyer who knows Arizona laws and courts.
Choosing the Right Lawyer For Your Case
- Ask for a consultation.
- Find out the fees.
- Is he/she familiar with the law in your state?
- How experienced is he/she with your particular situation.
- Will there be someone to contact after hours in case of emergencies?
Overall, how comfortable were you with the experience of meeting your potential lawyer? If it was not good, move on. You are going to be spending a lot of time with both your attorney and their team. Thus, finding the right fit is essential to helping you reach the outcome you desire.
